What Are SDS & Why Are They Important?

Safety Data Sheets (SDS) or formerly MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) are documents required by law to be provided by manufacturers of chemicals and other construction materials. They are composed of sixteen sections of information ranging from proper handling to emergency procedures. If you want to get more information on SDS themselves you can visit the OSHA quick card.

Under OSHA regulations, employers are obligated to make sure that SDS are readily available for all workers. This basically means that for every material they work with there should be an accompanying SDS nearby. This is problematic for many companies because they work with so many different materials on a daily basis. Many companies have created huge binders to house their SDS collection or signed up for expensive dedicated apps to keep their SDS collection current and available.
