    Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are provided by manufacturers/suppliers for hazardous chemicals.  SDS must be readily available for all chemicals used in the laboratory and needs to provide the employees at their request.

    To obtain a SDS for a chemical, EH&S recommends personnel utilize the EH&S web site .  Copies of SDS for any chemical are available by calling EH&S (275-3241) or by written request.  LLE has made SDSs available for their staff at

    Because Safety Data Sheets are frequently updated, personnel can obtain the most recent edition of the SDS by using the web and accessing the chemical manufacturer/supplier.  In the event of an emergency (spill or exposure) during normal business hours, EH&S can be contacted by calling 275-3241 to obtain a chemical’s SDS. After hours EH&S can be contacted through Public Safety at x13.

    Starting in 2015, the Laboratory Safety Unit will begin collecting SDS information in Chematix. This information will be available at

    It is strongly recommended that all labs have hard (paper) copies of the higher hazard (acutely toxic, mutagenic, teratogenic, carcinogenic, reproductive hazards) chemicals in their labs.  In case of an incident or spill, the SDS is readily available and can be provided to the responders (Spill Team, Fire Department, Emergency Department, UHS or SOEM.
