How to Read and Interpret a MSDS Training by NCSU

  1. 1. W hat T he !@#$ %^&* Is A MSDS? How to Read and Interpret a Material Safety Data Sheet!
  2. 2. •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
  3. 3. •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
  4. 4. •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)
  5. 5.  determined to be cancer causing, corrosive, toxic, an irritant, a sensitizer, or has damaging effects on specific body organs
  6. 6. •The MSDS Format  must be in English  have a heading  cover 16 different informational categories
  7. 7. •Heading  name and address of the manufacturer  telephone numbers  transportation emergency number  nontransportation information and emergency numbers
