November 7, 2014: OSHA Responds To Request For Relief On SDS Mandatory Date

OSHA has responded to the request for relief on the SDS mandatory date for mixtures which is currently set for June 1, 2015. OSHA has decided not to change the effective date but did adopt a policy of mitigated enforcement in cases where a company can justify not only a good faith effort but also show a lack of ability to comply. The new policy may provide some assistance to smaller companies who are working with just a few OSHA inspectors.
