According to 1910.1200(f)(5), each container of hazardous chemicals leaving the workplace must be labeled, tagged, or marked in accordance with the labeling requirements in this standard in a way that does not conflict with the requirements of the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act and regulations issued under that Act by the Department of Transportation (DOT).
For the containers inside that outer packaging, each must be marked with a GHS-style label defined at 1910.1200(f)(1). Currently, OSHA does not regulate the outer shipping container based on a September 13, 1993 Letter of Interpretation. However, employers must follow all applicable Department of Transportation Hazardous Materials labeling requirements.
