I would observe also that for a few substances, the records must be kept for
even longer -- 40 years in some cases, and in a couple, they must ultimately
be turned over to OSHA for even longer term retention.

Pretty much.  And I would look at the other records that are specified in
the citation as requiring retention as well.  There may also be exceptions.
Haven't looked at the reg's in a few years but if my memory serves me right,
exposure to asbestos used to have a 40 year retention timeframe.
