What is a Safety Data Sheet?

A Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is a document that provides health and safety information about products, substances or chemicals that are classified as hazardous substances or dangerous goods.

Who needs an SDS sheet?

Employers using or storing dangerous goods or hazardous substances on their premises must ensure that:

  • they obtain an up-to-date SDS for each of these products
  • their employees, contractors and emergency services personnel have access to the SDS

Manufacturers' and suppliers' responsibilities

Manufacturers and importers of dangerous goods and hazardous substances must:

  • prepare an SDS for each of their products
  • give the current SDS to employers or occupiers of premises where the product is used or stored
  • review and revise each SDS as often as necessary (at least every 5 years) to make sure that the information is accurate and up to date

Downstream suppliers of dangerous goods and hazardous substances must also give SDSs to buyers, which they can get from the manufacturer or importer. This does not apply to suppliers who are retailers (for example, hardware stores).
