It's a very common practice in the agricultural and industrial to have to look at a SDS when using certain chemicals. Their properties vary and when it comes down to it there are a lot of things to sift through to find out the actual use of a 'SDS'. Here is a simple guide to break it down so you know what you're looking at when dealing with an SDS.
A Safety Data Sheet (SDS), previously called a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), is a document that provides information on the properties of hazardous chemicals and how they affect health and safety in the workplace. For example an SDS includes information on:
The SDS should always be referred to when assessing risks in the workplace.
This is a simple break down of what a SDS sheet looks like and what each section entails. It is so you are aware of the conditions certain chemicals need to remain under and what happens when any of those are breached. Stay safe when using any chemicals and always refer to the product label and SDS information.
I hope this was helpful for next time you handle chemical you have an understanding of what an SDS is and what to look for on an SDS worksheet.
