MSDSOnline will e-mail a database of all SDS to the account administrator. The SDS can also be downloaded individually by users. In an emergency, a flash drive and a laptop can provide easy access to the files without internet service. The files will have to be kept up to date, but so do paper copies. For labs that use many different chemicals, it may be easier to sort files on a flash drive than papers in several different binders.

Good afternoon,

We are looking to get a subscription to MSDSOnline that links in with our inventory software. All of a sudden we are getting a lot of questions about what people should do in an emergency. They have been trained to grab their MSDS binder and go to the emergency room, etc. and the idea of not having something tangible is worrying a lot of people.

Have any of you dealt with this issue? How have you talked your customers down and encouraged them to embrace the new system? How do you handle emergencies and accessing MSDSOnline remotely?

Thanks so much,
