While a specific date for the official update to the GHS regulations by OSHA is yet to be confirmed, Doug Parker, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health in the United States, recently shed some light on the matter during a speech in San Antonio. Acknowledging Canada’s proactive approach, Parker highlighted that the United States is actively working on rulemaking to align its warning and information system for hazardous chemicals with global harmonization efforts. This progress signifies a step towards a more unified and consistent system. Although a timeline for the announcement remains uncertain, Parker expressed optimism for an earlier release.
