Default MSDS Sheets

Has anybody ever worked on a site where they require MSDS Sheets for everything in your van? I understand the concept but is there really a need for a MSDS Sheet on a can of air? Yes I got my chops broke today on it

just keep a looseleaf notebook on your truck of everything you normally carry that needs a data sheet. the supply house should be able to help you out if you need it.

I'm sure there will be a time when OSHA requires an MSDS for the Mountain Dew you're drinking, or the tea, or the Big Mac you're wolfing down at lunch.

I have, however, actually seen an MSDS for water.

Every site I have been on for at least the last 20 years required MSDS for potentially hazardous materials used.

I wonder if the pencil neck who busted your chops has MSDS for the liquid paper in his office.

Just get in the habit at the parts house of asking for MSDS sheets on anything you buy. The parts houses WILL have them. From conduit to glue, there's a sheet on it. All petro-chemical stuff. There's probably a sheet on wire nuts.

We have MSDS books in our trucks with a couple hundred sheets each. You can find most on the internet.

Lately, I've been seeing other trades on jobs with an MSDS sticker in their gang boxes with a 1-800 number on them. I guess you pay a fee for the MSDS service and they have the info on everything. Not sure what it costs, but seems like a good idea. As long as you have a phone.

I think the whole idea is that you have the MSDS on hand.....in case you need them NOW.

99% of my work is heavy industrial - building gas plants, pump stations, compressor stations, etc. Many of the clients require an MSDS for everything brought onsite.
