OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (1910.1200) that requires employers maintain a Safety Data Sheet or SDS for chemicals present in the workplace. A SDS sheet helps an employer provide valuable information to employees including the hazards associated with the chemical, help on the selection of proper personal protective equipment and important first aid information. An employer must make the SDS sheet readily available to employees during their normal work shift. Employers must maintain these SDS Sheets for 30 years after the chemical was last used in the workplace.
Managing Safety Data Sheets (or SDS’s) can be a time-consuming and frustrating process for most employers. EMC offers web-based solution for helping manage and maintain SDS sheets. With EMC’s proprietary SDS Manager, clients will have access to a simple-to-use database designed specifically for the client.
It’s time to throw out the old binders of out-dated MSDS sheets and upgrade to SDS’s just a click away.
