Hubbell-RACO-TAYMAC-BELL products are exempted for MSDS requirements and the primary reason
is that fitting products are defined as “articles” within OSHA’s MSDS reporting guidelines.
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.
OSHA defines "articles" under 29 CFR 1910.1200 (c) as a "manufactured ite
Which is formed to a specific shape or design during manufacturing.
Which has end use functions(s) dependent in whole or in part upon its shape or design during end use.
Which does not release, or otherwise result in exposure to a hazardous chemical under normal
conditions of use.
"Articles" are exempted from the regulations of 29 CFR 1910.1200(b)(5)(iv).
Hubbell-RACO-TAYMAC-BELL products are considered “articles”, and do not
release any trace amounts of
hazardous chemicals in normal use. 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.
