OSHAs adoption is actually a re vis ion of the;HCS to align with GHS. OSHA calls this revision HazComm 2012.;GHS is no tag lo ballawo rre g ulatio n, but a set of recommendations or collection of best;practices. No country is obligated to adopt all or any part of the GHS. Countries can pick and;choose which parts of the GHS they wish to incorporate into their own regulations, and they are;responsible for its enforcement.;To date, over 65 countries have adopted GHS or are in the process of doing so.;Biggest changes for those adopting GHS will be safety labels, SDSs, and chemical;classification.;Biggest costs to businesses is to re-classify all chemicals using GHS criteria and train workers;on these changes.;GHS andHazCo mm;The reason OSHA is adopting this new;system;Facts about GHS (cont.);GHS is meant to be a logical and comprehensive approach to;1.;Defining health, physical and environmental hazards of chemicals (although;environmental hazards are outside OSHAs jurisdiction).;2.;Creating classification processes that use available data on chemicals for comparison;with the defined hazard criteria.;3.;Communicating hazard information in a prscribed and uniform way on labels and;SDS.;In the U.S., GHS adoption is under the domain of OSHA, EPA, DOT and;Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).;DOT was actually the first agency to implement GHS, OSHAs adoption brings;the regulations between;these two agencies into greater harmony.

The numbers in the GHS system, as adopted by;OSHA, do not show up on the label, instead they are used to determine what;goes on the label. The numbers do appear on GHS formatted safety data;sheets, in Section 2, but OSHA believes the use of numbers there will be less;confusing since there is much more contextual information available to help the;reader understand the hazard information.

Generally, this means the s am e room where the waste is;generated.;Containers - During storage all waste containers must be kept closed except;when it is necessary to add or remove waste. Evaporation of wastes in fume;hoods is prohibited. Containers must be maintained in good condition (i.e. no;rust, dents or leaks, etc.) and must be compatible with the wastes they contain.;Poly type containers are preferred. If glass containers are used place inside a;plastic tub for secondary containment in the event of breakage, follow spill;procedures if breakage occurs.;Labeling - Federal and State laws require labels listing the container contents;preferably full chemical name (not chemical formula) with concentration. The;University provides specially designed yellow Chemical Waste tags to help meet;this requirement. With the first drop of waste placed into a container a Chemical;Waste tag must be attached to that container. By meeting labeling requirements;for waste the university can avoid most lab violations.;Hazardo us Was te Manag e me nt;(c o nt.);Volume Limit - By law generators may store up to 55 gallons of;chemical waste or one quart of an acutely hazardous waste in the;satellite accumulation area. This means one container at a time;only, of a particular waste. Due to limited space and for safer;handling, we ask that waste be collected in containers not larger;than 5 gallons/20 liters.;Holding Times - Maximum storage time of waste is one year;provided the volume restrictions have not been exceeded. This is a;Missouri Department of Natural Resources law. However;unive rs itypo lic ylimits s to rag e to 90days.
