Make no mistake: bringing your organization into compliance with the revisions to the Hazard Communication Standard will require your organization to make major changes to your current Hazard Communication Program including:
- Revising your hazardous chemicals inventory to reflect hazardous substance re-classification
- Converting from MSDSs to new safety data sheets
- Trading your old HAZCOM labels to the new “harmonized” ones
- Training employees to use the new SDSs and labeling system
.. and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Changes to your Hazard Communication Program will also affect other safety programs, from how you handle combustible liquids to substance-specific health standards.
Although the transition to the revised Rule will take years to complete, the clock has already started ticking, and the time to start planning your transition is NOW.
Is Your Company Prepared to Develop a Strategy to Make the Necessary Changes?
