Solvents are everywhere. They are used daily in both the home and the workplace. They are so common, you may not always realize when you are working with them, but solvents can also be dangerous, so to work safely you must understand what you are working with and how to protect yourself.
Globally Harmonized Systems (GHS)
The Globally Harmonized System was created to unify and simply all the information one needed to know about working with chemicals safely. The GHS created a standard where all workplaces must keep Safety Data Sheets for every chemical in the workplace.
Safety Data Sheets
The most important component of the Globally Harmonized System is the Safety Data Sheet. This is a standardized packet of information required for every chemical in use. All SDS contain information on where the chemical came from, how to use and store it, what its properties are, and how to handle spills and exposure. Safety Data Sheets have 16 pieces of information that will always be presented in the same order.
Personal Protective Equipment
When you work with or around chemicals you will be required to wear Personal Protective Equipment. This equipment is designed to limit your exposure to the chemical and protect you if there is an accidental spill or release. Knowing how to use PPE correctly will go a long way to keeping you safe.
