What are Material Safety Data Sheets?
Material Safety Data Sheets are documents that contain details on the composition, safety, handling,
storage,disposal and transport of a material, and other regulatory information. They are intended to provide
guidance on handling or working with a product in a safe manner. In the UK they are routinely used in performing
risk assessments for chemicals or other products used in a working environment, in compliance with COSSH
(Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) regulations.
