ANSI is the key organization behind U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, helping to strengthen the U.S. economy as well as the global economy through assuring the safety and health of consumers, as well as the protection for the environment. Even though the ANSI standard originated and was prepared in the U.S., this Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS, MSDS sheets, MSDS data sheets, MSDS safety sheets, Material Data Sheet for chemicals) standard is used all around the world. The ANSI standard includes the following Material Data Safety Sheets information on how to: determine hazards of materials, complete each section of an MSDS data sheet or safety sheet, collect information, and organize and present the information in a standard MSDS form.
MSDS Authoring Services complies with all ANSI-mandated regulations and MSDS standards by creating chemical MSDS products that accurately reflect safety and efficiency.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) – OSHA is part of the United States Department of Labor. Most employees in the U.S. are under the jurisdiction of OSHA, unless they work for state and local governments. However, employees working for state and local governments are covered by OSHA Act protections if they work in states which have an OSHA-approved state program. Both employers and employees are protected by OSHA and have differing responsibilities and coverage.
Employers are responsible for providing a safe workplace to all employees, whether they are in the chemical distribution, chemicals, process manufacturing, healthcare, power utilities, retail, consumer products, aerospace and defense, technology, petrochemicals, food ingredients and food contact, flavor and fragrances, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, or pesticides industries. All OSHA safety and health standards must be followed regardless of employer. Also, employers are required to find and correct safety and health problems. This would include keeping all Material Data Safety Sheets current and up-to-date. To learn more about MSDS updating per MSDS standards, click here.
Due to many industries working with chemical safety hazards, chemicals hazards, chemicals in the workplace, and hazardous chemicals or environments, OSHA requires employers to do everything possible to mandate changes in actual conditions instead of only relying on personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks, suits, special clothing, and gloves. Common ways to minimize risks would include changing chemicals to safer ones, enclosing processes to trap harmful fumes, or using effective ventilation systems to clean the air.
For employees working under potentially hazardous conditions, OSHA and other government agencies are working hard to avoid unsafe or unhealthy working conditions in the workplace. OSHA rules and requirements are for the protection of workers in potentially hazardous workplaces. These standards set forth by OSHA commonly refer to requirements about: amount of hazardous chemicals workers can be exposed to, require the use of certain safe practices and equipment, and require employers to monitor hazards and keep records of workplace injuries and illnesses, provide fall protection, prevent trenching cave ins, prevent infectious diseases, assure that workers safely enter confined spaces, prevent exposure to harmful substances like asbestos, put guards on machines, provide respirators or other safety equipment, and provide training for certain dangerous jobs.
OSHA standards are a key part of Material Safety Data Sheet writing due to the hazards that chemicals and other products pose to employers, employees, and emergency workers. Potentially hazardous materials must be recorded and have a Material Data Safety Sheet that is routinely updated.

Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) - The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is Canada’s national hazard communication standard. By adhering to international guidelines, MSDS Authoring Services aims to deliver Material Data Safety Sheets products that are long-lasting and make it easier for those who are in an international setting to better deliver quality products under applicable guidelines. The WHMIS national hazard communication standard put in place by Canada aims to label hazardous “controlled products” by requiring worker education and training programs to further encourage awareness.
European Economic Community (EEC) - The European Economic Community (EEC) strives to create a universal view on economic integration to encourage a single market with common standardized measures. By creating a uniform system, international trade will be much more efficient in product labeling and will decrease costs related to safety labeling. Whether your company is in the chemical distribution, chemicals, process manufacturing, healthcare, power utilities, retail, consumer products, aerospace and defense, technology, petrochemicals, food ingredients and food contact, flavor and fragrances, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, or pesticides industries, the EEC strives to promote common regulations and policies regarding international trade.
