Manufacturers and importers of chemicals can begin using the GHS for classification, labelling and preparing safety data sheets, however the GHS is not mandatory until 1 January 2017.
The Nationally Harmonised Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) Legislations is a national effort to unify Australia's legislative framework.
Employers should provide original and unaltered SDS from the manufacturer or supplier of the products that they use and store in the workplace.
The number of pages in a Safety Data Sheet may vary and depends on the amount of information that exists for each particular substance.
SDS are available from manufacturers and suppliers as hard-copy or soft-copy documents.
It is recommended that a folder is kept clearly marked and with Safety Data Sheets stored alphabetically by trade name. Agricultural and veterinary chemicals are sold in a variety of formulations, typically to suit their physical state and use patterns.If your employer uses a software program or Internet subscription service for SDS's then maybe not (check with your supervisor, the answer depends on what state and federal agencies have jurisdiction, see also the section on paperless compliance below.).If the copies you received are exact duplicates (and not updated ones) of sheets that you already have in your "readily accessible" SDS collection, then there is no requirement to keep the extra copies on hand.In Australia SDS should follow either the format outlined by the GHS (Globally Harmonised System) or the National Code of Practice for the Preparation of Material Safety Data Sheets, 2nd Edition (NOHSC2011-2003), which stipulate a 16-section format: Section 1 - Identification of the material and supplier Section 2 - Hazards identification Section 3 - Composition/information on ingredients Section 4 - First aid measures Section 5 - Fire fighting measures Section 6 - Accidental release measures Section 7 - Handling and storage Section 8 - Exposure controls/personal protection Section 9 - Physical and chemical properties Section 10 - Stability and reactivity Section 11 - Toxicological information Section 12 - Ecological information Section 13 - Disposal considerations Section 14 - Transport information Section 15 - Regulatory information Section 16 - Other information Relevant legislations require a hazardous substances register and dangerous goods register to be maintained as well as a documented hazard identification and risk management processes. Whilst the label is a culmination of a risk assessment process done by the APVMA, and compliance with the label goes a long way towards being a suitable control for OH&S purposes you still need to assess risks and use the hierarchy of controls which relate to your particular situation.The primary objective of maintaining these records is to ensure the health & safety and wellbeing of employees, the workplace and the environment.
In particular, product labels provide specific legal usage information which must be followed when preparing and applying the product while safety data sheets provide specific health risk and safety information for handling these chemicals.
