The safety data sheet (SDS) is a standardized information bulletin prepared by the manufacturer or importer of a chemical that describes its properties, hazards, ingredients and more. These forms must be must also ensure that downstream employers, or companies, are similarly provided a SDS. Whenever “new or significant information” regarding a chemical’s hazard potential is realized, manufacturers and importers must update their SDSs. They have to update within three months of learning this new information.
Appendix D of the HCS explains the information to be included on the SDS and also the format required. All chemical manufacturers and distributors must use the same format. This format is the same as the American National Standards Institute standard on Safety Data Sheets, which is familiar to many US employers. This uniform approach to SDSs improves its effectiveness, makes it easier for your employer to comply with the regulation and provides a safer workplace for employees.
Your employees must have access to Safety Data Sheets at all times if they work with potentially hazardous chemicals. They also have a right to know the chemical ingredients, risks, and how to protect themselves. To comply with these regulations, your workers must have easy access to these sheets in a highly visible place and be able to interpret their information easily.
This training will cover everything your workers need to know about Safety Data Sheets and comply with Right-to-Know laws.
