> I see the advice above a fair amount in the general chemistry literature (particularly J Chem Ed articles) and am never sure how random browsing of SDS's adds safety value.
> In my opinion, before reading SDS's, it's important to formulate the question(s) to be answered. Examples of such questions could be:
> - Which is the most important hazard involved in this work?
> - What other hazards impact the precautions to be implemented?
> - How critical is the accuracy of the information I'm collecting to answer these questions adequately?
> Am I missing something here?
