Yesterday, OSHA issued the proposed rulemaking to update the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to meet the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) requirements. You can access it at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2009/pdf/E9-22483.pdf. It is 271 pages long (11.6 Mb), they provide lots of legal and economic information about the impact the change may have on the nation=92s business, as well as a list of changes in a variety of other standards beyond 1910.1200, including the lab standard. They are looking for comments on any and all aspects of the proposal.
