Q
If we have determined that a material is not classified as hazardous and not classified as dangerous goods, are we required to maintain current (within 5 years) Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) on hand?

 

A
A person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) is only required to obtain and make available SDSs for hazardous chemicals. There is no general requirement for a PCBU to have SDSs for other materials in the workplace.
