Basic Toxicology & Ecotoxicology for Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
Over the years I have been teaching courses on Safety Data Sheet (SDS) authoring, I have realised that many attendees often have limited knowledge of toxicology and ecotoxicology.
Furthermore, from the questions which are frequently asked in my training courses, it is evident that there is both limited experience in sourcing reliable information as well as a lack of understanding of the information’s significance with respect to other sections of the SDS.
Basic Toxicology & Ecotoxicology for Safety Data Sheets is a new live two- hour training webinar which provides a basic overview of toxicology and ecotoxicology in such a way to enable the author of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) to understand what the toxicological or ecotoxicological terminology means and how it can be used.
This webinar complements the ‘How to write compliant (and useful) SDS’ webinar in that it further develops the ways in which relatively simple pieces of information can be used in an SDS to enable consistency throughout the document – something which is often missing.
This webinar is applicable for all SDS, irrespective of where in the world you are located. The theory which we will cover in this session is also useful for those of you involved in classification and labelling (CLP/GHS).
What is covered in the session
- Basic terminology; including NOAEL, LOAEL, LD50, ATE, STOT, CMR
- Acute, sub-acute and chronic toxicity
- Carcinogens, mutagens, toxic for reproduction (CMR)
- Irritants and corrosives (skin, eyes and respiratory tract)
- Respiratory and skin sensitisers
- Specific target organ toxicity (STOT) – single and repeated exposures
- Aspiration toxicity
- Types of data- in vivo, in vitro, ex vivo, in silico.
- Data sources
Throughout the webinar, examples will be used to illustrate key points.
This brand new training webinar is specifically designed for SDS authors/recipients of SDS. However, the toxicology and ecotoxicology theory which is covered would also be useful for classification and labelling work (CLP/GHS).
