Title CHCS Training “Advanced Preparation of Safety Data Sheets” (Module 15)
Organiser Chemical Hazards Communication Society (CHCS)
Location Malmaison Hotel, 1-3 Piccadilly, Manchester M1 1LZ

No single part of the SDS can be considered in isolation; toxicologists need to understand the importance of chemistry and ecotoxicologists need to know about first aid recommendations just as much as chemists need to know about toxicology and ecotoxicology. This module 'takes a step back' and considers the whole picture both from a technical and an administrative viewpoint. It also goes into much more depth than the introductory module (Module 1) and introduces the ‘extended’ SDS required under REACH.

Who Should Attend

This one-day course is a mixture of small, group exercises and tutorial sessions and is aimed at those with a reasonable technical understanding of topics included in the SDS, but who want to know how they all fit together.

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. The content of this module considers the changes under REACH and introduction of some new terminology. It will also serve as an introduction to Module 20 (The Extended SDS, Understanding Exposure Scenarios). To ensure the most effective training with optimum involvement in participative exercises, there will be a limit of 14 on the number of students. It is expected that those attending will already have reasonable experience in writing and reading SDSs.

IOSH members are entitled to include this module in their continuing professional development records.
