Description

Disponible en français

This intermediate level e-course covers the standard 16-section format introduced in WHMIS 2015, providing you with a thorough explanation of a safety data sheet (SDS).

Under WHMIS law, suppliers and manufacturers must inform workplaces about the hazards and safe use of their products. They meet this requirement by providing the employer with an SDS for each hazardous product. SDSs are important resources that allow you to identify the hazards of the products you use and to protect yourself from those hazards, including safe handling and emergency measures. Understanding them is critical to your safety.

Note that this course does not include instruction on writing SDSs or in-depth evaluation of SDSs for quality assurance.

Topics include

The four main purposes of an SDS:

  • Identification of the product and supplier
