Under alignment with GHS, safety data sheets are reformatted to follow a strictly ordered 16-section format. Although the name is 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 SDS is perfect to help your employees become familiar with the GHS aligned format.
Features of the Sample SDS:
Prescribed 16-section format makes it easy for employees to quickly locate the information they need during an incident
Sections 12-15 are included, but remain outside of OSHA jurisdiction
GHS pictograms provide hazard information
NFPA and HMIS information remains optional
