  • Chemical exposure can cause

    • Heart ailments, central nervous system damage, kidney and lung damage, sterility, cancer, burns, and rashes.

  • Chemicals also have the ability to cause

    • Fires, explosions, and other accidents

  • Employers must provide

    • Written program

    • Container labeling

    • SDS (Safety Data Sheets)

    • Training

Reference: Ibid

Safety data sheets
Safety Data Sheets

  • All SDS will contain a user friendly 16 section format

  • As of June 2015 all labels will contain a pictogram, a signal work, hazard and precautionary statements, product identifier, and supplier identification

  • What does this mean for managers:

    • All employees must be trained to read new labels and SDS sheets, by December 1, 2013.

    • All labeling and SDS communication must be updated by June 2016.

    • A great exercise for your staff is to copy numerous SDS sheets and have them find various items. Examples: Specific gravity, PH, PPE’s, manufacturer, health hazards, emergency response
