A GUIDE TO FREELY AVAILABLE ANDSEARCHABLE INTERNET DATABASES FOR FREELANCE, START-UP AND SMALL BUSINESS SAFETY DATA SHEET WRITERS Theodore M. Amet Regulatory Research Analyst & Safety Data Sheets Writer
PrefaceThe “Aha!” moment for writing this guide came when I started writing Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) at EasterdayFluid Technologies, LLC, a manufacturer of industrial ink and ink related products. Since chemicals/rawsubstances are used in product manufacturing, the law requires manufacturers to provide customers MaterialSafety Data Sheets. Although I was trained to draft and write Material Safety Data Sheets with MSDS authoring software(e.g. EnviroMSDS, SAP, The WERCS), those platforms were not available to me at Easterday. We usedMicrosoft Office Suite to prepare GHS compliant Safety Data Sheets (according to EU Directives and GuidanceDocuments) to accompany ink and ink related products for clients in Europe and elsewhere. Our efforts in researching guidance documents, physical, chemical and toxicological properties ofsubstances, and country specific regulatory information on the Internet (in addition to product literature fromchemical manufacturers) yielded adequate information for creating Safety Data Sheets according to EuropeanUnion regulations and standards using only Microsoft Word, rather than a specialized, and expensive, authoringprogram. We believe this guide will be invaluable to writers of Safety Data Sheets everywhere, especially those insmall companies, and those wanting to use it as a reference document when their Safety Data Sheets/MaterialSafety Data Sheets authoring system is down. With your help, we will be able to keep abreast with European Chemical Regulations and update thisguide as new regulations become available. If you know of additional links to free chemical, environmental,health, and toxicological databases on the Internet, please e-mail the link(s) to us at firstname.lastname@example.org .We will promptly add it in this guide. Please acknowledge this guide in Section 15 of your Safety Data Sheetwhenever you use it as one of your sources for information. Thank you for your participation.

Here is the link to CAMEO Chemicals:http://www.cameochemicals.noaa.gov . The fire chief in your city/town may be able to provide informationon hazardous chemicals fire fighting procedures, and personal protective equipment for fire fighters. Fire Fighting Measures : The following applies to 3-Butanone (from CAMEO Chemicals) FLASHPOINT: 26oF SPECIFC GRAVITY: 0.806 @ 68o F EXPLOSIVE LIMITS: LEL: 1.8%, UEL: 11.0%. AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: 961.0oF.5.1 Extinguishing media Suitable extinguishing media : Either allow fire to burn out under controlled conditions, or extinguish with alcohol type or all purpose type foam, or dry chemical powder. Try to cover liquid spills with appropriate foam. Use water spray to cool fire exposed surfaces. Avoid spraying water directly into storage containers due to danger of boilover. Shut off fuel to fire if possible to do so without hazard. If a spill has not ignited, use water spray to disperse the vapours. Unsuitable extinguishing media : Do not use high volume water jet.5.2 Special hazards arising from : Flammable liquid; may release vapours that form flammable the mixture mixtures when temperatures are at or above the flash point. There is a danger of explosion when container is heated or in fire. Toxic gases will form upon combustion. Vapour may may accumulate in low or confined areas or travel to a considerable distance to a source of ignition and flash back. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches. Hazardous combustion products : Smoke, fumes, oxides of carbon, irritating or toxic vapours or gases.Product Name: Fendell Cleaning Solvent Blend No. 3 Page 11 of 25Product No: FCSB No.3 Prepared Date: 06/27/2011Version: 1.00 Printing Date: 08/10/20115.3 Advice for fire-fighters Protective equipment for : Respiratory and eye protection gear is required for fire fire fighters fighting personnel. Full protective equipment (Bunker Gear) and a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) should be used for all indoor fires and any significant outdoor fires. Use portable fire extinguisher for small outdoor fires. Use of SCBA
may not be required.5.4 Additional information : Exposure to decomposition products may cause health hazards. Cool containers exposed to fire with water spray. Move unexposed containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures6.1.1 For non-emergency personnel : Protective equipment : Wear suitable personal protective equipment (e.g. clothing, gloves, safety goggles, and mask/respirator). Ensure adequate ventilation; remove all sources of ignition. Notify the appropriate authorities immediately. Emergency procedures : Eliminate ignition source. Shut off leak if safe to do so. Take all additional action necessary to prevent and remedy the adverse effects of the spill. Isolate hazard area and deny entry to unauthorized or unprotected personnel. Contain spilled liquid with sand or earth. DO NOT use combustible materials such as saw dust. Absorb spill with an inert material (e.g., sand or earth). Then place in a chemical waste container.6.1.2 For emergency responders : Respiratory and eye protection gear is required for emergency personal protective equipment responders. Full protective equipment (Bunker Gear) and a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) should be used for all indoor fires and any significant outdoor fires. Use portable fire extinguisher for small outdoor fires. Use of SCBA may not be required.6.2 Environmental precautions : Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff into soil, storm sewers and ditches which lead to natural waterways, or the immediate environment.
