OSHA-GHS to alter labeling language slightly
|Inorganic Arsenic||29 CFR 1910.1018||"Cancer Hazard"|
|Vinyl Chloride||29 CFR 1910.1017||"Cancer-Suspect Agent"|
|MDA||29 CFR 1910.1050||"May Cause Cancer"|
Always write label information simply and clearly to reduce confusion. OSHA has decided to use the words May Cause Cancer, which will become the standard wording for carcinogen safety labels and signs.
Table XIII-4. Regulated Areas in Substance-Specific Health Hazards summarizes the changes to the warning message for each substance. Employers have until June 1, 2016 to use the current sign language. Existing substance-specific label warnings may be used until June 1, 2015.
