New Release DVD: Safety Data Sheets - An Introduction



The Safety Data Sheet is the internationally accepted basis for supplying sound written scientific information on hazardous substances.

Safety Data Sheets provide essential information that includes details on how to use substances safely without harmful effects to people or the environment.

This program covers:
• The basic layout of Safety Data Sheets
• Why SDSs are commonly used
• A breakdown on the most important safety related sections found in most SDSs, including:
        Hazard Identification
        Exposure Controls and Personal Protection
        Physical and Chemical Properties
        Stability and Reactivity, and
        Toxicological Information.

Safety Data Sheets can be very challenging to read and understand but they do contain a wealth of information.  Having an ability to properly interpret them will make it easier to arrive at informed decisions regarding the use of hazardous substances.
