Jennifer Gibson of NACD Advocates Alternatives to Proposed Changes to Safety Data Sheets

This week OSHA heard testimony regarding its proposed revisions to the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) that would radically affect SDS authoring and services. These changes are designed to achieve alignment with the 7th Revision to the Globally Harmonized System but many from the industry have testified that they will add burdensome and ineffective compliance obligations for chemical manufacturers.

Quantum has been advocating in this area and joins many industry associations to add its voice. In particular we have been working with the National Association of Chemical Distributors to articulate these concerns.
