Material Safety Data Sheets 


Complete information related to Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and other safety issues in and around the campus can be found on the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) website at http://oehs.wayne.edu/training/right-toknow.php#General%20Information

Procurement & Strategic Sourcing is keeping a partial list of Material Safety Data Sheets it receives directly from suppliers. This list should not be considered exhausted, since the majority of such sheets are delivered with the product to the end user on campus..

A material safety data sheet (MSDS), safety data sheet (SDS),[1] or product safety data sheet (PSDS) is an important component of product stewardship and Occupational safety and health. It is intended to provide workers and emergency personnel with procedures for handling or working with that substance in a safe manner, and includes information such as physical data (melting point, boiling point, flash point, etc.), toxicity, health effects, first aid, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective equipment, and spill-handling procedures. MSDS formats can vary from source to source within a country depending on national requirements.

SDSs are a widely used system for cataloging information on chemicals, chemical compounds, and chemical mixtures. SDS information may include instructions for the safe use and potential hazards associated with a particular material or product. These data sheets can be found anywhere where chemicals are being used.

There is also a duty to properly label substances on the basis of physico-chemical, health and/or environmental risk. Labels can include hazard symbols such as the European Union standard black diagonal cross on an orange background, used to denote a harmful substance.

The following is a list of key suppliers that have Wayne State University Procurement with MSDS sheets. This list is by no means all enclusive of the University, but is simply a place to store those submitted directly to Procurement.
