Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals Update
The MIOSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is now aligned with the GHS Classification and Labeling of Chemicals which requires new label elements and new, standardized, 16-section Safety Data Sheets (SDS). This HCS alignment also affects many other MIOSHA standards, including MIOSHA’s Part 431 (Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories) Standard.
All Researchers, i.e., those who currently work with hazardous chemicals or are potentially exposed to hazardous chemicals, in the normal course of their employment are required to take the on-line GHS training module (BLS040w) by 12/01/13.
