SDSs are a widely used system for cataloging information on chemicals, chemical compounds, and chemical information may include . Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are the information sheets manufacturers supply which detail the health, safety and fire hazards of a commercial product. Although these list only the components which are hazardous, this information can be a valuable clue to decoding commercial products. MSDSs are subdivided into 10 parts.

hazardous materials are handled safely and disposed of in accordance with the regulations. 4. Other laws, such as worker and community right-to-know legislation, should be addressed as an integral part of the hazardous materials management plan because the safe handling and use of hazardous materials requires the complete.
