it may be most useful to individually review each one in the workplace. However, where there are many chemicals, and the chemicals change frequently, they whispered to her you can’t withstand the storm dragonfly and cat retro poster it would be more appropriate to train workers regarding all types of hazards, by categories, rather than addressing each individual substance. The chemical – specific information will always be available to the workers on the labels and the data sheets. The second issue with regard to the quality of the MSDSs has to do with the presentation of the information. MSDSs now serve a multitude of purposes, being directed to employees as well as to health professionals and the community. In some cases, the language is too technical to properly communicate the necessary information.
The format of the MSDSs often “buries” the information that is of most concern to workers . A number of other comments were received regarding MSDSs. One commenter noted that the MSDS requirements are not sufficient to protect producers against product liability (Ex. 11-7). As far as OSHA is concerned, this is irrelevant to the rulemaking. The purpose of the HCS is to provide appropriate information to employees and employers. If producers want to provide additional data to satisfy product liability concerns, that’s their prerogative. As discussed previously, OSHA recognizes that there are burdens associated with complying with the rule (e.g., Ex. ). However, these burdens are necessary to protect employees, and are ultimately borne by the downstream users of the chemicals as the costs will be reflected in the costs of the products. The automatic provision of the MSDSs is far less burdensome than the alternative “on request” system suggested by some of the commenters (see Ex. 71-70).
