Chemical Hazard News Highlights – June 5, 2015

Welcome to MSDSonline’s weekly news roundup, featuring EHS stories from the week that you might have missed.

This week we saw the passing of the June 1, 2015 deadline under which OSHA requires chemical manufacturers and distributors to complete the process of reclassifying hazardous chemicals and update their safety data sheets to the new GHS format. Much of the chemical hazard news this week was dominated by this deadline. There were also prominent stories in the mainstream media about possible chemical hazards that may be found in sportswear and car seats for small children, and OSHA issued its first ever best practices for transgender employees.
