Introduction to Toxicology, Ecotoxicology & Physicochemical properties for Safety Data Sheets
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 chemistry, toxicology or 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.
All of this may lead to inconsistencies and inaccuracies elsewhere within the SDS and in all likelihood, the hazard communication will be incorrect. This has also been highlighted in the recent ECHA Forum Report on Improvement of Quality of SDS (May 2019)
This webinar complements the introduction to writing compliant (and useful) SDS in that it further develops the ways in which relatively simple pieces of information can be used in a SDS to enable consistency throughout the document – something which is often missing!
The webinar provides an overview of toxicology, ecotoxicology and physicochemical properties (i.e. physical and chemical properties) in such a way to enable the author of SDS to understand what the terminology means, useful data sources, how to evaluate the data and importantly, how it should be used.
- Data requirements for Sections 9, 11 and 12 and, how to interpret it.
- Useful data sources and how to evaluate data for reliability.
- The significance of the information and how it should be used in other sections of the SDS to improve consistency.
Throughout the webinar, examples will be used to illustrate key points.
Note: Although the focus will be on European SDS, the principles which are taught are applicable to all geographical areas of the world. In other words, all SDS.
This brand new training webinar is specifically designed for SDS authors/recipients of SDS.
- Training notes complementing the webinar
- Copy of all slides used during the training
- Copy of the live recording
- Certificate of attendance (if required)
- You can also ask questions at any time during or after the training webinar class
