Mobile worksites. Under the revised final rule, OSHA included what it termed a mobile worksite provision which permitted employers of employees who travel between workplaces john coltrane blue train watercolor retro poster during a work shift to maintain MSDSs at the primary workplace as long as the information is available to employees immediately in the event of an emergency (paragraph ). Such employees would also have access to the MSDSs at the primary workplace prior to departing for the other sites, and when they return to the primary workplace. This appeared to OSHA to be a reasonable accommodation for such a work operation, but one which would still provide employees with immediate access to necessary information in an emergency and daily access to all information as a reference source.
Mixtures. OSHA made one minor correction to the mixture provisions in the NPRM. Paragraph indicates that hazardous chemical components of a mixture in concentrations less than one percent (or in the case of carcinogens, less than 0.1 percent) are covered by the HCS if they can be released in concentrations which may exceed an OSHA exposure limit or ACGIH Threshold Limit Value, or could present a health “hazard” to employees in the concentrations released. OSHA incorrectly used the term “hazard” in this provision. A hazard is an inherent property of the chemical, and would exist no matter what quantity was present. OSHA intended to refer to the presence of a health risk to employees exposed to the chemical. The risk is a function of the inherent hazard and the amount of exposure. Therefore, in accordance with these scientific principles, OSHA corrected paragraph to state that such concentrations of hazardous
