Labelmaster has released an updated version of its chemical-labeling reference guide, which details a number of products designed to help employers meet OSHA's revised Hazard Communication standard.
Labelmaster, a Chicago-based manufacturer and distributor of regulatory-compliance products, noted that the 16-page guide now includes an online training program, tank placards, jumbo tags and pipe markers.
"These additions expand Labelmaster's extensive line of GHS products, which include training materials, labels, pictograms, mini pictograms, custom labels, printer, printer accessories, SDS binders and software," the company said in a news release.
OSHA revised its Hazard Communication standard
in 2012 to make the standard consistent with the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
Once the standard is fully implemented in 2016, it will prevent an estimated 43 deaths and 585 injuries and illnesses annually, according to the agency.
In an announcement last year, OSHA said the revised standard will "benefit workers by reducing confusion about chemical hazards in the workplace, facilitating safety training and improving understanding of hazards, especially for low-literacy workers."
