Lab and Chemical Safety

EH&S Occupational Health & Safety is responsible for providing support and guidance to faculty, staff, students, and other ASU community members in the development and implementation of appropriate lab and chemical safety practices and procedures.

Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) must be readily available to employees for each hazardous chemical used in the work area. Departments may maintain copies of MSDS as paper copies or electronically provided all affected employees can access the MSDS and know the location(s). Please refer to the ASU Hazard Communication Plan or Chemical Hygiene Plan for additional details. MSDS website resources can be found at:
