Product Description

Revised Edition 2012

Objectives

The Safety Data Sheet: A Guide to First-Aid Recommendations is a practical tool to help people prepare and evaluate first aid recommendations for chemical exposures, to minimize the effects of an accidental exposure to a chemical product. The recommendations in this CCOHS publication were updated in 2012.

Scope

The First-Aid Measures section on a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) provides recommendations on how to minimize the effects of an accidental exposure to a chemical product. The recommendations describe measures that first-aid providers are able to safely use at the scene of a chemical exposure, prior to obtaining medical assistance.

The Safety Data Sheet: A Guide to First-Aid Recommendations presents a system for preparing and/or evaluating first aid recommendations for chemical exposures in the workplace. The 34 page publication identifies key questions on the health, fire and reactivity hazards of a chemical product, and provides the user with a decision tree (flowchart approach) for arriving at accurate, consistent first aid recommendations for each route of occupational exposure (skin, eye, inhalation and ingestion).

New in this edition: The first-aid recommendations provided are consistent with the mandatory label phrases of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).

Target Audience

The publication is intended for people who have a basic understanding of chemicals and their hazards and who write or evaluate first aid recommendations for Safety Data Sheets.
