After years of planning and developing new rules and requirements for safety labels for hazardous chemicals, the updated regulations have finally been announced and are expected to save money, accidents, and even lives.
The new regulations will make new labels conform better with the United Nation's international label requirements. The labels will be easier to understand, and this is estimated to potentially save 40 deaths and 500 accidents a year, as well as save companies over $475 million in training.
The new rules will not be in full effect until June 2016, and will be phased in between now and then.
