- It's Not Too Late
Hazard Communication Regulation revisions have been finalized by Fed-OSHA and Cal/OSHA to incorporate requirements of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) mandate.
All employees should have been trained on the new label elements and safety data sheet format by Dec. 1, 2013. IT'S NOT TOO LATE!
By June 1, 2016, the written Hazard Communication
Program must be revised to comply with the new requirements.
