The workshop provides a basic insight into aspects of Safety Data Sheets including:
• Legal requirements
• SDS content
• Non-EU information
• Exposure scenarios
• Future developments
Safety Data Sheets are required for all hazardous materials that you buy or sell.
The mandated 16 section safety data sheet can be challenging to navigate, and it can be difficult to find the information that you are looking for. Once familiar with the layout and the content you can expect in each section then it will be easier to understand and determine the safe handling and storage of the product.
The EU legislation regarding the preparation of the SDS requires the person compiling the SDS to be “Competent” and according to Annex II of REACH, that “Persons placing substances and preparations on the market shall ensure that competent persons have received appropriate training, including refresher training.”
Who should attend?
The workshop is suitable for all levels of personnel requiring a basic practical knowledge of the safety data sheet provisions.
It will be useful to those specifically responsible for handling, using and disseminating SDS. It will also give an insight for those generating SDS using software.
