January 18, 2019 at 11:22 AM

Under the Federal Government’s amended WHMIS legislation, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) have been renamed Safety Data Sheets (SDS). Similar to MSDS, SDS are summary documents that provide information about the hazards of a product and advice about safety precautions; however, under WHMIS 2015 there are new requirements for the format of SDSs which includes required content under 16 headings. SDSs must also be in both English and French and updated within 90 days of new information becoming available. OSSGA has made English and French sample SDS available for granite, limestone and, sand & gravel.
