Those chemical manufacturers and distributors or importers need to maintain those safety data sheets of every product and these should also be aligned with the guidelines of the OSHA. Well, the deadline for which has already passed but there are some importers and manufacturers that have still to comply totally. Failure in meeting the deadline would cause penalties and there are companies as well which have already paid these fines.
Actually, the non-compliance would happen because of the upstream supplier which has not supplied the GHS SDS and also the user or the dealer has not been really diligent in checking such. Dealers and also manufacturers must first check such inventory and then tally this with the SDS that is in their possession to be able to make sure that the safety data sheets are quite updated.
It is very important to really check the inventory since this is certainly a good practice and such would help you see if there are those missing GHS safety data sheets. When they should buy formulations or chemicals, it is necessary for them to ask for and get that SDS from every supplier. Such record of the communication is actually a safety measure if the supplier won’t deliver the data sheet. One can also give that proof of communication to prove the innocence of a person and to avoid paying that fine. Those updated safety data sheets are quite important to train those workers about the safety measures and be able to implement this at the workplaces other than providing environment protection.
Also, you have to know that the SDS is one important thing in case of mixtures and substances that match the defined hazards under such GHS system. Also, OSHA has actually implemented some GHS implementations and also it is likely that those hazards are going to be redefined later on and this will necessitate the importers, dealers or the manufacturers to update the GHS safety data sheets as needed.
Also, it is quite important to note that such updated SDS would also help in the trade. The buyers and also the authorities in such country can insist on the very recent SDS document. Suppliers should provide data sheet along with the shipment or they and also the buyers may face some issues in clearing consignments. This may even have an impact on supplies in the coming years too. Those safety data sheets should be given in printed form and one may also access this through the electronic format with the online database.
It would be a good thing for the chemical manufactures, the importers and also those exporters in preparing and maintaining the safety data sheets and making electronic forms and having a translation aside from training when they would like to stay compliant now and also in the future.
