OSHA has issued a final rule that updates the Hazard Communication Standard to align with the seventh revision of the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. The final rule was published on May 20, 2024, and takes effect on July 19, 2024.

Join this webinar and hear from the OSHA HazCom Team including Janet Carter, Varun Patel, Brenda Finter, and Deana Holmes about how the updated standard will:

• Improve the information on labels and safety data sheets,
• Improve the standard’s effectiveness by better informing employees about chemical hazards in the workplace,
• Increase worker protections and reduce the incidences of chemical-related occupational illnesses and injuries,
• Address issues arising since implementation of the 2012 standard, and
• Improve alignment with other federal agencies and Canada
