For the hazardous substances registered in your supply chain at 10 tonnes or more per year you should already be receiving an extended version of the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) which includes relevant Exposure Scenarios. Do you know where to look for the key information for your site’s uses? Can you interpret your supplier’s information and implement suitable risk management measures for your workers and the environment?
If you formulate mixtures, you also need to identify and collate relevant information for onward supply. Under the CSR/ES Roadmap, Sector-specific Worker Exposure Descriptions (SWEDs) and Safe Use of Mixtures Information (SUMIs) have been developed in an effort to improve communication and use of information relating to formulated products. Knowing how to use these tools effectively will aid your supply chain communication.
