  • If your workplace may expose employees to hazardous chemicals, you must train your employees on new label elements and a new Safety Data Sheet (SDS) format by December 1, 2013. Despite the fact that full compliance with the revised Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) isn't required until 2015, the training deadline is early because the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) believes that U.S. workplaces will soon begin to receive the new labels and SDSs, meaning employees must learn how to use them and access the information effectively.
