At Chemical Safety International, we work with businesses that use and store chemicals to ensure that people and the environment which are exposed to hazardous chemicals and dangerous goods, are protected from any potential hazards.

We work with various industries and author evidence and knowledge-based safety data sheets (SDS), to enable businesses, to implement optimal workplace chemical safety.

With our experience, knowledge, and team of specialists, our safety data sheets outline safe handling methods and ensure compliance with current Work, Health and Safety Regulations.

Safety Data Sheets

Under Australian regulations, manufacturers and importers of hazardous chemicals have duties to provide compliant and current safety data sheets (SDS) for hazardous chemicals.

Safety data sheets provide information about a chemical, in order to identify hazards associated with a product and to minimise risks associated with the use of hazardous chemicals and dangerous goods.

Information on an SDS includes, however is not limited to, GHS classification, Dangerous Goods classification, emergency response measures, as well as information on safe storage and handling.

Safety data sheets are key documents which assist businesses in managing chemicals in the workplace.

With a detailed SDS, businesses can take appropriate measures to use, handle and store chemicals safely, without harm to the user or the environment.

Is Your Safety Data Sheet Reliable?

The Work, Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations, stipulate that importers, manufacturers and suppliers of hazardous chemicals, are to provide current information about the hazardous chemical in the form of a safety data sheet (SDS).

At Chemical Safety International, we provide detailed, compliant, and comprehensive SDS to ensure regulatory responsibilities are met.

Our team ensure that SDS are tailored to your business and that they are an important factor in the safe supply, handling and use of chemicals in your workplace.

Our team of specialists can additionally, assist you in determining if your current SDS are compliant and if any overseas manufacturer’s SDS, comply with the WHS Regulations.

SDS which are not prepared by a manufacturer and sourced from a third party run the risk of non-compliance, largely due to computer-generated, generic authoring systems.

Additionally, as authoring requirements differ between jurisdictions, state to state and country to country, it is common to see non-compliant SDS in Australian workplaces.

At Chemical Safety International, we understand the importance of regulatory monitoring and ensuring compliance in all aspects of chemical management. Contact our representatives to gain a better understanding in how we can help manage your legal obligations under the Work, Health and Safety laws.
