In an effort to comply with national standards and adequately train Colby College students with “Right to Know” information, the Department of Performance, Theater, and Dance keeps Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) or Safety Data Sheets (SDS) on materials used in the production process.
Located in the Scene Shop and Costume Shop are binders containing information on how to read MSDS/SDS sheets and individual MSDS/SDS sheets for products used in Department of Performance, Theater, and Dance productions. You are encouraged to consult these binders when using paint and other materials stocked in the Scene Shop or Costume Shop. There is also an MSDS/SDS poster in the Scene Shop explaining how to read and understand these sheets.
In addition to these binders, Performance, Theater, and Dance has a location on Colby’s MSDSonline® page.
