Are You GHS Ready?
Expert Safety Data Sheet & Chemical Label Authoring
If your company manufacturers, imports, stores or distributes hazardous chemicals in the United States, then OSHA's adoption of GHS resulted in new compliance obligations for your business. By June 1, 2015, OSHA expected every hazardous chemical in the U.S. to be reclassified using the newly adopted GHS health and physical hazard classification criteria.
By the same deadline, OSHA required every MSDS and shipped label for the reclassified chemicals to be updated to the new GHS-styled format. The new MSDS format consists of 16 sections in a strict order. OSHA and GHS refer to MSDSs authored in this new style as SDSs.The new GHS-aligned shipped label format requires use of six standardized elements that correspond with information found on the SDS.
Reclassifying chemicals and authoring in the new GHS style is both an art and a science. It is a task well suited for VelocityEHS' team of certified authoring professionals. Unlike our approach for users of our online solutions, where we recommend and provide users with the tools they need to effectively manage compliance on their own via the cloud, with our MSDSonline Authoring Services, we recommend and provide a hands-on-approach.
