What’s happening with GHS and OSHA? — A Conversation with Karin Baron

This week I sat down with Karin Baron, Senior Regulatory Consultant to B&C and our affiliated consultancy, The Acta Group, to discuss the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).  Listeners know GHS is the non-mandatory framework intended to aid in identifying, classifying, and communicating information on the hazards of chemicals or substances for occupational, consumer, and environmental exposures.  Despite the “harmonization” part in GHS, there continue to be significant areas of non-harmonization on a global scale that confound stakeholders at all levels.  For professionals working in this space, GHS can be rewarding, immensely confusing, and a bit frustrating.

Karin talks a bit about the new Biden Administration and any foreseeable changes in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) implementation of the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) and the recently proposed rule that will amend the HCS, brings us up to date on the current status of GHS Revision 9, and addresses the status of GHS more globally, especially in Canada, as what is going on with our northern neighbors is always significant for U.S. businesses.
