Safety Data Sheets: Petroleum Industry Practices

This Document presents a summary of how petroleum industry companies develop and distribute Safety Data Sheets (SDSs or MSDSs) for purposes of hazard communication. An SDS is a written document that describes the properties and hazards of a material and is used to transmit hazard information to employers and employees. The SDS is an important element of a hazard communication program. Petroleum industry companies have invested resources over many years to develop and implement comprehensive systems to produce SDSs that thoroughly and accurately communicate the hazards of petroleum products and other materials. The SDS Petroleum Industry Practices document includes sample SDSs for petroleum products.
