From MSDS to SDS
Although the name has changed from MSDS to SDS, the purpose of the document remains the same. A safety data sheet still serves as the linchpin to your hazard communication program, providing your employees with comprehensive safety information about hazardous chemicals in their workplace, aiding in chemical inventory management, and connecting the dots to container labels and other forms warnings in the workplace. Our sample WHMIS SDS is perfect to help you and your employees become familiar with the GHS-aligned format.
