Chemical Safety Information and MSDSs

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) provide a ready reference for the physical and hazardous properties of laboratory and industrial chemicals. A good knowledge of chemical properties may increase the likelihood of success for an experiment and will allow work with industrial chemicals to be conducted in a safer manner. Review the MSDS before starting work with a new chemical.

Laboratory Chemical MSDS from Manufacturer/Distributor Sites

The following links provide access to MSDS’s for primarily laboratory chemicals provided directly from supplier sites. The most up to date MSDS information should be available from these supplier sites. Review the MSDS before starting work with a new chemical. Some sites have specific access procedures for viewing MSDS and may require using their on-line catalog to select the MSDS for a particular chemical.

Non-laboratory Chemical MSDS from Manufacturer/Distributor Sites

The following links provide access to MSDS’s for chemicals provided directly from supplier sites. The most up to date MSDS information should be available from these supplier sites. Review the MSDS before starting work with a new chemical. Some sites have specific access procedures for viewing MSDS and may require using their on-line catalog to select the MSDS for a particular chemical.

The following MSDS are produced for personnel working in the life sciences as quick safety reference material relating to infectious micro-organisms

Non-MSDS Chemical-Specific Safety Information

The following links provide access to useful chemical safety information that does not meet the specific requirements to be called an MSDS. The information available through this link may contain outdated information. The most up to date MSDS information should be available from product manufacturer/supplier sites. Review the MSDS before starting work with a new chemical.

Pesticide Label, MSDS and Safety Information

The following links provide access to safety information for pesticides. Some documents available through this link may contain outdated information. The most up to date chemical safety information should be available from the product manufacturer/supplier sites. Review the label and safety information before starting work with a new pesticide.

Chemical Carcinogen Information

The following links provide a ready reference known and suspected carcinogenic materials. A good knowledge of chemical properties may increase the likelihood of success for an experiment and will allow work with laboratory and industrial chemicals to be conducted in a safer manner
