Read the full story from Bloomberg BNA.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is preparing three guidance documents on its new hazard communication standard to help employers comply with the rule, an agency official said March 5.

Maureen Ruskin, OSHA’s top hazard communication official, said the agency is working on a guidebook on the standard tailored for small- and medium-sized companies, and another specifically on hazard classification under the rule.

In addition, OSHA’s enforcement division is developing a compliance directive on the standard, Ruskin said during a session at the GlobalChem 2014 Conference and Exhibition in Baltimore, an annual gathering organized by the American Chemistry Council and the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates.
