Safety Data Sheets
- Safety data sheets are the cornerstone of chemical hazard communication.
The production and use of chemicals are fundamental factors in the economic development of all countries. More substances and increasing production mean more storage, transport, handling, use and disposal of chemicals. Everyone involved in handling hazardous substances or preparations should be provided with written instructions on the properties of the chemicals.
The first and most essential step in the safe use of chemicals is to know their identity, their hazards to health and the environment and the means to control them. This inherently complex knowledge must be organized in such a way that essential information on the hazards and corresponding protective measures can be identified and conveyed to the user in a form that is easy to understand.
