News Flash: Check out "Manufacturers Turn to 3-D Printing" - see how 3D printing is going from prototyping to full scall manufacturing. This additive manufacturing process is also used in micro maching, including MEMS packaging. Good overview article. Here is a great video on what 3D printers are (thanks Carrie, for the link): 3D Printing in Space?
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) Learning Module
This safety learning module covers the content and interpretation of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).
MEMS fabrication requires the use of many chemicals, some which have potential hazards; therefore, before working in a fabrication facility one must know how to locate a MSDS for a specific chemical and be able to extract all of the safety information that ensures a safe and accident free environment. This learning module provides content and activities that allow the participants to locate MSDSs, extract information and compare the potential hazards of two or more chemicals. Participants will also identify the action needed in case of chemical exposure or spill using the information in a MSDS.
This category contains an Instructor Guide, Participant Guide and supporting presentation.
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) Learning Module - Participant (Student) Guide.
This learning module contain a pre and post quiz, instructional material on the MSDS, and three activities. Upon completion of this learning module, on should be able to interpret a MSDS as well as locate an MSDS online.
