APPENDIX N

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS

MSD are published by the manufacturers of chemicals. They give a wealth of information on the particular products. These are particularly beneficial when a product contains a mixture of ingredients. The MSDS provides you important information about the chemical substance, its hazards, and the procedures to follow to avoid injury and illness. Ensure that all personnel assigned, attached, or working around, read and fully understand the MSDS before they handle any products. The MSDS contains the following general sections. See Figure N-1.

WARNING

Commanders at all levels must cooperate in community environmental action programs and must comply with the requirements of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act as best they can. This is a Federal requirement.

  • Hazardous Ingredients/Identity Information (Name and Product). Lists the substance’s hazardous components, chemical identification, and common names. Workers exposure limits to the chemical are included.
  • Physical/Chemical Characteristics. Includes boiling points, vapor pressure, vapor density, specific gravity, melting point, evaporation rate, water solubility, and appearance and odor under normal conditions.
  • Fire/Explosion Hazard Data. Lists ways to handle hazards such as fire-fighting equipment and procedures.
  • Reactivity Data. States whether the substance is stable and which substance and situation to avoid so it will not react. Spill or Leak Procedures and Disposal. Addresses what to do if the substance spills or leaks, how to dispose of the substance, and what equipment and procedures are needed for cleaning up spills and leaks.
  • Spill or Leak Procedures and Disposal. Addresses what to do if the substance spills or leaks, how to dispose of the substance, and what equipment and procedures are needed for cleaning up spills and leaks.
  • Health Hazards Data. States how chemicals could enter the body, such as inhaling, penetrating the skin, and swallowing. Discusses the possible hazards that could come from exposure, and lists chemicals that may be carcinogens.
  • Special Protection Information. List ways to reduce harmful exposure as well as special work or hygiene practices that should be followed.
  • Special Handling and Storage Precautions.
  • Hazardous Ingredients.
  • Other Information.

DoD Hazardous Materials Information System

This system produced by DoD, provides information on labeling requirements, chemical characteristics, physical characteristics, health effects, safety precaution, handling procedures, fire fighting, and spill procedures for chemical in the DoD supply system. Hazardous Materials are listed in the HMIS in order of its NSN (the last nine digits). If you only know the part number, trade name, FSCM, or specification number, sections at the back of the HMIS may give you a cross reference to the NSN. HMIS currently contains more than 40,000 product entries. The system is available through a microfiche set, magnetic tapes, and CD-ROM. HMIS is designed to suit the normal informational needs Of DoD personnel involved in emergency response, safety, industrial hygiene, storage, handling, and transportation. A separate section of the HMIS which is now available is devoted to disposal considerations. All data are republished in their entirety on an annual basis with updates each quarter.
