OMB Extends Review of OSHA Globally Harmonized System Rule

The Office of Management & Budget (OMB) has extended its review of the final rule on hazard communication requirements in the workplace, which had been expected to be completed in January 2012. In 2011, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration submitted its final rule which would revise labeling and material safety data sheet requirements to align with the "globally harmonized system" (or GHS) used in many other countries. This final rule must be reviewed and approved by OMB prior to being published in the Federal Register.
