Chemical safety in the workplace (Your Right To Know) discusses dissemination of information which must be made available regarding the identities and hazards of chemicals.
OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires the development and dissemination of such information.
Chemical manufacturers and importers are required to evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import and to prepare labels and material safety data sheets (MSDS) to convey the hazard information to their downstream customers.
