Major Changes to the Hazard Communication Standard

Hazard Classification: Provides specific criteria for classification of health and physical hazards, as well as classification of mixtures.

Labels: Chemical manufacturers and importers will be required to provide a label that includes a harmonized signal word, pictogram, and hazard statement for each hazard class and category. Precautionary statements must also be provided.

Safety Data Sheets: Will now have a specified 16-section format.

Information and Training: Employers are required to train their workers on the new labels elements and safety data sheets format to facilitate recognition and understanding.

HAZARD COMMUNICATION WRITTEN PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT AND NEW LABELING/SDS IMPLEMENTATION
HAZARD COMMUNICATION WRITTEN PROGRAM UPDATE WITH GHS IMPLEMENTATION

With any revised standard comes revised written programs (if applicable). The new Hazard Communication Standard will affect all companies that deal with hazardous materials, whether only once a year or on a daily basis, your policy and procedures will need to reflect the new changes and with a revised or newly written program comes employee training so they understand and recognize your policy and  procedures to your specific processes and hazards.

This is where we come in. We will update your written program for only

*Includes two revisions per program and per one site. Does not include onsite audit.
The GHS symbols have been incorporated into pictograms for use on GHS labels. Pictograms include the harmonized hazard symbols plus other graphic elements, such as borders, background patterns or colors which are intended to convey specific information.

For transport, pictograms will have the background, symbol and colors currently used in the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Model Regulations. For other sectors, pictograms will have a black symbol on a white background with a red diamond frame. A black frame may be used for shipments within one country. Where a transport pictogram appears, the GHS pictogram for the same hazard should not appear.

AUDITS AND NEW LABELING/SAFETY DATA SHEET (SDS) IMPLEMENTATION

The need for GHS labels and/or Safety Data Sheets is expected to vary by product category or stage in the chemical's lifecycle from research/production to end use however, the specific hazard criteria, classification processes, label elements and SDS requirements will need to be modified to be consistent with the harmonized elements of the GHS. The standardized label elements included in the GHS are:

Symbols (hazard pictograms): Convey health, physical and environmental hazard information, assigned to a GHS hazard class and category.
Signal Words: "Danger" or "Warning" are used to emphasize hazards and indicate the relative level of severity of the hazard, assigned to a GHS hazard class and category.
Hazard Statements: Standard phrases assigned to a hazard class and category that describe the nature of the hazard.
