MSDS/Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are now called Safety Data Sheets or SDS according to the Federal Hazard Communication Standard. To learn more about the name change and the Federal Hazard Communication Standard (29CFR1910.1200) visit the OSHA website.
Federal law requires U.S. employers have Safety Data Sheets, or SDS, in the workplace for the specific chemicals they use. The purpose of an SDS is to provide employees and emergency workers with detailed safety information and proper handling instructions.
OSHA also requires secondary container labels to identify the chemical and appropriate hazard warnings when chemicals are diluted or transferred into a different container. Preprinted labels for your secondary containers are available free of charge.
Two Ways to Find an SDS/MSDS:
You will need the product name or HD Supply part number (found on your invoice or packing list).
