Safety Data Sheets
A safety data sheet (SDS) must be available for each hazardous material found in the lab. This page contains links to SDSs for chemical and biological agents.
SDS for chemicals (available to Western Users only)
The Western community now has access to a new database of safety data sheets. ChemWatch GoldFFX is an international provider of SDSs and related chemical information with a library in excess of 30 million vendor SDSs that is continually updated.
SDS for pathogens
Pathogen Safety Data Sheets maintained by the Pathogen Regulation Directorate, Public Health Agency of Canada.
Other SDS resources
At Western Libraries there are several searchable databases with information on chemicals. While they are not strictly SDS, they are a source of valuable information.
HECHMET (Higher Education Cooperative for Hazardous Materials and Equipment Tracking) is an online database currently being used by Western to create a university-wide chemical inventory.
