On February 16, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed rules to modify the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to conform to the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) Revision 7, which is more current than the version of the GHS that’s incorporated into the existing HCS.

If passed, the rules are expected to affect 115,758 firms, 152,427 establishments, and 1,510,780 employees. The proposed changes can be read at www.regulations.gov/document/OSHA-2019-0001-0258, and public comments will be accepted until April 19.
