Hazard Communication has always required labeling, but has never required NFPA labeling, or HMIS labeling. Until GHS was implemented, the format of the labeling was left to the employer.

Regional or local authorities might require NFPA labels, or the HazMat organization might require them, but OSHA does not.

Dear DCHAS members,

It seems that from the attached OSHA HazComm info,

The NFPA labeling might no longer be required. From a Hazardous Materials Technician level (completing this in Oct.) I would use that placard as fist line if identification. Any ideas as to why it might not be required?

Thank you in advance.
