SDS databases are safety data sheet reservoirs collected from various manufacturers, suppliers, 3rd party companies, and government organizations. Many types of SDS databases are currently implemented, existing in both digital and/or hard-copy forms; the former enabling easy access to safety data sheets at the convenience of a desktop, the latter providing the information as a comprehensive, hard-copy version.
SDS databases, in conjunction with other useful databases, exist to provide users with extensive lists of the names and properties of all known chemicals, to provide updated health and safety information, and to provide a vast collection of experimental results from any related test studies. The increasing utilization of SDS databases can be attributed to their overall effectiveness in function:
1. Databases act as facilitative repositories of retrievable information that can easily be accessed during the production of labels and safety data sheets.
2. Digital databases contain electronic versions of SDSs for any hazardous products present in the workplace, sometimes in lieu of paper versions.
3. Workplaces utilizing this electronic alternative must ensure that workers have access to compatible devices containing the e-versions of SDS databases and that workers are effectively trained in their use.
