Laboratory Signage Updates

In March 2012, OSHA revised its Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) to align with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).  This update made 3 significant changes to the standard regarding label wording, pictograms, and Safety Data Sheets (for more details, read the September 2013 issue of the Lab Rat).

As a result of this update, all of Emory’s laboratory signage must also be updated.

We need your help!  A revised and more concise Lab Signage Requirements form has been uploaded to our webpage.  Complete this form to identify all applicable hazards in each lab space, and to make changes to your emergency contacts.  Remember to complete one form for each lab space.  As always, we appreciate your cooperation and support!
