How to distinguish dangerous goods labels?

Every hazardous material is assigned to one of nine hazard classes as defined in 49 CFR 172.101 and 173. The nine hazard classes are as follows:


               

Class 1: Explosives.                

Class 2: Gases.                

Class 3: Flammable and Combustible Liquids.     

Class 4: Flammable Solids.                

Class 5: Oxidizing Substances, Organic              

              Peroxides.                

Class 6: Toxic Substances and Infectious            

              Substances.                

Class 7: Radioactive Materials.                

Class 8: Corrosives.                

Class 9: Miscellaneous Hazardous Materials.                

           



What is a MSDS?

It is actually the abbreviation of "Material Safety Data Sheet".

A material safety data sheet is a technical document which provides detailed and comprehensive information on a controlled product related to: 

► Health effects of exposure to the product

► Hazard evaluation related to the product’s handling, storage or use

► Measure to protect workers at risk of exposure

► Emergency procedures.

The data sheet may be written, printed or otherwise expressed, and must meet the availability, design and content requirements of WHMIS legislation. The legislation provides for flexibility of design and wording but requires that a minimum number of categories of information be completed and that all hazardous ingredients meeting certain criteria be listed subject to exemptions granted under the Hazardous Materials Information Review Act.

The Purpose of the Data Sheet

The data sheet is the second element of the WHMIS information delivery system and is intended to supplement the alert information provided on labels. The third element of the system is the education of employees in hazard information on controlled products, including instruction in the content and significance of information on the MSDS.

Countries in the world, whether domestic or international, must basically provide product descriptive legal documents.

Due the legal documents of chemical management and trade are different in each country and even in each state in the United States, and some of them are changed every month, if the MSDS provided is incorrect or the information is incomplete, it will face legal liability.

What does the UN number stand for?

UN numbers or UN IDs are four-digit numbers that identify dangerous goods, hazardous substances and articles (such as explosives, flammable liquids, toxic substances, etc.) in the framework of international transport. They are assigned by the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods.

There are more than 2,000 entries in the UN Dangerous Goods List. Each entry consists of 11 columns and each column includes very useful info. Contains the UN Number assigned by the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods.

The UN Dangerous Goods List lists the proper shipping names and UN numbers of dangerous goods most commonly transported. The picture below is a portion of the Dangerous Goods list in the UN Model Regulations.
