OSHA allies with professional society to reduce chemical hazard risks
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Society for Chemical Hazard Communication are once again renewing their alliance to increase awareness about chemical risks at work, according to a report by Business Insurance on April 13.
OSHA and the Virginia-based professional group would work hand-in-hand to develop hazard communication training tools to reduce the risks associated with chemical hazards at work. The partnership will also raise awareness about labeling hazardous materials in compliance with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), a framework to classify and label hazardous chemicals at work.
The GHS is set to be implemented by June 1, 2015.
Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels said thousands of workers become sick or die due to exposure to hazardous chemicals at work.
