Module 1, Introduction to Basic SDS Writing
This module is an introductory training day on the compilation of safety data sheets (SDSs) for substances and mixtures that are classifiable under the CLP Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.
The module focuses on the requirements for SDS content brought about by the amendment to the REACH Regulations.
Who Should Attend?
This course, delivered live, online over two consecutive mornings, is a basic introduction to the preparation and writing of safety data sheets. It is specifically designed for those entering this area for the first time and covers the very basic concepts required for those new to writing SDSs.
Benefits Of Attending
Attendance on this series of modules will ensure that your SDSs meet the increasing expectations of both your customers and the regulators. To ensure the most effective training with optimum involvement in participative exercises, there will be a limit of 14 on the number of students.
IOSH members are entitled to include this module in their continuing professional development (CPD) records.
What You Will Learn
This module will introduce participants to the basics of writing a safety data sheet and will include sessions covering the following topics:
- how a newcomer to the job can make sense of the requirements for SDSs
- introduction to the legislation behind SDSs
- what information is needed for each section of an SDS and where to obtain that information
- how to use that information
- a logical approach to writing an SDS
Exercises will be held throughout the day to assist in the understanding of the concepts introduced.
The 'Brexit' outcome from the June 2016 referendum is unlikely to affect the importance of compliance with EU legislation. As now, businesses supplying chemicals in other EU Member States or in the European Economic Area will have to comply with European law. The future requirements on those supplying chemicals only in the UK may only become certain when the terms of the exit have been agreed. However existing experience is that open access to the EU market is associated with national adherence to the same standards.
This module is presented by Laura H Robinson. Laura is a qualified Toxicologist and Chemist with over 14 years’ experience in industry working with HSE related issues. This includes authoring safety data sheets, classification and labelling, environmental issues and workplace risk assessments.

The sessions will run live and delegates can interact with the tutor and other delegates using their device microphone. The tutor will use a PowerPoint presentation, just as they would in face-to-face training. We will provide you with copies of the presentation and all other supporting documentation in advance of the training, by email.
