This format allows users to quickly locate the information they need and promotes safety in the workplace.

While economic factors can certainly be affected by hazards, they are not considered a distinct category of hazards themselves.

Signal words such as "Danger" or "Warning" are used to alert individuals to the potential risks and encourage them to take appropriate precautions. These words help to ensure that individuals are aware of the potential hazards and can make informed decisions regarding their safety.
