This topic covers OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS or HazCom), including the new Globally Harmonized System (GHS) amendments.
It applies to every employer whose workers may be exposed to hazardous chemicals, and requires the employer to make employees aware of these hazards. For a compliance timetable, links to GHS training materials, and additional GHS information, see this HazCom Training article and BLR’s GHS and Hazard Communication Resource Center.
