Safety Data Sheet / MSDS

An SDS is a structured document with information about the risks of a dangerous substance or preparation, and recommendations for a safe use at work. This term is used specifically for the European system of safety data and differs in some sections on the American system of Material Safety Data Sheet, abbreviated MSDS. Whoever introduces such a substance or preparation into commerce (as a manufacturer, importer or distributor) should provide the professional user with a safety data sheet. The breeder should the following know at all times:
• Which hazardous chemical agents are present in the workplace
• What are the risks associated with their use for the safety and health of workers and the environment
• What measures should be taken to protect the health, safety and the environment at work

The Brinkman Webshop

Safety data sheets are always and everywhere available in the web shop. For every product that contains a safety data sheet it is shown on the article page. Clicking on the briefcase symbol will open the safety information sheet in a PDF file in your browser.
