Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Compliance Checklist
Chemical manufacturers and importers are required to obtain or develop safety data sheets (SDS) for each chemical they produce.
How does it work?
Distributors are responsible for ensuring that their customers are provided a copy of this safety data information as part of SDS compliance and required local regulations for chemical inventory management.
Use the SDS Compliance checklist app with your smartphone or tablet to ensure that employers and workers use the material safety data as sources of information about chemical hazards and to obtain advice on occupational safety for any work area that contains a chemical inventory.
The material safety data sheets app enables the employer to develop a hazard management program of occupational safety measures, including training, which is specific to the individual workplace, and to consider any measures that may be necessary to protect the health and safety of the work area. SDS information is also useful for those transporting dangerous chemical hazards, emergency responders, medical personnel and poison centers, and those involved with applying pesticides.
