Material safety data sheet (MSDS)

A material safety data sheet (MSDS) is a document that provides information on the properties and handling of hazardous materials, including physical data, fire and explosion hazard data, reactivity data, toxicological information, and spill/leak procedures. MSDS is intended to be used as a reference for workers handling hazardous substances and provides information on how to protect themselves and the environment from any potential harm.
