Do You Know Where Your MSDS Are?

What you need to know about your Material Safety Data Sheets.

Just a friendly reminder: You must have Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for all the products you use. If you don’t have this important documentation you are doing yourself and your clients a huge disservice from a safety standpoint, and you are also at risk of being cited by your local OSHA agency.

What’s more, there’s a liability issue. Should you have the misfortune of being involved in a lawsuit, you need to be able to answer “yes” when the plaintiff’s lawyer asks if you possess and have read the MSDS for the products you use.

Products requiring MSDS include (but are not limited to) acrylic liquids and powders, resins, accelerators, adhesives, gels, polish, polish remover, primer, dehydrators, top coats, disinfectants, cleaning solvents, nail art paint, quick-dry spray, and liquid cuticle remover. Anything that is flammable, could cause irritation or ingestion problems, or that could cause someone to slip (such as gels or oils) should also have an MSDS.
