    While material safety datasheets appear to be complicated, they are actually fairly easy to read. In essence, an MSDS should be make necessary determinations about the chemical products in the capacity that you will be handling using or storing it. for example, this could mean whether the product is hazardous, how best to store it, the Personal Protective Equipment(PPE) that should be worn, and how to properly dispose of it. Be aware that an MSDS isn’t a complete source of information, as they provide a general summary. Additionally the chemical or material in question may also be affected by local legislation, which isn’t typically found in an MSDS. When you read a material safety data sheet, bear in mind that there are four hazards types:
    • Health hazards
    • Fire hazards
    • Reactivity hazards, i.e. potential risks of mixing chemicals
    • Environmental hazards
