|OSHA requirements are set by statute, standards and regulations. Our interpretation letters explain these requirements and how they apply to particular circumstances, but they cannot create additional employer obligations. This letter constitutes OSHA's interpretation of the requirements discussed. Note that our enforcement guidance may be affected by changes to OSHA rules. Also, from time to time we update our guidance in response to new information. To keep apprised of such developments, you can consult OSHA's website at http://www.osha.gov.|
"(iii) This exception to requiring labels on every container of hazardous chemicals is only for solid material itself, and does not apply to hazardous chemicals used in conjunction with, or known to be present with the material and to which employees handling the items in transit may be exposed (for example, cutting fluids or pesticides in grains)."The HCS necessitates a "downstream flow of information" which means that producers of hazardous chemicals have the primary responsibility for generating and disseminating information, while the users must obtain the information and transmit it to their employees.
