Subject: Re: Laboratory Risk Management
At Pacific Lutheran University we use the MSDSs as a teaching tool.
Students do a pre-lab write-up for each experiment where they check the
MSDSs for health hazards as well as  properties and registry numbers.
They are available on-line, in the stockroom and in notebooks specific
to each class and experiment in our unique open laboratory.
