Abstract

Chemicals are widely used nowadays and the risk due to occupational exposure is considerable. In order to prevent the chemical hazard from being realized, an effective safety information management system should be provided. Good hazard communication has to be maintained between manufacturers (or suppliers) and users, and between the management and workers. Accurate information, awareness, and alertness are the three basic elements. Proper labelling and provision of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are important for the control of chemical hazards and treatment of diseases caused by chemicals. Expert advice can also be obtained from the appropriate authorities or enquiry centres.
