Hazard Communication / GHS Information, Training and Resources

GHS Update

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is now aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). This update to the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) will provide a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets. The revised MIOSHA Part 42, 92, & 430 Hazard Communication standard will improve the quality and consistency of hazard information in the workplace, making it safer for workers by providing easily understandable information on appropriate handling and safe use of hazardous chemicals. This update will also help reduce trade barriers and result in productivity improvements for American businesses that regularly handle, store, and use hazardous chemicals while providing cost savings for American businesses that periodically update safety data sheets and labels for chemicals covered under the hazard communication standard. MIOSHA has developed a handout summarizing the major changes to the Hazard Communication Standard.  Use the links below to access the MIOSHA Hazard Communication handout and OSHA's Hazard Communication tools and information. 

Hazard Communication Employee Training Options - Use one of these to meet the 12/01/13 training deadline in the revised standard.
