This Instructable is for Workshop Users at Pier 9.

Requirements for using our MSDS Online System.

  • You must have access to the Autodesk Infosys site
  • Take General Workshop Safety Class
  • Recommended - Spray Booth Class

The new MSDS online system will make it easier for users to not only search for approved chemicals but also request to have chemicals approved. Pier 9 is an amazing workshop with state of the art facilities and beautiful views. Due to our location and storage space we are highly regulated and very limited to what we can have at Pier 9.

This Instructable will help guide you through the ways of finding chemicals that have already been approved, and how to get chemicals approved.
