How do I receive and maintain a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)?

Chemical manufacturers and importers must evaluate their products to determine if they are hazardous.  For those materials so designated, a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) must be sent to those who purchase the items.  In addition, the manufacturers are responsible for updating the MSDS if product information changes.  Each department or work area must maintain an MSDS for each hazardous chemical / product they use and MSDS's must be readily available to all using the materials.  Electronic systems may be used:  but, even if MSDS's are stored electronically, hard copies (paper) must be maintained.   

Please refer to Material Safety Data Sheets  for more information.
