Learn More About SDS/MSDS

New regulations went into effect December 1, 2013, requiring staff to be trained on the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) chemical labeling requirements and safety data sheet format. HD Supply Facilities Maintenance can help you learn about the Globally Harmonized System and how these changes affect you and your employees. Learn More


Federal law requires U.S. employers to have Safety Data Sheets, or SDS, in the workplace for the specific chemicals they use. The purpose of an SDS is to provide employees and emergency workers with detailed safety information and proper handling instructions.

Some consumer products such as cosmetics, fragrances, drugs, etc. are exempt from SDS requirements, but their manufacturers will still supply safety documents. Those documents are found under the term MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet).

OSHA also requires secondary container labels when chemicals are diluted and transferred into a different container. These labels must identify the chemical and appropriate hazard warnings. Preprinted labels for your secondary containers may be available free of charge from specific product manufacturers. Learn More
