OSHA and the Society for Chemical Hazard Communication Renew Alliance

The alliance aims to reduce and prevent workers' exposure to chemical hazards.

OSHA has renewed its alliance with the Society for Chemical Hazard Communication to reduce and prevent worker exposure to chemical hazards. According to the OSHA news release, the alliance also intends to increase awareness of the requirements of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals and the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers under the OSH Act.

"American workers use thousands of chemicals every day, and every year tens of thousands of workers are made sick or die from occupational exposures to hazardous chemicals," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels. "Our renewed partnership with SCHC will extend our efforts toward ensuring healthier workers and safer workplaces."

OSHA and SCHC will develop information materials on the health and physical hazards of chemicals, and elements of a GHS-compliant label and Safety Data Sheets based on OSHA requirements.

The purpose of each alliance is to develop compliance assistance tools and resources, and to educate workers and employers about their rights and responsibilities.
