All employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces must have labels and safety data sheets for their exposed workers, and train them to handle the chemicals appropriately.
Safety Data Sheets (SDS) provide information about health effects data, workplace exposure limits, use of protective clothing when appropriate, various environmental regulatory requirements, and techniques for managing flammability.
An SDS also provides:
Information on the potential hazards, how to protect against them, and steps to take in an emergency
Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) and Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs) Handling, storage, transportation, spills, and disposal advice Regulatory information such as OSHA classification and labeling.
