GHS is a more logical and comprehensive approach to defining health, physical and environmental hazards of chemicals, creating classification processes that use available data on chemicals for comparison with the defined hazard criteria and communicating hazard information, as well as protective measures, on labels and Safety Data Sheets.

OSHA Partners with Health Canada to Unify Hazardous Chemical Classification

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) announced last month that it will continue it’s partnership with Health Canada to align regulatory approaches regarding the labeling and classification requirements for workplace chemicals in the United States and Canada.

The goal of this continued partnership is to implement a system that would have one label and one safety data sheet that is accepted for use in both countries. In 2013, both OSHA and Health Canada signed a memorandum of understanding to promote the ongoing collaborative efforts of implementing a “globally harmonized system of classification and labeling”.

OSHA aligned it’s Hazard Communication Standard with this harmonized system back in March of 2012 to provide a common and understandable approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets. Canada published a similar regulation in February of this year.

OSHA’s Hazard Communication webpage, which you can access by clicking here, includes links to the revised Hazard Communication Standard as well as guidance materials, such as frequently asked questions and fact sheets. You can read the full version of this OSHA news release by clicking here.
