Does your company manufacture, import, store or distribute chemical products? According
to OSHA Hazard Communication requirements (29 CFR 1910.1200), you are required to review
all known physical and health hazards of the chemicals you produce or import to determine if
they are hazardous. In addition, you also may be required to do the same for EPA requirements.
You are required to have a process for collecting and assessing this information, in turn generating
safety data sheets for these chemical products. Once written, the MSDSs must be made available to
every downstream user, including your employees, distributors and customers.
Ready for GHS Compliance?
The Global Harmonization System (GHS) is a worldwide standardized approach to hazard communication,
which is supported by the United Nations and regulatory agencies around the globe, including OSHA.
In short, GHS can be summarized into three main components:
Standardized hazard definitions and symbols
Standardized MSDS format and content
Standardized hazard warnings and symbols on container labels
Thus, if you are a chemical manufacturer, you will likely need to re-author your MSDSs into
the GHS format and ensure all labels meet the GHS requirements.
