Material Safety Data Sheets MSDS

A Material 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.

Material Safety Data Sheets include 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. Each MSDS should describe:

  • properties and uses of a substance
  • health hazard information
  • precautions for use
  • safe handling requirements

Material Safety Data Sheets are prepared and distributed by manufacturers and importers of substances. Suppliers of substances are responsible for distributing the MSDS prepared by the suppliers, importers or manufacturers.

Each MSDS must be in English, relevant to Australian conditions and conform to national standards. Information in the MSDS should be in plan language so it can be easily understood and used in all workplaces.
