Safety data sheet (SDS) training
SDSs play a vital role in communicating hazard information about substances and mixtures throughout the supply chain. If this information is inadequate, important details may not be correctly conveyed to people handling them. This can lead to potential accidents and incorrect emergency action being taken, consequently posing risks to people and the environment.
NCEC offers this training as a full 10 module course that is designed for delegates to be able to author their own SDS, or as a bespoke training course where modules can be tailored to suit your requirements. This enables us to open up the course to delegates with varying levels of experience in SDS authoring.
The full 10 module course is shown below and contains modules ranging from how to classify under the classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) Regulation, to where delegates can obtain information to complete their SDS.
