62.1. Except in the cases provided for by regulation, no employer may allow a hazardous product to be used, handled or stored in a workplace unless the product has a label and a safety data sheet that comply with this subdivision and the regulations under it and unless a worker who is exposed or likely to be exposed to the product has received the training and information required to safely carry out the work entrusted to him.
An employer may, however, store a hazardous product that does not have such a label or safety data sheet in a workplace or allow it to be handled for storage purposes under conditions prescribed by regulation, if he takes, without delay, the steps necessary to ensure that the product has such a label and safety data sheet and if the worker is given, as soon as possible, the training and information regarding handling and storage that is included in the program required under section 62.5.
Despite sections 10 and 11, the training obligation provided for in this section does not apply to the persons described in paragraph 2 of the definition of “worker” in section 1.
