OSHA makes significant change to rule pertaining to Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

New title means new training required

OSHA recently altered the way in which hazardous material labeling will look. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) will now be called Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and will have a new look, with a more consistent definition and the addition of standard pictograms. Education and training is required on your part to educate your employees now, before new product labels arrive.
This new training must be in place by December 1, 2013.

Please see this YouTube video for a quick understanding of the new OSHA rules and regulations pertaining to Hazard Communications.
The “Highlights” section on the OSHA page pertaining to the new changes have many useful downloads for your use.
