Please let me start to wish Monna Happy Birthday!!!!
My concern is the following. We run a Chemistry Outreach program to local high schools.We provide some different types of equipment and small quantities of chemical solutions to these sites. I was questioned today by an individual that came from industry and now is working in academia. The concern was that the SDS should reflect not only the chemical but the form it is in. For example, I prepared a 0.1M Magnesium Sulfate solution. I usually provide an SDS of Magnesium sulfate heptahydrate solid and not of the solution I prepared. Is that wrong? I researched OSHA and did not see anything in the language? Is there anything in the new GHS system? I could not find anything. I appreciate everyone's help and input.
