What is a Safety Data Sheet?
Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) are designed to protect the health and safety of people handling a substance by providing information on the hazards of substances and how they should be safely used, stored, transported and disposed of. SDSs also describe emergency procedures, such as what to do in the event of an accident, spill or fire.
Note: The SDS is for the substance in the form of the substance 'in the bottle' e.g. the concentrate or ready to use form. Once a concentrate is diluted its hazards are reduced.
Information in the SDS is presented using the following 16 headings in the order given below:
- Hazard(s) identification
- Composition/information on ingredients
- First-aid measures
- Fire-fighting measures
- Accidental release measures
- Handling and Storage
- Exposure controls/personal protection
- Physical and chemical properties
- Stability and reactivity
- Toxicological information
- Ecological information
- Disposal considerations
- Transport information
- Regulatory information
- Other information
