The committee recently completed their review of thirteen modified rules in five subdivisions of Division 4/ Agriculture.
Oregon OSHA has adopted these changes related to the globally harmonized system of chemical classification and labeling (GHS) into OAR 437-004-9800, the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) for Agricultural Employers. In addition, twelve related Division 4 rules were modified to incorporate the GHS definitions and terminology.
The related rules include the Division 4 universal definitions; and standards for flammable liquids, fire prevention, pipe labeling, and the storage of hazardous chemicals.
Text of the adopted rules are available on the Oregon OSHA web site at: http://www.orosha.org/standards/adopted.html
