Material Safety Data Sheets

Under the OSHA Hazard Communications Standard (29CFR 1910.1200), all personnel working with hazardous materials must have access to Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), and be trained in the safe handling of the material. MSDSs provide necessary and useful information on the properties of the hazardous material. You should familiarize yourself with those properties before you work with the material. It is vital to your safety to be able to refer to the MSDS immediately in the event of an emergency and provide a copy to emergency responders. Maintain material safety data sheets (MSDS) (on computer hard drive or have paper copies available) for all chemicals used or stored in the laboratory or clinic.
