It supersedes 1910.1200 Haz Com only, not the 1910.120 .  It is still effectivefor you

Subject: [DCHAS-L] MSDS Retention


Dear DCHAS Colleagues:

I know the topic of MSDS retention was recently discussed quite thoroughly and there was very goodinformation, but one question has been nagging me and has recently been brought up here.  The OSHA lab standard states that it supersedes, for laboratories, the requirements of all other OSHA health standards in 29 CFR part 1910, subpart Z (with a few exceptions).   This suggests that 1910.1020  (“Access to employee medical records”) does not apply for our campus labs.  So my simple question is, do others interpret the regulations to mean that the exposure records do not apply to lab settings?  Am I missing something here?  Whether it is prudent or not is another issue.

Thank you very much in advance.
