OSHA is proposing to modify its existing Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to conform with the United Nations' (UN) Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). OSHA has made a preliminary determination that the proposed modifications will improve the quality and consistency of information provided to employers and employees regarding chemical hazards and associated protective measures. The Agency anticipates this improved information will enhance the effectiveness of the HCS in ensuring that employees are apprised of the chemical hazards to which they may be exposed, and in reducing the incidence of chemical-related occupational illnesses and injuries.

Written comments. Written comments, including comments on the information collection determination described in Section VIII of the preamble (OMB Review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995), must be submitted by the following dates:
Hard copy: Comments must be submitted (postmarked or sent) by December 29, 2009.
Facsimile and electronic transmissions: Comments must be sent by December 29, 2009.
Informal public hearings. The Agency will schedule an informal public hearing on the proposed rule. The location and date of the hearing, procedures for interested parties to notify the Agency of their intention to participate, and procedures for participants to submit their testimony and documentary evidence will be announced in the Federal Register.

Written comments. You may submit comments by any of the following methods:
Electronically: You may submit comments electronically at, which is the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal. Follow the instructions on-line for making electronic submissions.

Fax: If your submissions, including attachments, are not longer than 10 pages, you may fax them to the OSHA Docket Office at (202) 693-1648.
Mail, hand delivery, express mail, messenger or courier service: You must submit three copies of your comments to the OSHA Docket Office, Docket No. OSHA-H022K-2006-0062, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N-2625, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210. Deliveries (hand, express mail, messenger and courier service) are accepted during the Department of Labor's and Docket Office's normal business hours, 8:15 a.m.-4:45 p.m., E.T.
Instructions: All submissions must include the Agency name and the docket number for this rulemaking (Docket No. OSHA-H022K-2006-0062). All comments, including any personal information you provide, are placed in the public docket without change and may be made available online at Therefore, OSHA cautions you about submitting personal information such as social security numbers and birthdates.

I'm looking for ideas about fun and games to use while doing haz com training -- things that will keep it lively and enjoyable.
Comment by Ashley Herwels on March 16, 2009 at 9:55pm
Hi All! I am looking for assistance in setting up training modules for chemical specific application training for our Chemical Process Workers e.g. Liquid Caustic- the basic physics, DOs and DONTs, etc. I am aware that the Material Safety Data Sheets can be used as the guideline. I do not wish to use consultants. Does anyone have any MODULES already developed? or is there a search engine anyone is aware of?

Donna - The issue of fall protection in the chemical industry is no different than any other industry. The answers can be found in 29CFR1926.500 Sub M ( construction) and for the general industry. You can also look into the employer policy. As to line breaking can you give me some idea of the application - hope this helps
