A Safety Data Sheet (SDS) should be produced for all hazardous substances and mixtures. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has compiled a Guidance Document for the preparation of SDS under the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). One of the requirements is for an emergency telephone number to be displayed under Section 1.4 of the SDS.
The Guidance document (Version 1.1 December 2011) states that, in Section 1.4 of an SDS:
Any restrictions relating to the operation of the emergency telephone number - including hours of operation (e.g. Monday to Friday, 9.00am - 5.30pm) and limitations on the type of advice available, must be stated.
For many chemical suppliers it is important that the SDS is of a high standard and that they can show that emergency advice is available at all times. Customers of 24-7 Response can display our Emergency Line telephone number on their SDS with the reassurance that specialist product-specific advice will be provided - at any time.
