Safety Infractions in the SMFL
From Section 1.9 of the SMFL Standard Operating Procedure
Any serious safety violation may result in immediate loss of privileges and lab access. This is at the discretion of the SMFL management.
Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Hazard Communication
Starting in 2015, the SMFL has moved to using the GHS for communicating chemical hazards.
- MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) will now be referred to as SDS (Safety Data Sheets).
As the GHS labels must contain specific information, users are no longer able to make their own chemical labels as was the case with the previous system.
All chemical labels are to be provided by the SMFL
