• Title: Hazard Communication, Extension of Scope


On August 24, 1987, OSHA revised its Hazard Communication Standard
(HCS) (52:31852) to expand the scope of the industries covered by
the rule from the manufacturing section to all industries where
employees are exposed to hazardous chemicals. The revised rule
required the non- manufactoring sector of industry to be in full
compliance with its provisions May 23, 1988. The U.S. Court Appeals
for the Third Circuit, however, has stayed the rule with respect to
the construction industry. This document provides notice to
employers in all non-manufacturing industries other than
construction that the rule is in effect. Beginning August 1, 1988,
OSHA will check for compliance with the HCS in all programmed
inspections in covered non-manufacturing industries.
