Cylinder Fill Policy
This document was developed by the GAWDA Safety committee to address guidelines for cylinder ownership and exchange policy.
Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are produced by the product's manufacturer and are distributed throughout the supply channel. Any company which handles a hazardous product requiring an MSDS must have an MSDS on file at the warehousing location. Having MSDS available online does not relieve the vendor from the requirement to send a MSDS with the first shipment of hazardous material, and again with the first shipment after a MSDS has been materially revised. MSDS should always be available from the product supplier or the manufacturer.
