Executive Summary


The most common mistake that organizations tend to make with the MSDS and the chemicals is that the inventory of chemicals in use does not correspond to the MSDS sheets in the notebook or file.
1. Consider computerizing the whole process. OSHA has accepted the presence of the MSDS sheets in the computer. With networks, you can avoid trouble by having a company-wide file available to everyone.
2. It is the manufacturer of the chemical that is responsible to get the MSDS to you. You are responsible to notice if you have it or not.
3. A major source of inspections originates from disgruntled employees anonymously calling OSHA.
