3 11017131/0403 Copyright ©2004 Business and Legal Reports, Inc. Right to Know You, the employee, have a right to know about the hazardous chemicals you use on the job and how to work safely with those chemicals.

4 11017131/0403 Copyright ©2004 Business and Legal Reports, Inc. HazCom and the MSDS Chemical manufacturers must determine a chemical’s hazards and provide an MSDS. Employers must make the MSDS available and train employees on the hazards of the chemical and how to protect themselves from those hazards. Employees must read the MSDS so that they can identify the hazards and understand how to work safely with the chemical.

25 11017131/0403 Copyright ©2004 Business and Legal Reports, Inc. Goals The importance of the MSDS Reading an MSDS Quiz

26 11017131/0403 Copyright ©2004 Business and Legal Reports, Inc. Summary MSDS is the foundation of chemical safety 24-hour access Symptoms of exposure and first aid Storage and handling Personal protective equipment

27 11017131/0403 Copyright ©2004 Business and Legal Reports, Inc. Quiz 1.When seeking emergency medical help for overexposure to a chemical, what should be provided to the physician? _______________________________________________ 2.A low flashpoint, such as 50 degrees F, means the chemical’s vapors are not likely to ignite at room temperature.True or False 3.Describe how you would obtain an MSDS at your company:_______________________________________ 4.Typical first-aid for someone who feels dizzy after breathing a chemical is:____________________________ 5.Chemical manufacturers that list “trade secret” as a hazardous ingredient are exempt from providing safety information on that chemical.True or False

28 11017131/0403 Copyright ©2004 Business and Legal Reports, Inc. Quiz (cont.) 6.Nausea, skin rash, headache, tightness in the chest may all be:______________________________________ 7.Before requiring the use of PPE, employers must evaluate the use of engineering controls to reduce exposure to chemical hazards.True or False 8.Why is it important for employees to know the appearance and odor of the chemicals they are using? 9.What is the importance of PEL, STEL, and TLV? 10.If the MSDS does not have the information you need, where can you obtain that information?

29 11017131/0403 Copyright ©2004 Business and Legal Reports, Inc. Quiz Answers 1.The physician should be provided with the MSDS. 2.False. A low flashpoint means the chemical is very flammable and the vapors are more likely to ignite. 3.Facility-specific: binder, computer, fax system, etc. 4.Inhalation victims should get some fresh air. 5.False. Chemical manufacturers still must discuss the hazards, safety information, and first-aid procedures for “trade secret” ingredients.
