DEFINITIONS OF TERMS
A large number of abbreviations and acronyms appear on a MSDS. Some of these which are commonly used include the following:
CAS #: This is the Chemical Abstract Service Number which uniquely identifies each constituent.
EXPOSURE LIMITS IN AIR:
ACGIH - American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, a
professional association which establishes exposure limits.
TLV Threshold Limit Value - an airborne concentration of a substance which
represents conditions under which it is generally believed that nearly all
workers may be repeatedly exposed without adverse effect. The duration
must be considered, including the 8-hour Time Weighted Average (TWA),
the 15-minute Short Term Exposure Limit, and the instantaneous Ceiling
Level (C). Skin absorption effects must also be considered.
OSHA - U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
PEL - Permissible Exposure Limit - This exposure value means exactly the
same as a TLV, except that it is enforceable by OSHA.
The OSHA
Permissible Exposure Limits are based in the 1989 PELs and the June,
1993 Air Contaminants Rule (Federal Register: 58: 35338-35351 and 58:
40191). Both the current PELs and the vacated PELs are indicated. The
phrase, “Vacated 1989 PEL,” is placed next to the PEL which was vacated
by Court Order. IDLH - Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health - This
level represents a concentration from which one can escape within 30minutes without suffering escape-preventing or permanent injury. The DFG
- MAK is the Republic of Germany’s Maximum Exposure Level, similar to
the U.S. PEL. NIOSH is the National Institute of Occupational Safety and
Health, which is the research arm of the U.S. Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA). NIOSH issues exposure guidelines called
Recommended Exposure Levels (RELs). When no exposure guidelines
are established, an entry of NE is made for reference.
HAZARD RATINGS:
HAZARDOUS MATERIALS IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM: Health Hazard: 0
(minimal acute or chronic exposure hazard); 1 (slight acute or chronic
exposure hazard); 2 (moderate acute or significant chronic exposure
hazard); 3 (severe acute exposure hazard; onetime overexposure can result
in permanent injury and may be fatal); 4 (extreme acute exposure hazard;
onetime overexposure can be fatal). Flammability Hazard: 0 (minimal
hazard); 1 (materials that require substantial pre-heating before burning); 2
(combustible liquid or solids; liquids with a flash point of 38-93C [100200F]); 3 (Class IB and IC flammable liquids with flash points below 38C
[100F]); 4 (Class IA flammable liquids with flash points below 23C [73F]
and boiling points below 38C [100F]. Reactivity Hazard: 0 (normally
stable); 1 (material that can become unstable at elevated temperatures or
which can react slightly with water); 2 (materials that are unstable but do not
detonate or which can react violently with water); 3 (materials that can
detonate when initiated or which can react explosively with water); 4
(materials that can detonate at normal temperatures or pressures).
NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION: Health Hazard: 0
(material that on exposure under fire conditions would offer no hazard
beyond that of ordinary combustible materials); 1 (materials that on
exposure under fire conditions could cause irritation or minor residual
injury); 2 (materials that on intense or continued exposure under fire
conditions could cause temporary incapacitation or possible residual injury);
3 (materials that can on short exposure could cause serious temporary or
residual injury); 4 (materials that under very short exposure causes death
or major residual injury). Flammability Hazard and Reactivity Hazard: Refer
to definitions for “Hazardous Materials Identification System”.
FLAMMABILITY LIMITS IN AIR:
Much of the information related to fire and explosion is derived from the
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Flash Point - Minimum
temperature at which a liquid gives off sufficient vapors to form an ignitable
mixture with air. Autoignition Temperature: The minimum temperature
required to initiate combustion in air with no other source of ignition. LEL the lowest percent of vapor in air, by volume, that will explode or ignite in
the presence of an ignition source. UEL - the highest percent of vapor in air,
by volume, that will explode or ignite in the presence of an ignition source.
TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION:
Possible health hazards as derived from human data, animal studies, or
from the results of studies with similar compounds are presented.
Definitions of some terms used in this section are: LD50 - Lethal Dose
(solids & liquids) which kills 50% of the exposed animals; LC50 - Lethal
Concentration (gases) which kills 50% of the exposed animals; ppm
concentration expressed in parts of material per million parts of air or water;
mg/m3 concentration expressed in weight of substance per volume of air;
mg/kg quantity of material, by weight, administered to a test subject, based
on their body weight in kg. Data from several sources are used to evaluate
the cancer-causing potential of the material. The sources are: IARC - the
International Agency for Research on Cancer; NTP - the National
Toxicology Program, RTECS - the Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical
Substances, OSHA and CAL/OSHA. IARC and NTP rate chemicals on a
scale of decreasing potential to cause human cancer with rankings from 1
to 4. Subrankings (2A, 2B, etc.) are also used. Other measures of toxicity
include TDLo, the lowest dose to cause a symptom and TCLo the lowest
concentration to cause a symptom; TDo, LDLo, and LDo, or TC, TCo,
LCLo, and LCo, the lowest dose (or concentration) to cause lethal or toxic
effects. BEI - Biological Exposure Indices, represent the levels of
determinants which are most likely to be observed in specimens collected
from a healthy worker who has been exposed to chemicals to the same
extent as a worker with inhalation exposure to the TLV. Ecological
Information: EC is the effect concentration in water.
