MSDS
Material Safety Data Sheet

Indice

Una Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) è una scheda pensata per fornire sia a tecnici che ai lavoratori, informazioni sulle procedure di lavoro in sicurezza per le sostanze chimiche. Una MSDS contiene informazioni sui dati fisici (punto di fusione, di ebollizione etc.), sulle tossicità, sugli effetti per la salute, il pronto soccorso, la reattività, la modalità di stoccaggio, di smaltimento, i mezzi di protezione e le procedure per l'emergenza.


Dove è possibile trovare le MSDS?

Ci sono diversi posti in cui è possibile cercare:

1) Ogni posto di lavoro dovrebbe avere un repertorio di MSDS per le sostanze chimiche in uso.
2) La maggior parte delle Università e delle grandi aziende hanno raccolte di MSDS
3) Si possono richiedere al produttore.
4) Libri come Merck Index non contengono MSDS ma possono dare informazioni utili sulla tossicità, sulle proprietà fisiche ed incompatibilità chimiche.
5) Internet: elenchiamo di seguito 75 link dove possono essere trovate numerose MSDS.
