All of us would rather work with materials and substances that we feel confident enough to be safe for usage as accorded by their materials safety data sheets or MSDSs. After all, who wants to work with hazardous substances unless the proper precautions are observed?

The same goes with the printers and printing supplies that we use. We want them to be safe for our usage, especially when we have them at home and our children are among their users. If you are using a Lexmark laser printer and printing supplies, how can you be sure that the Lexmark laser printer cartridge that you are using is not hazardous for you, your children and the people around you?

The answer is to look for the MSDS appropriate for the Lexmark laser printer cartridges that you use.
