A quick question, perhaps:
Am I correct that SDS's are required only by OSHA to support employer's safety programs for their employees. That is, if there is no employer-employee relationship, hazard information doesn't need to follow OSHA format requirements?
The reason I ask is that I know, for example, EPA requires MSDS's be supplied to LEPCs and emergency responders upon request. Of course, as with any EPA regulation, state and local interpretation and enforcement practices vary widely.
Thanks for any insight on this.
