OSHA requires that Plastics Businesses keep MSDS sheets for hazardous materials on file and readily accessible to our employees for information purposes and in case of an emergency. Because of the many different materials and chemicals that plastics companies use in the plastics industry, the number of MSDS Sheets and the process to keep them up to date is very difficult and time consuming.

Are there are any best practices to meeting the  requirements of maintaining MSDS sheets for plastics comapnies?

Thanks for any comments or clues.

Lindsey, we actually have an automated system that takes all of the guess work out of managing MSDS sheets. 

Our FOUNDATION Chemical Inventory and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) Imaging and Management service provides digital images for all current and archived MSDSs. Currently used product MSDSs are verified and/or updated so you can be assured of receiving up-to-date data. Data access is available via Internet access through Cornerstone's website and secured by confidential client password. The service includes preparation of SARA Tier II reports as required and a Form R candidates list is also provided. Past year SARA documents are accessable online, and a backup CD of the MSDS images can be provided on request.

If you want to talk, give me a call:  574-457-3621 or email me at
