Material Safety

 

Kansai Altan operates in conformity with related laws and regulations in design, manufacturing, storage and transportation of its products. KA provides its customers with all the required information regarding safe utilization and disposal of its products.

KA defines the hazardous properties of its products and shares this information through Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) and labels, which are prepared in conformity with the laws and regulations of the countries which the products are exported to.
 

KA conducts various studies in order to inform its employees as well. KA uses over a thousand different raw materials for its productions. MSDSs of all raw materials are provided from their manufacturers and can be accessed through company intranet. KA always gives due consideration to the health, safety and environment impacts of the raw materials consumed during its operations.

 

In this context, all raw materials are coded by a system which identifies the risks related to health, flammability, reactivity and the required personal protective equipments while handling the relevant material. Raw materials are labeled according to this coding system and the employees are informed about the hazardous properties of the raw materials as well.

 

Labels on the packages and the MSDSs are prepared in the official language of the destination country and in accordance with the relevant regulations. Labels are generated in conformity with the criteria of United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).
