Safety Data Sheets

UC Merced students and staff members should always review a new chemical's safety data sheet (SDS) before beginning to work with it.

You can access SDSs and other chemical hazard information from any Internet-connected computer. To access SDSs while off campus, you will need a password from EH&S.

Use multiple sources to develop safe work procedures. Contact the Office of Environmental Health & Safety at 228-7864 if you have any questions.

Gather chemical hazard information from a variety of sources. The following links are good sources of chemical information:
