HAZMAT Data Sheets, Labels changing

  • Published
  • Robins Public Affairs
Team Robins members will soon see changes in Labels and Safety Data Sheets used for hazardous materials.

That's because OSHA now requires the use of new labeling elements and a standardized format for Safety Data Sheets, formerly known as Material Safety Data Sheets.

The changes are aimed at improving employee understanding of the hazards associated with the chemicals in their workplace, and more closely align U.S. standards with those of the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.

Training will be provided over the next few weeks. The training only applies to those who currently require HAZCOM training.
