Safety Data Sheets
Compliance with OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.1200, the Hazard Communication Standard, means that employees have "immediate access" to Safety Data Sheets (SDS) while they are in their workplace. We offer a variety of products to assist you in this goal. We offer binders, compliance/training centers, signs, posters, labels, software and more to assist you in this task.
SDS's used to be called MSDS's (Material Safety Data Sheets), but OSHA revised their wording of the term to bring US regulations into compliance with the Globally Harmonized Standard (GHS). There is no prohibition on using the old term, so don't sweat it. Just make sure your (M)SDS collection is up to date just like you have always done.
We also offer a comprehensive free SDS resource with hundreds of pages of information. See, for example, our SDS FAQ, SDS HyperGlossary, and guide to the HazCom regulation at our sister site, ILPI.
If you have absolutely no idea where to start with your compliance, OHSA has a nice fact sheet which summarizes the requirements at https://www.osha.gov/Publications/OSHA3696.pdf along with a very handy small entity compliance guide for employers that use hazardous chemicals at https://www.osha.gov/Publications/OSHA3695.pdf.
