What Do You Need to Know about the Change in the HazCom Regulation?

Employers are responsible for implementing the changes in the Hazard Communication regulation at their dealership. So, as an employer, what do you need to know about the Hazard Communication changes?

  1. Hazards must now be classified, noting the hazard class and hazard category. This will define the level of hazard and the degree of severity.
  2. Percentages for classifying mixtures now have a tiered approach, instead of broad definitions.
  3. The new standard requires specific and information and language on labels. Harmonized signal words, pictograms, and hazard statements must be used. Additionally, statements listing precautionary hazard measures must be listed.
  4. 16-section safety data sheets (SDS) are now required to provide consistent information.
  5. OSHA’s mandatory permissible exposure limits (PELs) and the non-mandatory threshold limit values (TLVs) must be listed on the SDS.
  6. Employers are required to train employees on the new label elements.
  7. Employees must be trained on the new standard by December 1, 2013. Compliance with the modified provision of the final rule must be met by June 1, 2016.
  8. Distributors may ship products labeled under the old HazCom standard until Dec. 1, 2015.
  9. Employers must update workplace labeling and written hazard communications by June 1, 2016.
