Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

As a UM employee, you have access to Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) from just about anywhere you are!


All you need is access to the Internet, it's that simple:

  1. Visit the MyUM website: http://myum.miami.edu
  2. Log in with your CaneID and password
  3. Click on the "Employee" tab that appears on the top-right
  4. Under "Online Resources," select the MSDS link
  5. Now all you have to do is enter the name of the chemical in the search window.

According to OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, MSDS must be readily available and accessible to employees who are potentially exposed to hazardous chemicals. It is therefore incumbent for all University of Miami employees to be able to know how to get this information and direct others to do likewise.

If you have any questions, please contact Raul Garcia-Casariego at 305-243-8443.
