Performing hazard analyses are critical to safe operation in any chemically based operation or experiment. Often, engineers are approached with proposals for chemicals that have not been used in a company or research group previously. One ready reference to begin a hazard analysis is the careful review of the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for the chemical of interest. Surprisingly, the terms used in a MSDS are not fully understood. This webinar focuses on MSDS terms related to physical properties, flammability, and toxicity, explaining their definitions. Further, the webinar covers how to incorporate these data into any hazard analysis.
