Spill Response Info

Safety Data Sheets (SDS) Links

General SDS Information:

  • What is an SDS? 
    • SDS stands for Safety Data Sheets.  As of 2012 the United states has adopted the SDS sheets to replace the traditional MSDS sheets. The sheets are very similar except Safety Data Sheets conform with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System.(GHS).  SDS sheets informs a person of the hazards of the chemical, how to obtain information on the chemical, and what to do in the event of a spill or accident. 
    • Manufacturers are required to provide SDS sheets for the chemicals they sell, and you can find and download SDS sheets on manufacturer websites
