The Written Plan
MSDSs are available to any employee who wants to learn about a particular substance. MSDS files are maintained at each workplace for your perusal. A copy of each MSDS is placed in a wall-mounted MSDS station in the vicinity of the room in which substances are stored or used. The MSDS station is intended for the use of emergency fire and medical responders. MSDSs should never be removed from these wall stations by anyone else. Anyone at CCRI may obtain an MSDS hard copy for any room or area by calling call the Department of Security and Safety and Campus Police.
Anyone at the College or any outside interested party such as a fire department representative or private citizen may access MSDS pro (http://126.96.36.199/) and search the database for CCRI's Hazardous Substance Inventory and MSDS file. The program allows you to search for all hazardous materials currently in use or used in the past at CCRI by substance name or by location at each of CCRI's three sites, the Flanagan Campus (Lincoln) the Knight Campus (Warwick) or the Liston Campus (Providence).1.
