Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is designed to provide both
workers and emergency personnel with the proper procedures
for handling or working with a particular substance.
The MSDS is produced by the manufacturer of the chemical,
and includes information such as physical data (melting
point, boiling point, flash point etc.), toxicity, health
effects, first aid, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective
equipment, and spill/leak procedures. These are of particular
use if a spill or other accident occurs.
Hazardous Substance Fact
Substance Fact Sheets (HSFS) are reference documents
prepared by the State of New Jersey that contain information
on health hazards, exposure limits, personal protective
equipment, proper handling, first aid, and emergency
procedures for fires and spills for a particular chemical.
HSFS are available both in English and in Spanish.
The library of HSFS is available at the NJ Department
of Health and Senior Services website.
