    includes
  • Product Identity
  • Reactivity Hazards
  • Hazardous Ingredients
  • Spill Clean-Up

14
Health and Safety Standards Contd
  • (Continued)
  • Physical/Chemical Properties
  • Protective Equipment
  • Fire and Explosion Hazards
  • Special Precautions
  • Health Hazards

OSHAS 18001Occupational Health Safety
  • The requirements, implications benefits of OHSA
    management system.
  • The interrelationship with ISO9000 and ISO14000
