The Occupational Health and Safety Administration requires manufacturers, distributors, and importers of hazardous chemicals to provide Safety Data Sheets (SDS), also known as Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), to the users of their products. An SDS includes information on the product's ingredients and properties; physical, health, and environmental hazards; first aid and spill control measures; and ways users can protect themselves from chemical exposure.
To make SDS readily available, the College maintains an online library of SDS for the products that we purchase. At present, the online system includes SDS for all areas except Cole Science Center. SDS for Cole are available on Cole's chemical inventory system and in paper copy at the north end of the second floor.
To access the SDS library, go to the Employees menu on TheHub.
If you are unable to find an SDS in the system, please use the "Alternative Options" section to Request a Safety Data Sheet or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you receive paper copies of SDS when you receive chemicals, please send them to environmental health and safety so we can add them to our library or make sure we have the most current version in the library.
