29CFR - SAFETY AND HEALTH STANDARDS 1910 - INDUSTRIAL SAFETY 1200 - HAZARD COMMUNICATION GENERAL INDUSTRY REGULATION Department of Labor PARTS 1900 TO 1910 Revised as of Jan 1, 2002 29 CFR National Archives and Records Administration 29 CFR
A Document That Contains Information on the Potential Health Effects of Exposure and How to Work Safely With a Specific Chemical Product. It Contains Hazard Evaluations on the Use, Storage, Handling and Emergency Procedures Related to The Product. The MSDS Contains Much More Information Than Provided on the Label and Is Prepared by the Supplier. It Tells What the Hazards of the Product Are, How to Use the Product Safely, What to Expect If the Recommendations Are Not Followed, What to Do If Accidents Occur, and How to Recognize Symptoms of Overexposure. WHAT IS A MATERIAL DATA SAFETY SHEET: BASICS OF THE MSDS
Every Material That Has a Possible Health Hazard, Whether Short Term Or Long Term to Any Employee Must Have an Accompanying MSDS That Is Specific to Each Individual Product or Material. Both the Product Name and Supplier on the MSDS Must Match the Material in Use. WHY DO I NEED A MATERIAL DATA SAFETY SHEET: BASICS OF THE MSDS
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Has Developed a New Standard (Z400.1-1993) to Assist With the Format and Preparation of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). The Purpose of The Standard Is to Provide Information in a Consistent Manner and to Make It Easier to Find Information Regardless of the Supplier of the MSDS. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Only Requires the Elements Stated in 29CFR 1910.1200(g) But Supports the 16 Section Format Recommended by ANSI. WHAT FORMAT IS REQUIRED FOR THE MSDS: BASICS OF THE MSDS
Section 1: Chemical Product and Company Identification Section 2: Composition, Information or Ingredients Section 3: Hazard Identification Section 4: First Aid Measures Section 5: Fire-Fighting Measures Section 6: Accidental Release Measures Section 7: Handling and Storage Section 8: Exposure Controls and Personal Protection Section 9: Physical and Chemical Properties Section 10: Stability and Reactivity Section 11: Toxicological Information Section 12: Ecological Information Section 13: Disposal Considerations Section 14: Transport Information Section 15: Regulatory Information Section 16: Other Information WHAT INFORMATION IS INCLUDED IN THE MSDS: ELEMENTS OF THE MSDS
SECTIONS OF THE MSDS: ELEMENTS OF THE MSDS Section 1: Chemical Product and Company Identification Links the chemical name on the label to the MSDS. The MSDS also lists the name, address and the phone number of the company, manufacturer or distributor who provides the chemical. Section 2: Composition, Information or Ingredients Identifies all the hazardous ingredients of the material. This section may also include Permissible Exposure Limits. Section 3: Hazard Identification Discusses the health effects one may encounter when exposed to the material. Describes the appearance of the material, the potential health effects and symptoms associated with exposure, routes of entry, target organs that could be affected, and so on. Section 4: First Aid Measures Describes possible first aid procedures for each route of entry.
SECTIONS OF THE MSDS: ELEMENTS OF THE MSDS Section 5: Fire-Fighting Measures Describes information on the fire and explosive properties of the material, extinguishing mediums, and general fire-fighting instructions. Section 6: Accidental Release Measures Provides information on how to respond when a material spills, leaks or is released into the air. This information may include how to contain a spill or the types of equipment that may be needed for protection. Section 7: Handling and Storage Discusses information on handling and storage of the material. Topics that could be described are: general warnings to prevent overexposure, handling procedures, and hygiene instructions to prevent exposure. Section 8: Exposure Controls and Personal Protection Discusses engineering controls and personal protective equipment that would help reduce exposure to the material.
SECTIONS OF THE MSDS: ELEMENTS OF THE MSDS Section 9: Physical and Chemical Properties Includes information about the physical and chemical properties. Such as; appearance, odor, physical state, pH, vapor pressure, vapor density, boiling point, freezing/melting point, specific gravity and others. Section 10: Stability and Reactivity Requires that potentially hazardous chemical reactions be identified. It addresses chemical stability, conditions to avoid, incompatibility with other materials, hazardous decomposition and hazardous polymerization. Section 11: Toxicological Information Discusses data used to determine the hazards that are given in Section 3, "Hazard Identification." Section 12: Ecological Information Provides Information to help determine the environmental impact should the material ever be released into the environment.
SECTIONS OF THE MSDS: ELEMENTS OF THE MSDS Section 13: Disposal Considerations Provides important information that may be helpful in the proper disposal of the material. Can cover disposal, recycling and reclamation. Section 14: Transport Information Provides basic shipping information. The shipping information can include: the hazardous materials description, hazard class and the identification number (UN or NA numbers). Section 15: Regulatory Information Discusses information on the regulations under which the material falls. Examples include: OSHA, TSCA, CERCLA, SARA Title III, and others. Section 16: Other Information Discusses any other important information concerning the material. This information can include: hazard ratings, preparation and revisions of the MSDS, and label information.
By Law, Employers Are Required to Make MSD Sheets Available to Employees and Their Agents (Doctors, Lawyers Etc.). MSD Sheets Are Required to Placed in a Location Within the Facility That Is Convenient for Employees to Access. While You May Not Arbitrarily Remove MSD Sheets From Viewing Binders, You Can Request a Copy of Any MSDS You May Require. Remember, MDS Sheets Are for Your Protection and Information. You Are Encouraged to Read and Understand the Safety Requirements of The Chemicals Your Job Requires You to Work With. WHERE CAN I FIND AN MSDS: USING THE MSDS
Traditionally the Intended Readers of the MSDS Were Industrial Hygienists and Safety Professionals. Now the Readership Also Includes Employers, Workers, Supervisors, Nurses, Doctors, and Emergency Responders. It’s Getting Better, Now Days, To Ensure That MSDS Users Can Quickly Find the Information That They Need, the Information Is Provided in an Easy-to- read Format and Written in a Clear, Precise, Standardized and Understandable Manner. If Yours Isn’t, Try Getting an Updated MSDS. There Are Some Sections That Are Harder to Understand Than Others. If You Don’t Understand Something, Ask Your Supervisor. Also, You Can Always Contact the Manufacturer for Clarification. Remember, If You’re Having Trouble Understanding It, Others Probably Are To. WHY IS MY MSDS HARD TO UNDERSTAND: USING THE MSDS
Not Necessarily. A Lot of Health Hazard Information, for Example, Is Written in General Terms. Your Health and Safety Specialist, Occupational Health Nurse or Family Doctor Should Be Able to Help You Find More Information If Needed. The Supplier of the MSDS Can Also Be Consulted for Additional Information. IS ALL THE INFORMATION I NEED ON THE MSDS: USING THE MSDS
Always Be Familiar With the Hazards of a Product BEFORE You Start Using It. Use It To Determine Personal Protective Equipment Requirements. You Should Look at a MSDS, Match the Name of the Chemical on Your Container to the One on the MSDS, Know the Hazards, Understand Safe Handling and Storage Instructions, As Well As Understand What to Do in an Emergency. WHEN WOULD I USE AN MSDS: USING THE MSDS
MSD Sheets Look Different Because Only the Content of the MSDS Is Specified by Law. The Format Is Left up to the Supplier Who Writes the MSDS. Some Suppliers Put More Details in Than What Is Required. The Information for the Basic Categories in the MSDS As a Minimum, Must Always Be in Accordance With the Requirements Outlined in 29CFR1910.1200. The Sixteen Section Format Recommended by ANSI Is The Typical Format Used in the United States. WHY DO SOME MSDS LOOK DIFFERENT: USING THE MSDS
