A Safety Data Sheet (SDS) should be obtained for each chemical that is used by your department, division, laboratory or shop. Each SDS must be specific to the product that it describes and specific to the manufacturer of the substance.
The manufacturer or distributor of hazardous substances is required to provide EH&S an SDS for every substance that they distribute. The University of Nevada, Reno EH&S department has created an online application to allow you to download SDS documents specific to chemicals from all key chemical suppliers working with our University.
The University of Nevada, Reno has also licensed an external SDS Search system from Canada’s National Occupational Health & Safety. The database is available to view from any computer on the University network.
For more information regarding our online SDS Search System or to request a copy of an SDS, please call the EH&S Office at (775) 327-5040.
