Having held several director-level positions at chemical plants over the course of 38 years, I am extremely familiar with the chemical industry as it relates to process engineering, procurement, construction, and operations management. Because of this, I understand the dangers of chemicals and their safety requirements from a procedural and documentation perspective. The EPA has jurisdiction over chemical management through the Toxic Substances Control Act and the Safe Chemicals Act. At a minimum, all chemicals must have an MSDS available for review by anyone who may come in contact with the chemical. The MSDS features the state of the chemical’s physical properties, any known dangers, and ways to mitigate exposure. There are no circumstances that should allow companies to sell or expose workers to harmful toxic chemicals without the necessary and mandated practices by the appropriate regulatory authorities. At a minimum, anyone who is exposed to handling these chemicals must be warned clearly and unambiguously of their dangers and antidotes.
