Safety Data Sheets
Some Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are provided here for commonly used substances. While all effort is made to ensure they are up to date they might not be the most recent version. You may need to contact the supplier or manufacturer of your substance to get it. Most suppliers have SDS available on their website.
It is the responsibility of a PCBU to ensure that SDS are available at any place where Hazardous Substances are stored, used or manufactured. Providing compliant and up to date SDS is a requirement for any supplier of hazardous substances. SDS can be available electronically and must be available to any Emergency Service Workers who attend your site in an emergency.
