Communicating hazards

This paperwork saves lives.

Safety data sheets and material safety data sheets are designed to provide employees and emergency personnel with the proper procedures for handling and working with a particular substance. These documents include information that includes physical characteristics, toxicity, health effects, first aid, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective equipment and spill/leak procedures.

Maintaining these documents ensures employees have access to information on hazardous chemicals used in their work areas.

And that’s smart safety!
