US OSHA—Hazard Communication—Change to Safety Data Sheets
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (29CFR1910.1200) requires manufacturers to prepare Safety Data Sheets for chemical products that are considered “hazardous” according to the regulation. For a chemical or formulation to be hazardous under OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, it must present either a physical hazard or health hazard.
On June 1, 2015 OSHA’s revised Hazard Communication Standard became effective. The Hazard Communication Standard now requires chemical manufacturers, distributors, or importers to provide new Safety Data Sheets, formerly known as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), in a revised uniform format that includes standardized section numbers and headings.
All Hospira products which require a Safety Data Sheet under the regulation have been revised and updated to the new SDS format. For the purposes of hazard communication, the term MSDS and SDS are used interchangeably on our product catalog during this transition period.
