Safety consists of education and testing for users of the CAMD facility in Radiation Safety, Cleanroom Training, Forklift and Crane training.
Material Safety Data Sheets(MSDS)
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that MSDSs "shall be maintained and kept in a readily accessible area". That means that MSDSs for the hazardous substances that you work with should be available and accessible to you. Any MSDSs that you receive with shipments or that you receive separately should be placed in your MSDS binder or file.
Material Safety Data Sheets should be kept and maintained because they provide necessary, helpful, and useful information on the properties of the chemical or chemical product. You should familiarize yourself with those properties, such as flammability, corrosiveness, and toxicity, as well as storage and handling information, before you work with the chemical. Also, it is vital to your personal safety that you are able to refer to that MSDS immediately in the event of an emergency such as a spill, fire, or physical contact with the chemical. So, the next time you receive an MSDS, remember that it provides important and necessary health and safety information.
