Sept. 6: Canada and US Release New GHS Coordination Plan
Health Canada and OSHA have developed a 2016-2017 Workplace Chemicals Work Plan to ensure that current and future requirements for classifying and communicating the hazards of workplace chemicals will be acceptable in both Canada and the US without reducing worker safety. The work plan includes activities that support:
- Developing materials to assist stakeholders with implementing the GHS and understanding the interpretation of technical issues and requirements in Canada and the US
- Coordinating opinions on issues that arise from international discussions on the GHS
- Maintaining alignment between the Canadian and US requirements for implementing the GHS when revisions are made.
