provide a copy to any employee of the work area upon 
request,  and  must  offer  a  copy  to  any  employee  newly

Material Safety Data Sheet/Safety Data Sheet:
The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)/Safety Data Sheet

to employees without the intervention or permission of 
management  or  supervisors,  and  any  employee  may 
obtain  and  examine  an  MSDS/SDS  for    any  hazardous  
substance  in  the  workplace.  If  an  employee’s  request  
to obtain a copy of an MSDS/SDS is made to the employer  in writing and, after five working days from the date the 
request is made, the  employer fails to furnish the employee 
with an MSDS/SDS in the employer’s possession or fails 
to  provide  the  employee  with  proof  of  the  employer’s 
effort  to  obtain  the  requested  MSDS/SDS  from  the 
manufacturer, importer, supplier or distributor and from 
the  Department  of  Labor  &  Industry,  the  requesting 
employee may refuse to work with the substance.

EHSF has been completed by a public sector employer or a 
private sector employer not covered by the OSHA Hazard 
Communication  Standard,  a  copy  must  be  provided  to   
any employee upon request.

Employers  must  ensure  that  each  label,  sign,  placard  or   
other  operating  instruction  is  prominently  affixed  and 
displayed on the container or port of a pipeline system so 
that employees can easily identify the contents.

Public sector employers and private sector employers not 
covered by the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard

Health Administration (under 30 CFR 70.210 and 71.210).

Know  Act,  that  employee  has  180  days  from  the  date
