I'm looking forward to more comprehensive information on these data sheets.

Comment from Catherine Brooks, (10/15/2013, 10:37 AM)

As a layperson who Googles products, I also look forward to having the common names, synonyms, pictograms, symptoms, and what to do explained in these new data sheets. They should be handled out to employees who are trusting their employers to protect them. My son had to fight to get more than one disposable face mask a day at a factory which used toxic sprays. His unusual coughing and headaches must have been merely the most blatant side effects.

These Safety Data Sheets serves as a proactive ways in curbing fatal accidents at work places. Is is therefore compulsory for every workers to familiarize themselves with the signages available.REMEMBER PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURING.

I rely heavily on the MSDS as an integral part of my job in determining the hazrads and the protection required when using controlled products. It is an extremely useful tool, but it needs to be accompanied and read in conjuction with other safety standards, thus a complete picture can emerge.
