Who has Responsibilities Chemical Manufacturers  Evaluate and now also classify hazards of chemicals  Provide labels & MSDSs to employers to which they ship chemicals Importers & Distributors  Provide labels & MSDSs to employers to which they ship chemicals Employers Who “Use” Chemicals Are responsible for the following as part of a compliant HazCom program: 1. Written Hazard Communication Plan / Program 2. Written Chemical Inventory 3. Ensuring proper use of Labels and Warnings 4. Maintaining MSDSs and providing Right-to-Know access to employees 5. Providing Employee Training 12

Enter GHS GHS = Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals  1 st edition approved in 2002 and published by UN in 2003 Result of international mandate (Chapter 19 of Agenda 21) from 1992 Rio Earth Summit (i.e.,UNCED)  Deemed to be single most important driving force behind the creation of GHS  Aimed to be completed GHS by 2000  A coordinating group chaired by OSHA was established to manage the work Common & coherent global approach  To Classifying and Defining & Communicating Hazards  Provides Consistency/ Harmonization to Labels and Safety Data Sheets 14

15 Copyright © , MSDSonline®. All Rights Reserved. MSDSonline® is a proprietary trademark of MSDSonline. All other trademarks are the property of the respective owners. GHS At-A-Glance GHS is Not…  A Regulation, Standard or Mandate GHS is…  An Approach. It contains criteria, provisions, and explanatory text for harmonizing hazard communication  Adaptable by Country (and Agency)  Referred to as the “Building Block Approach”  Select parts of system that apply to existing regulations  Implementation consistent with requirements in place, or can use to create new requirements 15

16 Copyright © , MSDSonline®. All Rights Reserved. MSDSonline® is a proprietary trademark of MSDSonline. All other trademarks are the property of the respective owners. Why is GHS Needed? Better Trade Compliance with multiple regulations is costly and time-consuming Regulatory burdens make it difficult for companies to compete internationally 16

Two Most Prevalent Changes Hazard Classification Criteria  Health & Environmental Hazards  Physical Hazards  Mixtures Hazard ‘Communication’  Labels  Safety Data Sheets  Training OSHA is referring to revised standard as “HazCom 2012” 21

22 Copyright © , MSDSonline®. All Rights Reserved. MSDSonline® is a proprietary trademark of MSDSonline. All other trademarks are the property of the respective owners. Two Most Prevalent Changes “"Classification" means to identify the relevant data regarding the hazards of a chemical; review those data to ascertain the hazards associated with the chemical; and decide whether the chemical will be classified as hazardous according to the definition of hazardous chemical in this section.” OSHA added the definition of Classification to the revised standard: 22

23 Copyright © , MSDSonline®. All Rights Reserved. MSDSonline® is a proprietary trademark of MSDSonline. All other trademarks are the property of the respective owners. Two Most Prevalent Changes 2 nd Key Component of the New Definition: “In addition, classification for health and physical hazards includes the determination of the degree of hazard, where appropriate, by comparing the data with the criteria for health and physical hazards.” 23

SDS – To Do Make sure staff is on the lookout for new, GHS formatted SDSs – especially for chemicals you regularly receive Talk to your chemical suppliers and ask about their plans to transition to GHS – the sooner switch over happens…the easier it will be on us all Be in active preparation mode for GHS training. Have a plan and make sure employees are ready to read the GHS SDSs and labels Don’t forget SARA obligations: update local and state emergency response agencies when new chemical hazard information becomes available 43

Pretty much everyone who “uses” hazardous chemicals has some responsibility… some more than others Who’s Affected? Chemical Manufacturers have some work to do around re-classifying chemicals, and then re- authoring MSDSs, labels and warnings to make them GHS compliant Resellers, Distributors, Importers get new MSDSs and labels ASAP & distribute to customers Employers... 44

45 Copyright © , MSDSonline®. All Rights Reserved. MSDSonline® is a proprietary trademark of MSDSonline. All other trademarks are the property of the respective owners. Inventory your on-site chemicals Make sure you have a complete library of MSDSs Employers... Have an HCS plan! Maintain a checklist of key plan components Review it annually, at least Prepare yourself for the eventual MSDS churn If you’re still using paper, consider transitioning to electronic system Make sure your secondary labeling system is GHS compliant Start developing a training plan for your employees Stay current on OSHA  Federal  State & local Keep an eye on GHS  Key dates  Impact on your plan Request GHS compliant SDSs from chemical vendors Ensure staff is on the lookout for SDSs with new shipments Stay SARA compliant 45
