DEC Burn Ban Announcement
April is "National Safe Digging Month". As the weather warms up and you start new home projects, tree plantings, and upgrades, it's important to be aware of underground utility locations around your home. Prior to starting to any type of excavation, call 811 before you dig. It's a free call that ensures your excavation project will be completed safely.
Safety Data Sheets
When working in a lab, it's important to become familiar with the chemicals you work with before you start conducting your experiment. A good source of important safety information is the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and the container label.
Use the SDS to find information on first aid measures, handling and storage procedures, waste disposal, regulatory information and more. The manufacturer of the chemical must provide you with the SDS.
