What is a SDS – Safety Data Sheet

WHMIS 2015 requires suppliers to provide a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for each hazardous product they sell.

Safety Data Sheets must be in English and French, and must include 16 sections of information on the hazards of the product, as well as first-aid measures, fire-fighting measures, and spill-handling procedures. SDSs replace MSDSs (Material Safety Data Sheets), which are no longer used under WHMIS 2015.

WHMIS 2015 includes new hazard classes and revised classification criteria, new labelling requirements, and a new 16-section safety data sheet format. It uses GHS to harmonise Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) with other international systems.
