OSHA’s NPRM to Update the HazCom Standard: What are the Proposed Changes and How Would They Affect You?


OSHA recently published a long-awaited notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would update its Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom) to align with Revision 7 of the UN’s Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The proposed revisions would have far-reaching impact throughout the chemical supply chain, including the need for manufacturers to reclassify certain chemicals, reauthor safety data sheets (SDSs) for those chemicals, and develop new shipped container labels. End-users would have to evaluate whether they have chemicals affected by the HazCom changes in their workplace, manage a potential wave of updated SDSs and shipped labels and update their own HazCom practices accordingly.

This webinar reviews the background of the NPRM and the proposed changes, taking a close look at significant changes such as new classifications for several categories of chemicals and changes to labelling requirements and select hazard and precautionary statements.

Register today for an in-depth look at OSHA’s NPRM so you can make sure your business and your people are well-prepared.

This webinar includes:

  • A brief review of the HazCom Standard and the previous alignment of the Standard with GHS Revision 3 due via the 2012 final rule
  • A discussion of proposed changes to classifications of several categories of hazardous chemicals and the industries most likely to be impacted by the changes
  • An explanation of proposed changes to labelling requirements for “small” and “very small” containers, proposed updates to hazard and precautionary statements, and proposed changes that would better align hazard communication requirements between the United States and Canada
  • An analysis of the next steps to expect following the NPRM and best practices that chemical users throughout the supply chain can take to prepare for future changes and maintain compliance with the HazCom Standard
