Preventing Chemical Accidents: Understanding MSDS’s & Assessing Chemical Hazards
The process described below focuses everyone on the important information in the factsheets.
The process is as follows:
First, select a scribe for this Task.
Each of you will be assigned a small number of factsheets to read. You will then share the factsheet information with your table.
Your trainer will assign your individual factsheets this way:
Starting with the scribe and moving to the left, count out loud from 1 to 8. Keep going around the table until all numbers (factsheets) are distributed. The assigned numbers correspond to Factsheets 1 through 8 on the following pages.
Once everyone has read their assigned factsheets individually, your scribe will go around the table and ask each of you to explain to the group what you have learned. Factsheets should be explained in the order assigned (1 through 8), since the factsheets build on the previous one. In this way, we all start at the same place and with the same information.
