OSHA & PHMSA (DOT) Seeking Comments

OSHA’s Hazard Communications-GHS (2012) Regulation is slated for its five-year review and several changes are proposed.  If you have suggestions on how to better synchronize or clarify the OSHA HazCom and/or DOT Regulations with the Global Harmonized System (GHS) Standard, OSHA and PHMSA is requesting your input.

OSHA is scheduled to lead a public meeting on Nov. 14 in advance of the 34th session of the United Nations Sub-Committee of Experts on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.

According to a notice published in the Sept. 20 Federal Register, OSHA and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, which will host the meeting, are seeking feedback as the federal government prepares for the UNSCEGHS conference, set for Dec. 6 to 8 in Geneva, Switzerland. The meeting is slated for 1 to 4 p.m. Eastern at the Department of Transportation headquarters.

OSHA is hosting the meeting “to provide interested groups and individuals with an update on GHS-related issues, and to solicit input on the development of U.S. government positions on proposals submitted to UNSCEGHS.”

DOT asks that attendees pre-register for the meetings. Both meetings also will have call-in availability and Skype capability
