Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is a document that contains information on the potential hazards (health, fire, reactivity and environmental) and how to work safely with the chemical product. It also contains information on the use, storage, handling and emergency procedures all related to the hazards of the material. MSDSs are prepared by the supplier or manufacturer of the material. 

An MSDS for propane is available from a fuel supplier or the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety. The Canadian Propane Association (CPA) does not publish an MSDS because the CPA does not produce or supply propane.
