Abstract:
This review reports an evaluation of 50 Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and 15 labels for products containing Engineered Nanomaterials (ENM). The evaluation considers how information on current ENM MSDS and labels reflects the state-of knowledge in regard to the hazards, risks and controls. The report provides an assessment of the relevance, accuracy and context of the information presented on the evaluated MSDS and labels for the protection of health and safety in the workplace. In addition the evaluations consider how the ENM MSDS and labels comply with the Australian National Codes of Practice for MSDS & Labelling [NOHSC:2011(2003)] and [NOHSC:2012(1994)] respectively.
