OSHA’s new required update from the old Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) to the new Safety Data Sheet (SDS) format has become a ticking-clock for producers and manufacturers. The new changes have to be in place before June 1, 2015, leaving companies with less than five months to collect and convert data, change SIC codes and more. 
 
Neil Brunetz and Michael Mallen explain why companies should care about the new requirements in their article, Has OSHA's Recent Shift Created The Most Complex Regulatory Requirements In History?, published on jdsupra.com. 
 
“Bakeries, liquor stores and lumber yards (among many other industries) may now have OSHA 300 Log obligations.”
 
In the article, Brunetz and Mallen reveal that because “the U.S. government has exponentially increased compliance, recordkeeping, reporting and recording obligations for both small and large employers,” many companies who did not need to be aware about OSHA’s requirements, now have to in order to be compliant.
 
“In the past two years, the U.S. Department of Labor and OSHA have revised multiple compliance requirements affecting a myriad of businesses. This multifaceted exercise started when OSHA required employers subject to the hazard communication standard to shift to the GHS standard, forgoing the old-style MSDS safety data sheets.”
