What is an MSDS?

An MSDS stands for Material Safety Data Sheet. Sometimes known as an SDS (Safety Data Sheet), it is a document that provides all the important information you need to know about the chemicals you are using.

What is included in an MSDS?

The material safety data sheet covers everything the user would need to know about the material in order to use it safely. It contains information such as:

  • A breakdown of the product and all of the chemicals it contains
  • What the product does and should be used for
  • What to do if there is a spillage or leakage of the product
  • The safety procedure should the product get into contact with anyone’s eyes or is ingested
  • How to manage any other risks associated with the product

Our material safety sheets are updated on a regular basis to ensure that they remain up to date with any new information, insights, or developments. Every product we provide comes with an MSDS. Therefore, ensuring our customers have a full understanding of the chemicals they are implementing into their business.

Why are safety data sheets important?

Here at Chemi-Kal we consider it a great responsibility to make sure our products are used in the most effective and risk-free way possible. However, all chemicals carry risks. So, it’s important that the user knows how to handle the chemicals responsibly and minimise the risks. These documents can help to protect you and your staff, should an accident with the product take place. Also they can be referred to by anyone having to deal with the incident. This is especially important if first aid measures need to be taken.

Alongside familiarising yourself with the information included on the MSDS documents, you should also ensure the sheets are accessible for anyone else who encountering the product.

The information included on an MSDS will depend on the nature of the product. Some of our simple industrial detergents may not need a complex material safety sheet. On the other hand, stronger and more hazardous detergents will require more information and safety legislation.
