Material Safety Data Sheet

Welcome to Environmental Health & Safety (MSDS information page. An MSDS is a written document required under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Communications Standard to identify hazardous chemicals, their health and physical hazards, exposure limits and precautions. The University maintains over 6,000 copies of MSDSs on file. EH&S keeps MSDSs up-to-date and available to our faculty, staff, and students using these materials by constantly researching and obtaining the information from the manufacturers. Through our Hazard Communication Program, EH&S has hard copies of MSDSs available at this time, however, in the near future MSDSs will be accessible on this site via the internet.

The EH&S staff is more than happy to assist you with any information needed in the day-to-day usage of chemicals and materials you might encounter on campus.
