Owens Realty Services is pleased to announce that it is now 100% compliant with the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, or HCS, which was recently aligned with the Globally Harmonization System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, or GHS. The GHS provides a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and hazard information on Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and labels.  OSHA required all employers to transition from using Material Safety Data Sheets, or MSDS, to the new SDS, by June 1, 2016.

The Owens Realty Services Safety Department spearheaded the transition since it began in 2013.  All locations managed and maintained by Owens Realty Services now have the latest SDS accessible to employees.  The Safety Department also conducts intensive safety training for new employees, and ongoing annual training for all employees.


Owens Realty Services keeps a keen eye on the safety of employees, tenants, and guests of the buildings it maintains.  We pride ourselves on being a leader in safety programs to minimize on-the-job acdents and hazards.
