SECTION 8: Exposure controls/personal protection

Informations are provided from COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 453/2010 of 20 May 2010 amending Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)

This section of the safety data sheet shall describe the applicable occupational exposure limits and necessary risk management measures.
Where a chemical safety report is required, the information in this section of the safety data sheet shall be consistent with the information given for the identified uses in the chemical safety report and the exposure scenarios showing control of risk from the chemical safety report set out in the annex to the safety data sheet.

8.1. Control parameters

8.1.1. Where available, the following national limit values, including the legal basis of each of them, which are currently applicable in the Member State in which the safety data sheet is being provided shall be listed for the substance or for each of the substances in the mixture. When listing occupational exposure limit values, the chemical identity as specified in Section 3 shall be used.

8.1.1.1. the national occupational exposure limit values that correspond to Community occupational exposure limit values in accordance with Directive 98/24/EC, including any notations as referred to in Article 2(1) of Commission Decision 95/320/EC ( 1 );

8.1.1.2. the national occupational exposure limit values that correspond to Community limit values in accordance with Directive 2004/37/EC, including any notations as referred to in Article 2(1) of Decision 95/320/EC;

8.1.1.3. any other national occupational exposure limit values;

8.1.1.4. the national biological limit values that correspond to Community biological limit values in accordance with Directive 98/24/EC, including any notations as referred to in Article 2(1) of Decision 95/320/EC;

8.1.1.5. any other national biological limit values.

8.1.2. Information on currently recommended monitoring procedures shall be provided at least for the most relevant substances.

8.1.3. If air contaminants are formed when using the substance or mixture as intended, applicable occupational exposure limit values and/or biological limit values for these shall also be listed.

8.1.4. Where a chemical safety report is required or a DNEL as referred to in Section 1.4 of Annex I or a PNEC as referred to in Section 3.3 of Annex I is available, the relevant DNELs and PNECs for the substance shall be given for the exposure scenarios from the chemical safety report set out in the annex to the safety data sheet.

8.1.5. Where a control banding approach is used to decide on risk management measures in relation to specific uses, sufficient detail shall be given to enable effective management of the risk. The context and limitations of the specific control banding recommendation shall be made clear.

8.2. Exposure controls
The information required in the present subsection shall be provided, unless an exposure scenario containing that information is attached to the safety data sheet.
Where the supplier has waived a test under Section 3 of Annex XI, he shall indicate the specific conditions of use relied on to justify the waiving.
Where a substance has been registered as an isolated intermediate (on-site or transported), the supplier shall indicate that this safety data sheet is consistent with the specific conditions relied on to justify the registration in accordance with Article 17 or 18.

8.2.1. Appropriate engineering controls
The description of appropriate exposure control measures shall relate to the identified use(s) of the substance or mixture as referred to in subsection 1.2. This information shall be sufficient to enable the employer to carry out an assessment of risk to the safety and health of workers arising from the presence of the substance or mixture in accordance with Articles 4 to 6 of Directive 98/24/EC as well as in accordance with Articles 3 to 5 of Directive 2004/37/EC, where appropriate.
This information shall complement that already given under Section 7.

8.2.2. Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

8.2.2.1. The information on use of personal protective equipment shall be consistent with good occupational hygiene practices and in conjunction with other control measures, including engineering controls, ventilation and isolation. Where appropriate, Section 5 shall be referred to for specific fire/chemical personal protective equipment advice.

8.2.2.2. Taking into account Council Directive 89/686/EEC ( 1 ) and referring to the appropriate CEN standards, detailed specifications shall be given on which equipment will provide adequate and suitable protection, including:

(a) E y e / f a c e p r o t e c t i o n
The type of eye/face protection equipment required shall be specified based on the hazard of the substance or mixture and potential for contact, such as safety glasses, safety goggles, face-shield.
(b) S k i n p r o t e c t i o n

(i) H a n d p r o t e c t i o n
The type of gloves to be worn when handling the substance or mixture shall be clearly specified based on the hazard of the substance or mixture and potential for contact and with regard to the amount and duration of dermal exposure, including:
— the type of material and its thickness,
— the typical or minimum breakthrough times of the glove material.
If necessary any additional hand protection measures shall be indicated.

(ii) O t h e r
If it is necessary to protect a part of the body other than the hands, the type and quality of protection equipment required shall be specified, such as gauntlets, boots, bodysuit based on the hazards associated with the substance or mixture and the potential for contact.
If necessary, any additional skin protection measures and specific hygiene measures shall be indicated.

(c) R e s p i r a t o r y p r o t e c t i o n
For gases, vapours, mist or dust, the type of protective equipment to be used shall be specified based on the hazard and potential for exposure, including air-purifying respirators, specifying the proper purifying element (cartridge or canister), the adequate particulate filters and the adequate masks, or self-contained breathing apparatus.

(d) T h e r m a l h a z a r d s
When specifying protective equipment to be worn for materials that represent a thermal hazard, special consideration shall be given to the construction of the personal protective equipment.

8.2.3. Environmental exposure controls
The information required by the employer to fulfil his commitments under Community environmental protection legislation shall be specified.
Where a chemical safety report is required, a summary of the risk management measures that adequately control exposure of the environment to the substance shall be given for the exposure scenarios set out in the annex to the safety data sheet.
