Do you need an msds book?

If you have employees, you probably need an msds book. By law, you as an employer, are required to abide by OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard. The HCS was instated to provide guidelines in which an employer should follow to inform the companies’ employees of certain work related hazards.

To be more specific, hazards which may involve the handling of products that can cause an adverse condition, particularly to the employees’ health. (Although corrective actions to advert or correct adverse conditions to the environment are also covered in a material safety data sheets, or more recently, what is now called a safety data sheet.)

The Hazard Communication Standard requires that, among other things, an employer is to give access to (material) safety data sheets. Because in a SDS, which is authored by, and provided by the manufacturer of the particular product in question, is the information that is necessary for the employee to follow in order to handle the product in a safe manner, so as to avoid any undesirable condition that might become a long term health issue.

The HCS protects the employer as much as it does the employee. Providing the necessary training and protection from both short and long term health issues is not only a necessity to protect the employee’s health. But in the short term, healthy employees don’t miss work, saving money. And in the long term, health care costs are lower and the possibility of unnecessary litigation is greatly reduced when the required training, information, and protection are provided to the employee.

Some of the information that an employer must provide to the employee under the Hazard Communication Standard is in the form of (material) safety data sheets. Those safety data sheets are typically kept together and indexed in an msds book.
