“A material safety data sheet (MSDS) is a form containing data regarding the properties of a particular substance.”
“The MSDS includes info such as physical data (melting point, boiling point, flash point, etc.), toxicity, health effects, first aid, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective equipment, and spill handling procedures. ”
“MSDS are a widely used system for cataloging information on chemicals, chemical compounds, and chemical mixtures. MSDS info may include instructions for the safe use and potential hazards associated with a particular material or product.”
Interior designers need to ask about Material Safety Data Sheets because every product as an MSDS. It’s important to find out what is actually in a product before it is used in a residential or commercial project. If an interior designer didn’t know about the MSDS, they could potentially be polluting a place where people will be spending a lot of time. It’s essential for the health of the users that interior designers always find out what’s in a product before it’s used in any application.
