Using Appropriate Safety Procedures: MSDS

This lesson provides an in depth discussion on the tools, chemicals, machinery and equipment we encounter in the workplace on a daily basis, the hazards they present, and how we can properly accommodate those hazards are we perform our professional duties. MSDS stands for Material Safety Data Sheet which is a form that provides information on handle equipment and materials in the workplace in terms of how we should be handling them, how to properly store, dispose, recycle and secure them, what we should do for accidents and emergencies such as spills, ingestion, etc. MSDS is found on the OEM website, sometimes on the object itself depending on what it is and how it’s used.  They are federally regulated and include items such as the following:
  • Safety procedures
  • Disposal procedures
  • Warning and safety information (such as voltage)
Other environment safety concerns include temperature regulation and controls for equipment.  Humidity is another critical factor because humidity can destroy or disrupt components, printer toner or computing devices if not carefully monitored and is too high.  Conversely there can be an opportunity to create static electricity if too low, causing for example electrostatic discharge.
