folder MSDS

The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is used to communicate chemical hazard information from the manufacturer to the employee. This is the information needed to inform and train employees on the safe use of hazardous chemicals. The employer is required to have an MSDS for each hazardous chemical product they use.Employers must maintain in the workplace copies of the required material safety data sheets for each hazardous chemical, and must ensure that they are readily accessible during each work shift to employees when they are in their work area(s). (Electronic access, microfiche, and other alternatives to maintaining paper copies of the material safety data sheets are permitted as long as no barriers to immediate employee access in each workplace are created by such options.) See OSHA Regulation:
• Part Number: 1910
• Part Title: Occupational Safety and Health Standards
• Subpart: Z
• Subpart Title: Toxic and Hazardous Substances
• Standard Number: 1910.1200 App E
• Title: Guidelines for Employer Compliance (Advisory)
Where employees must travel between workplaces during a workshift (
i.e., their work is carried out at more than one geographical location), the material safety data sheets may be kept at the primary workplace facility. In this situation, the employer must ensure that employees can immediately obtain the required information in an emergency.
