Safety Data Sheets Overview

Safety Data sheets: Overview

Companies operate in the context of many national and international rules and regulations when they produce or sell products. They must ensure that the products they operate with in different business processes (such as selling, producing, research, and so on) meet all regulations such as laws, industry standards, and company standards. Companies must also ensure that the information on the safety data sheets and labels of the products is available and maintained appropriately.

The Safety Data Sheet and Label Management solution area supports companies to organize the required information about the safety data sheets and labels of products.

With Safety Data Sheet Management, companies can provide the required information for the safety data sheets of products. Safety data sheets (SDSs) are a well-accepted and effective method for the provision of information to recipients. Without a safety data sheet, a product cannot be sold into markets. Both employers and workers use safety data sheets as a source of information about hazards, including environmental hazards, and to obtain advice on safety precautions. The employer can use the safety data sheet information to consider any measures that may be necessary to protect the environment.
