Employer's Guide to the Hazard Communication Rule  

Booklet: Washington State's new Hazard Communication rule became effective April 15, 2013. It is intended to improve understanding of hazard information found on product labels. The booklet includes training requirements, a Q&A about who is covered, pictograms, descriptions of hazards and everything employers need to know and do to be in compliance.

The changes are based on the International Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).
