A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is a document that contains information on the potential hazards (health, fire, reactivity and environmental) and how to work safely with the chemical product. Manufacturers and distributors of all sizes increasingly face challenges that result from globalization in the marketplace and changing international regulatory initiatives. This has a direct effect on the company's ability to efficiently and effectively produce and maintain currency of MSDS / SDSs, labels and hazard communication documents for their products. Effective, compliant and up-to-date documents - especially MSDS / SDSs - are not only a global requirement, but serve as the critical centerpiece for enabling effective product stewardship practices throughout the product's lifecycle. In today's environment, merely producing an MSDS / SDS is not enough. Quality, accuracy, and currency are critical components to fulfilling the original intentions for requiring documentation in the first place.
It is also a challengeable fact that thousands of Small and Medium Scale (SMEs) companies in developing countries that are involved in chemicals manufacturing and formulation, without needed knowledge of MSDS or lack the expertise to guide them to develop accurate MSDS. This course teaches you how to develop MSDS and how to provide MSDS development technical support to chemical companies. It is a course that can make you money as a MSDS Consultant.
