                                  OSHA Hazard Communication Standard 29CFR 1910.1200 requires that SDS must be provided by manufactures and downstream distributors to purchasers of industrial gas products with the initial shipment of the chemical. It also requires that all employees who may be exposed to a hazardous chemical have ready access to the SDS at all times.

                                  Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are an important resource for safety awareness and education as well as a reference tool for emergency preparedness and emergency response programs and teams. 

                                  SDS provide information about the composition, characteristics and potential hazards of gas and liquid products.  They include tips on safe handling, and information useful to emergency response and other medical personnel about ways to avoid adverse effects and deal with health problems.

                                  OSHA regulations require that SDS be supplied to all purchasers of potentially hazardous products and that employers make appropriate SDS available, at all times, to those working in areas where exposure to hazardous materials may occur. 

                                  UIG has prepared SDS for industrial gas products in liquid and gas form which are manufactured and/or distributed by UIG. The latest versions may be viewed or downloaded from this site.

                                   
                                  Every employer has the responsibility to maintain current copies of SDS in a central location on the worksite in a manner that ensures that employees are able to refer to them while they are in their work areas during all shifts.  This requirement may be met in many ways; for instance, by maintaining hard copies of current SDS in a binder or by maintaining links to the SDS through accessible computer systems and terminals.

                                                                  In addition to the types of situations and hazards encountered in most industrial, manufacturing, warehousing and material delivery operations, employees, customers and contractors working with industrial gases must remain aware of special hazards associated with these products.

                                                                  UIG safety awareness programs involve home office personnel; UIG construction, operation and maintenance field personnel and UIG contractors. Safety Data Sheets (SDS) play an important role in these programs as both a teaching aid and a ready reference source for critical information on properties, hazards, good practices and first aid associated with these gas and liquid products.

                                                                  The Guidebook describes basic characteristics of the material they may have to deal with, and guidance on how to protect themselves and the general public during the initial response phase of the incident.

                                                                  Each UIG SDS page contains the relevant Emergency Response Guidebook Guide Number.

                                                                  Ratings are given for Health, Flammability and Instability (or Reactivity) and displayed in three colored diamonds. A while diamond at the bottom of the diagram is reserved for information on special hazards associated with fire fighting - alerting to reactivity with water or significant oxidizing potential. NFPA ratings are shown on each UIG SDS.
