    • W hat T he !@#$ %^&* Is A MSDS? How to Read and Interpret a Material Safety Data Sheet!
    • •Objective  to concisely inform you about the hazards of materials you work with so that you can protect yourself and respond to an emergency  acts as a “crystal ball” - if you study it, you will see the future
    • •Purpose  the material’s physical properties or fastacting health effects that make it dangerous to handle  the level of protective gear you need  the first aid treatment to be provided when you are exposed to a hazard  the preplanning needed for safely handling spills, fires, and day-to-day operations
    • •A Material is Considered Hazardous If--  specifically listed in the law, 29CFR Part 1910, Subpart Z, Toxic and Hazardous Substances (the Z list)  assigned a Threshold Limit Value (TLV) by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, Inc (ACGIH)
    •  determined to be cancer causing, corrosive, toxic, an irritant, a sensitizer, or has damaging effects on specific body organs
    • •The MSDS Format  must be in English  have a heading  cover 16 different informational categories
    • •Heading  name and address of the manufacturer  telephone numbers  transportation emergency number  nontransportation information and emergency numbers
    • •Categories of Information 1. Chemical Production Information  product name  product code  chemical family  chemical name  synonyms  formula
    • Chemical Product Information
    • Categories 2. Composition/Information on Ingredients      ingredient name CAS number exposure limits concentration (%) names of hazardous ingredients
    • Composition/Informatio n on Ingredients
    • Categories 3. Hazards Identification         emergency overview,i.e.,Danger! Toxic potential health effects routes of entry human effects & symptoms of overexposure acute effects of overexposure chronic effects of overexposure carcinogenicity medical conditions aggravated by exposure
    • Hazards Identification
    • Categories 4. First Aid Measures      first aid for eyes first aid for skin first aid for inhalation first aid for ingestion note to physician
    • First Aid Measures
    • Categories 5. Fire Fighting Measures   flash point flammable limits  upper explosive limit (UEL)(%)  lower explosive limit (LEL)(%)  extinguishing media  special fire fighting procedures
    • Fire Fighting Measures
    • Categories 6. Accidental Release Measures  spill or leak procedures
    • Categories 7. Handling and Storage     storage temperature (min/max) shelf life special sensitivity handling/storage precautions
    • Handling and Storage
    • Categories 8. Personal Protection       eye protection requirements skin protection requirements ventilation requirements respirator requirements medical surveillance additional protective measures
    • PPE
    • PPE
    • Categories 9. Physical and Chemical Properties         physical form color odor odor threshold molecular weight boiling point melting/freezing point solubility in water
    •      specific gravity bulk density % volatile by volume vapor pressure vapor density
    • Physical and Chemical Properties
    • Categories 10. Stability and Reactivity      stability hazardous polymerization incompatibilities instability conditions decomposition products
    • Stability and Reactivity
    • Categories 11. Toxicological Information  Acute Toxicity  oral LD50  dermal LD50  inhalation LC50  eye effects  skin effects  sensitization  Subchronic Toxicity  Chronic Toxicity
    •      Carcinogenicity Mutagenicity Developmental Toxicity Reproduction Neurotoxicity
    • Toxicological Information
    • Categories 12. Ecological Information
    • 13. Disposal Information
    • Categories 14. Transportation Information     technical shipping name freight class package product label DOT (Domestic Surface)  proper shipping name  UN/UA number  packing group  DOT product RQ lbs. (kgs)  hazard label(s)
    •  hazard placard(s)  IMO / IMDG Code (Ocean)  proper shipping name  hazard class division number  UN number  packing group  hazard(s)  hazard placard(s)  ICAO / IATA (Air)  proper shipping name
    •  hazard class division number  UN number  subsidiary risk  packing group  hazard label(s)  radioactivity  passenger air - max. qty  passenger packing instructions  cargo air - max. qty  cargo passenger packing instructions
    • Categories 15. Regulatory Information    OSHA status TSCA status CERLA Reportable Quantity  SARA Title III    Section 302 Extremely Hazardous Substances Section 311/312 Hazard Categories Section313  RCRA Status
    • Regulatory Information
    • Categories 16. Other Information         NFPA 704M Ratings Reason for Issue Prepared by: Approved by: Title: Approval Date: Supersedes Date MSDA number
    • Other Information
    • Disclaimers  no warranties, expressed or implied
    • MSDS  is an OSHA document  not an EPA document  not part of the labeling unless received at the time of purchase
    • READ THE LABEL! Label! Read The
    • UNDERSTAND THE LABEL
    • FOLLOW THE LABEL
    • Their Legacy is the Land. May they Find it as Beautiful and as Bountiful as their Forbearers Did
