Last month I learned that OSHA will soon be changing its hazard communication standards to better align them with international standards and systems. These new standards will include establishing a single set of harmonized criteria for classifying chemicals and mixtures according to their health, physical, and environmental hazards as well as adding standardized “signal words” and pictograms to labels (keep checking our blog for an upcoming post about these new labeling criteria).
There will be several different items that will require the new Safety Data Sheets and communication labels. Hazards of all chemicals produced or imported will need to be classified. This includes all physical hazards, health hazards, special OSHA defines hazards, and hazards not otherwise classified. Before we get into the new labeling rules, I thought it would be a good idea to better define these hazard types.
As the name states, hazards which are not otherwise classified includes any hazards that are identified during the classification process but which have not yet been classified.
