  EPA's list of chemicals monitored by major programs ironically even though they are endorsed by the EPA these MSDSs (which are superb in quality) don't meet OSHA requirements because they don't name a specific manufacturer. On the other hand, if you want to prepare an MSDS just take this data and add your organization's name and phone number and you're in business.

We strive to keep the pages up-to-date, and this is done on a continuing basis, all pages being reviewed at least once a month. As part of this ongoing procedure, the existence of all the WWW sites that the pages reference is checked on a monthly basis. Despite these efforts, you will sometimes find that clicking on a link to another World Wide Web site results in an error message. This might mean that the site has moved since we last checked it. It can also mean that there is a temporary telecommunications problem - it is therefore always worth making a second attempt.


This site is for educational purpose only. Anyone, who has objection on any link being included in this POSH homepage, is welcome to bring the matter up for the attention of the Webmaster so that the link in question can be removed as soon as possible.
