THE MERITS OF PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION OF GHS SAFETY DATA SHEETS.
The process of complying with GHS is a straight forward process. The practical implementation and compliance can be an involved task no matter how complex it is. If a chemical formulation is found or seen to be hazardous the GHS Safety data sheets should be prepared. It is the role of every manufacturer, dealer, importer or exporter to prepare the GHS safety data sheet in case the chemical matches cut off value for various hazard classes. For example, chemicals falling into the acute toxicity class having a concentration limit of 1% or more must have an appropriate GHS SDS. In case the product has a chemical component known as carcinogenic or has a component known to affect the reproductive system there should be a cut-off of less than 0.1 percent. The component should be standardized it will require a compliance with each of the 16 sections. Identification, composition, the first-aid measures, fire-fighting, accidental release, handling, exposure control stability among others are the sixteen sections. If a product involves one chemical, it is easy to identify the preparation of GHS SDS.
During the preparation process of the GHS SDS you have to include the minimum information as per the GHS product identifier. Not all the manufacturers are comfortable revealing the ingredients and chemical formulations that have been used to make their products. This happens to be a prerequisite which should be carried out in a way that it does not reveal the confidentiality of the product when giving the right information. For you to be able to carry this out you have to look for a professional who will do the work for you. In addition the content should be given in a language that is understood by everyone to avoid misunderstanding. All the professionals involved in preparing the data safety sheets know the consequences caused by the language use and they know how to avoid them so that the information can be clear. The language should be made clear despite the geographic location and the language usage in different countries. In case a country does not use English the language have to be translated during for the SDS to be understood. Consider hiring professionals when preparing the GHS SDS because of the language translation.
Currently, not all the countries have adopted the GHS safety data sheet. It is not a must nor compulsory for a country to follow these set of recommendations. Most of the EU countries have additional norms. In US, the GHS comes in a domain name of OSHA and EPA. Hiring professionals to prepare the GHS Safety data sheets is the safest and the surest way to ensure there is full compliance.
