Material safety data sheet

    

The document provides an explanation of the basic terminology and definitions contained in Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).  MSDS is an important source of information on physical and chemical properties of a chemical that might be released during an accident, and it is essential that these are clearly understood by the personnel handling chemicals. 

MSDS regularly contain information on the biological and hazardous properties presented by the chemical in question and the preventive measures to be taken when the chemical is spilled.
