1OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS)and GHS

The United States officially adopted the Global Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) on March 26, 2012. OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is actually a revision of the original Hazard Communication Standard to align with the GHS.OSHA revised its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to align with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) and published it in the Federal Register in March 2012 (77 FR 17574). 2OSHA HCS Training ComplianceAdopting GHS brings major changes to OSHA HCS in 2 major areas.

Label ElementsSafety Data Sheets

Two significant changes contained in the revised standard require the use of new labeling elements and a standardized format for Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), formerly known as, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs). The new label elements and SDS requirements will improve worker understanding of the hazards associated with the chemicals in their workplace. To help companies comply with the revised standard, OSHA is phasing in the specific requirements over several years (December 1, 2013 to June 1, 2016). 3OSHA HCS Training ComplianceLabel ElementsProduct IdentifierSupplier IdentifierSignal WordHazard PictogramsHazard StatementPrecautionary Statements

4OSHA HCS Training ComplianceLabel ElementsProduct Identifier

Product identifier: how the hazardous chemical is identified. This can be (but is not limited to) the chemical name, code number or batch number. The manufacturer, importer or distributor can decide the appropriate product identifier. The same product identifier must be both on the label and in Section 1 of the SDS (Identification). 5OSHA HCS Training ComplianceLabel ElementsProduct IdentifierSupplier Identifier

Name, address and phone number of the chemical manufacturer, distributor, or importer6OSHA HCS Training ComplianceLabel ElementsProduct IdentifierSupplier IdentifierSignal Word

Signal word: used to indicate the relative level of severity of hazard and alert the reader to a potential hazard on the label. There are only two signal words, Danger and Warning. Within a specific hazard class, Danger is used for the more severe hazards and Warning is used for the less severe hazards. There will only be one signal word on the label no matter how many hazards a chemical may have. If one of the hazards warrants a Danger signal word and another warrants the signal word Warning, then only Danger should appear on the label.7OSHA HCS Training ComplianceLabel ElementsProduct IdentifierSupplier IdentifierSignal WordHazard Pictograms

Hazard Pictogram: OSHAs required pictograms must be in the shape of a square set at a point and include a black hazard symbol on a white background with a red frame sufficiently wide enough to be clearly visible. A square red frame set at a point without a hazard symbol is not a pictogram and is not permitted on the label. OSHA has designated eight pictograms under this standard for application to a hazard category.8OSHA HCS Training ComplianceHazard PictogramsExploding BombGas CylinderHealth HazardFlameSkull and CrossbonesExclamation MarkFlame Over CircleCorrosion

17OSHA HCS Training ComplianceLabel ElementsProduct IdentifierSupplier IdentifierSignal WordHazard PictogramsHazard Statement

Hazard statement(s): describe the nature of the hazard(s) of a chemical, including, where appropriate, the degree of hazard. For example: Causes damage to kidneys through prolonged or repeated exposure when absorbed through the skin. All of the applicable hazard statements must appear on the label. Hazard statements may be combined where appropriate to reduce redundancies and improve readability. The hazard statements are specific to the hazard classification categories, and chemical users should always see the same statement for the same hazards, no matter what the chemical is or who produces it. 18OSHA HCS Training ComplianceLabel ElementsProduct IdentifierSupplier IdentifierSignal WordHazard PictogramsHazard StatementPrecautionary Statements

Precautionary statement(s): means a phrase that describes recommended measures that should be taken to minimize or prevent adverse effects resulting from exposure to a hazardous chemical or improper storage or handling.19OSHA HCS Training ComplianceUsing Labels in the workplaceEnsure proper storage of hazardous chemicalsQuickly locate first aid information when neededby employees or emergency personnelChemicals with multiple hazards,multiple pictograms are used to identifyvarious hazards.When there are similar precautionary statements, the one providing the most protective information will be included on the label.

The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires chemical manufacturers, distributors, or importers to provide Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) (formerly known as Material Safety Data Sheets or MSDSs) to communicate the hazards of hazardous chemical products. As of June 1, 2015, the HCS will require new SDSs to be in a uniform format, and include the section numbers, the headings, and associated information under the headings below:21OSHA HCS Training ComplianceSafety Data SheetsIdentification

Section 1, Identification includes product identifier; manufacturer or distributor name, address, phone number; emergency phone number; recommended use; restrictions on use.22OSHA HCS Training ComplianceSafety Data SheetsIdentificationHazard(s) Identification
