ASSE weighs in on GHS

Posted by Clarion Safety Systems | 4th Oct 2009

The American Society of Safety Engineers has hailed OSHA for moving forward with the UN's GHS program. The rule change by OSHA, if adopted as is now expected, would harmonize OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard with the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). ASSE's letter to OSHA can be read in its entirety here.

The step toward GHS is part of a broad and continuing increase in new rulemaking and enforcement activities since the change in administrations in Washington. OSHA's complete news release on the move gives additional insight into the decision.

NOTE: Our company has a long history of supplying labels and signs to alert workers to chemical and other hazards, as well as the separate NFPA 704 signs that are intended to alert first responders, firefighters and similar personnel to a substance's dangers. The NFPA 704 signs can easily be customized with our digital design and printing capability; for a personal consultation check with our compliance department.
