Dear Ms. Davis:|
This is in response to your letter of March 18, regarding the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard. Specifically you request a definition of "distributor" and "retail distributor" as used in paragraph 29 CFR 1910.1200(g)(7).
The standard at paragraph 29 CFR 1910.1200(c) defines "distributor" as follows:
A "retail distributor" is a business which supplies hazardous chemicals to the general public, and may also supply hazardous chemicals to other employers. The distribution center that you described in your letter, which sells materials to building contractors and to the general public, therefore, is a "retail distributor" pursuant to 29 CFR 1910.1200(g)(7).
If we may be of further assistance, feel free to contact us.
Thomas J. Shepich, Director
