Microwave-Assisted Organic Synthesis: A Green Chemical Approach

The large-scale creation of chemical compounds to satisfy numerous societal wishes has created environmental toxins, together with pollutants from byproducts and mistaken disposal of waste. With the area dealing with adversarial results because of this toxins, eco-friendly chemistry is more and more being seen as a method to deal with this challenge.

Clearly then, the chemical manufacturers face the challenge of preparing complete MSDSs. Manufacturing employers must be sure that their workers do indeed get the message. Page 22 Since the standard is performance oriented, the format is optional rather than rigid. Different companies employ different systems. The new rule permits employers to continue to use effective systems so long as they contain the necessary information and effectively warn workers about hazardous chemicals. 1 standard to promote uniformity throughout industry.

Employees must be apprised of the hazards of the chemicals in their workplace in accordance with the employee information and training requirements of this standard. In Figure 2, a summary of an acceptable graphics system for hazard identification is shown. This is an example developed by the National Paint and Coatings Association for a system for informing workers about the seriousness of a hazard and how to protect themselves from it. The system is called Hazardous Materials Identification System (HMIS).

Hazard Communication has become an internal part of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) requirements and whatever an employer's motivation, the fact is that it is the law. Impacts of Other Agencies Other federal and state agencies have incorporated their own hazard communication standards. S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has labeling, placarding, and manifesting requirements for the shipping and transport of hazardous materials. S.
