OSHA HAZARD COMMUNICATION
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are required for hazardous chemicals under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard 29 CFR 1910.1200. Engineering 2 Production, Inc. has determined that its products are "articles", as defined by this standard, and therefore do not require material safety data sheets. OSHA defines "articles" under 29 CFR 1910.1200 (c)
"Articles" are exempted from the regulations of 29 CFR 1910.1200(b)(5)(iv).
Forged steel fittings and valve products are not in themselves hazardous substances. However, burning, welding, grinding, sawing, shot blasting and machining may generate dust particles or fumes that if allowed, may accumulate in excess of the OSHA recommended Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) and may present a hazard. All operations of this nature should be performed in well-ventilated areas with adequate protection.
Reference the fitting ASTM material grade for specific elements content, then reference the attached listing of elements for additional information.
All steel products are alloys, which consist primarily of iron (generally >95%). However, other elements, which are either added intentionally or present as contaminants or residuals, may also occur in these products at trace or low concentrations. These elements may include the following:
