As a general statement, such as would be found on a syllabus, this is good.
It contains the necessary elements, i.e. a statement of the risk, means of
protection and the source of additional information.  I reviewed this with
one of our corporate safety auditors as well as my immediate superior, who
has 10+ years experience with OSHA.  They agreed that this was a very good
general warning provided, of course, that the Health and Safety Plan for the
facility contained more detailed information.
