Gases We Use and Distribute
Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are used by chemical manufacturers and importers to convey both the physical hazards (pH, flashpoint, flammability, etc.) and also the health hazards (carcinogenicity, teratogenicity, etc.) of their chemicals to end users.
SDSs are a critical component of the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard. This standard (29 CFR 1910.1200(g)) mandates that workers have a right to know what hazards are associated with the chemicals they use in the workplace. Both manufacturers of chemicals and employers with chemicals in their workplace must comply with this regulation.
