    I am interested to see that you are suggesting that only Hazardous Chemicals require an SDS, my understanding was that any chemical Hazardous or not when used in the work place requires an SDS. What is the Australian Standards for chemicals in the workplace. I know Health facilities are regularly audited for all chemicals as well Food Authority Auditors look for all chemical SDS

      Hi Jenny, Thanks for the comment. You’re correct in that some non-hazardous chemicals will have an SDS – such as Pro Safety Gear’s sunscreen, however as per Safe Work Australia’s page on SDS “Non-hazardous chemicals do not require SDS.” You can see that here: https://www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au/sds#non-hazardous-chemicals

      That said Jenny, some industries may have their own rules outside of the scope of this article. We hope that helps!
