couple of questions
I am working on our yearly chemical inventory
and making labels so we will be in compliance with the GHS labeling. I
have three questions I don’t know the answers to:
1. If I have
multiple bottles of the same chemical, from different vendors, do I need
SDS’s from each vendor? And some of my bottles are really old, the
vendors no longer exist, but the chemical is fine, so what SDS’s do I
use for those?
2. If I have a solution
of say NaOH, that I made up myself, but keep around for months, I know
it needs to have a GHS label. However, clearly a 0.10 M NaOH solution isn’t
as hazardous as the solid is, and I have bottles of 5 or 6 different concentrations,
from 0.10 M to 6.0 M, and they’d all have different hazards. The more
dilute they are, the less dangerous, and the less requirement for PPE,
so it doesn’t seem like they should have the same label, or SDS sheet.
If they don’t need to, where do I get the solution SDS’s and who’s
name, address and phone number belongs on the label? My name, because
I made the solution, or the vendor of the solid I used to make the solution?
3. Is there an inexpensive
way to make the inventory, get the right SDS’s and print the GHS labels?
Thanks, feel free to email me directly,
or to answer to the list serve.
