You can also choose if you want to put in the manufacturer or not. Then click "Search" to the right. To look at the actual MSDS click the icon all the way to the left of the product in the "view" column.

  • Use the second search box which is "Search MSDS Online"
  • This gives you the option to end a Product Identifier or Manufacturer Identifier
  • If you find a product you wish to add, click the box to the left of the product
  • Scroll to the top and click the button "Add to eBinder"
  • A message will appear that Public Safety will be notified of the MSDS selected
  • You are not required to select a location or reason
  • Once the request is saved, it will return to the previous search with a message at the top of the screen indicating the MSDS was successfully added

If you are searching for a product in a specific department:

  1. 1. Click on the "Locations" tab. Here it gives you a list of all the products by department (called "Facilities" here). The facilities have also been broken down by room.

Reminders:

  • There are several pages for each search you do, so make sure that you look at every page if you aren't finding what you're looking for
  • Every product is listed in alphabetical order. Some products have other information (such as numbers) in front of them that make them hard to find, so if you can't find a product, try changing the options of full text, contains a match or starts with.
