In safety news:

OSHA issued a reminder that, starting June 1st, chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors and employers were required to provide a common approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets going forward. Chemical manufacturers and importers must provide a label that includes a signal word, pictogram, hazard statement, and precautionary statement for each hazard class and category. Beginning in December, distributors may only ship containers labeled by the chemical manufacturer or importer if the labels meet these requirements.
