What is HazCom?

hazcom_290pxInl 2012, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) incorporated the third revision of the GHS Standard in the 29 CFR 1910.1200 standard, commonly known as HazCom. This standard specifies classification criteria, while also standardising label elements and chemical product information to be indicated in the SDS concerning the US market.

HazCom is being updated

Right now, OSHA is working on harmonising the Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom) with the 7th UN GHS revision, the most recent one. We can expect a number of differences between the existing HazCom 2012 version and the upcoming revision, since this new version will incorporte new implementations that were introduced to UN GHS Revision 4th to 7th.

Trace One is monitoring the situation and will update you concerning this important update of the HazCom standard.
