The key quotes from the article inlcude:
One result of this collaboration is that OSHA does not see any reason for NFPA 704 to be revised in order to correspond with the GHS category numbering...
For now, NFPA and OSHA are working to ensure that the two systems can effectively work together without significant change. Going forward, experience from full implementation of the GHS system may demonstrate a need for slight changes to NFPA's system, but without the expectation that it would ever be eliminated.
