Following up on a conversation from last week:

Neal Langerman said:
>I published my observations on this many years ago (??Material Safety Data Sheets - Who Uses Them??? Chemical Health & Safety, 2,#6, 1995. - Available in the JCHAS archives) and I do not think things have changed as a result of GHS.

Thanks, Neal, for pointing out this article. I was able to retrieve it from my JCHAS archives files and have made it available on the DCHAS web site at

Neal and I are also interested in gathering your responses to this survey in 2018 to get a sense of how the Hazard Communication scene has changed over those 23 years. For this reason, we have posted the survey at

Please take a moment to go there to answer the eleven questions from 1995 and share thoughts about how this survey might be updated to provide useful information in assessing ways to improve chemical hazard communication programs in general.

Thanks for your contribution to this conversation!
