The purpose of a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is to provide readily accessible health and safety information regarding the characteristics of materials and the appropriate procedures for working with them. The MSDS will concisely inform you about the hazards of the materials you work with so that you can protect yourself and respond to emergency situations. The law mandates that employers must provide their employees with access to MSDSs and teach them to read and understand them. Training, knowledge, and understanding of the technical data on an MSDS will provide you with the skills, wisdom, and good judgement to safely deal with your occupational exposure to hazards. Before working with a product, read your MSDS and think about how you will respond to emergencies and control your day-to-day exposures to materials.
