Federal OSHA regulation Title 29, Part 1910.1200 has been amended to align with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling (GHS) to ensure the provision of consistent hazard warning information to employees and physicians working with, in or around hazardous materials (i.e. gas under pressure) and chemicals (i.e. specimen preservatives, lab materials). As a result, medical setting employee and physician training and written Hazard Communications Plan modification is MANDATORY by June 1, 2016. Also, as new employees or physicians are hired after June 1, they must also receive the Hazard Communications training prior to beginning work.

MCMS has partnered with OSHA Medical Courses, LLC to offer a one-stop solution to comply with this new requirement.
