A SDS (Safety Data Sheet) formerly known as a Material Safety Data Sheet is required under the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard. This is a detailed informational document prepared by the manufacturer or importer of a hazardous chemical. It describes the physical and chemical properties of the product. The Safety Data Sheet:
In order to standardize the older OSHA 174 MSDS form consisting of 8 sections, a more expanded version consisting of 16 sections of information is becoming the international format. These 16 sections and a brief description of each are:
To clarify, if a product's hazard rating for health has a scale number of 3 (which = High), then it is more significant to a user's health than a scale number of 1(which = Slight).
By the same token, if a product's hazard rating for fire has a scale number of 4 (which = Extreme), then it is more flammable (thus more significant to a user's health) than a scale number of 2 (which = Moderate).
The safest products will have a scale number of 0 for each of the four hazard ratings.
In general, if your business is an end user of hazardous chemicals, you should be able to obtain a free Safety Data Sheet from the manufacturer or distributor that can be posted in the workplace and kept in your records.
The Safety Data Sheet information may be useful but it can not substitute for careful practices as to minimize the risk of cleaning products.
A big take away from consulting a cleaning solution's SDS is knowing how safe or harmful a cleaning solution is to the user or the building occupant.
