There is just over 1 month left for businesses to comply with the OSHA 2012 rule requiring training of employees on the changes to the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) including the updates to product labeling and material safety data sheets. Most aviation businesses will have to meet this requirement. NATA Safety 1st provides an online training solution. More information on the Safety 1st OSHA HazCom training can be found at www.nata.aero/hazcom.
In 2012, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) revised their HCS. The HCS is now aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). This update to HCS will provide a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communication hazard information on labels and safety data sheets. Once implemented, the revised standard will improve the quality and consistency of hazard information in the workplace, making it safer for workers.
