Do You keep SDS's on your truck?

Straight from OSHA: “Employers must ensure that the SDSs are readily accessible to employees for all hazardous chemicals in their workplace. This may be done in many ways. For example, employers may keep the SDSs in a binder or on computers as long as the employees have immediate access to the information without leaving their work area when needed and a back-up is available for rapid access to the SDS in the case of a power outage or other emergency. Furthermore, employers may want to designate a person(s) responsible for obtaining and maintaining the SDSs. If the employer does not have an SDS, the employer or designated person(s) should contact the manufacturer to obtain one.”

Here's what that means. Keep SDS for everything on your truck! Sodium Hypochlorite, Surfactants, Acids, Sealers, even Dawn Dish Soap! There should be no barrier to access!

An easy way to find these is to pull up your favorite search engine and type: "Chemical Name" SDS. It's really that easy! If you don't have a physical folder, save the sheet as a pdf to the files on your phone.

Here's the Important Info to look for on them:

1) "Hazard Identification and First Aid Measures" How to Handle Exposures/Spills
2) "Composition" What's in it? Will help determine how it will react with other chemicals
3) "Physical and Chemical Properties" Here is where you can find the pH (Very important when using SH)
