At last! A way to get your Materials Safety Data Sheets written – accurately and quickly!
Why must you provide MSDS documentation for the chemicals you use and sell?
In the United States, your Arizona company is required by OSHA to have a MSDS for each “potentially hazardous” chemical your employees handle. And if you manufacture or sell chemical products, you will need to provide your clients with MSDS sheets for their own use.
Chemical manufacturers and importers shall obtain or develop a material safety data sheet for each hazardous chemical they produce or import.
Employers shall have a material safety data sheet in the workplace for each hazardous chemical which they use.
~OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, Subpart Z, 29 CFR 1910.1200
Many countries already require GHS compliance –and now in the United States, OSHA is proposing rule changes to mandate GHS.
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (also known as “the purple book”) is a system for standardizing the classification and labeling of chemicals. This system is a logical and comprehensive approach to:
- Defining hazards of chemicals
- Creating classification processes
- Communicating hazard and protective measures information
Greg Fisher, President of Aegis Environmental Strategies has been authoring GHS-compliant MSDSs for over two years. His clients who sell internationally rely on Greg to make sure their MSDS documentation meets the GHS standards – so that they are free to conduct business without delays or impediments.
Countries that require GHS compliance are the countries of the European Union, Korea, Japan, and New Zealand.
