Understanding the Role of Hazard Communication in 2020
It has been 37 years since the Occupational Health & Safety Administration adopted the first Hazard Communication Standard, or HCS, for the manufacturing sector. In the years since the first HCS, OSHA has worked to include nearly all employers and adopt the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) to align the United States with the rest of the world.
This presentation will explore the changes HCS has seen in the last 37 years, as well as what actions employers are required to take to stay in compliance with the Hazard Communication Standard in 2020.
