A Material Safety Data Sheet is an informative document that describes a hazardous chemical substance that is found in the workplace. These sheets must be kept on the company’s site and made available to all employees. OSHA regulates both the content of the information and the presentation. Each sheet describes the potential hazards to the employee’s health, treatment procedures, and symptoms of exposure. Sheets must be clearly identified and stored in a highly visible place. One sheet must be kept for each hazardous substance found on the premises. Employers should also provide safety training to prepare employees for emergencies and demonstrate the use and availability of these sheets.
