At the Finger Lakes competition I learned a great many things about safety. A few things I wanted to share.... 1) MSDS is no longer called MSDS... weird right? It is called SDS because it is less broad of a subject. For example, MSDS has the word material in it so wouldn't it include Aluminum and Plastic? However, with SDS it is a bit less broad of a spectrum. It is still perfectly acceptable to call them MSDS because that is a term that is well known, I have decided to label our binder with both MSDS and SDS.
I'm very proud of our team. We have shown our commitment to making the work a safer place and it has been recognized by FIRST. Congratulations to the Circuit Stompers. The awards are not the important thing however. It's the fact that we are working towards making robotics and this world a safer place.

MSDS stands for Material Safety Data Sheets. They are so very important to the safety of us all. They should contain information on what's in a chemical or material, such as contact cement of loctite. You know those things on packages that say stuff like "if ingested contact a poison control center"? That is MSDS and everyone should have those organized and clearly depicted thought text or pictures, or both! Keep all this in mind while you prepare your pits, help us create a safe and secure world around us. Stomp onto safety at our side!
