Arizona SDS: What you need to know

Comparison: State Vs. Federal

Arizona is a “state plan” state; that is, it has a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. The Arizona Occupational Safety and Health Act governs workplace safety and health, including safety data sheet (SDS) requirements, in both the public and private sector workplaces. SDS requirements for workplace safety and health in Arizona mirror the federal regulations. For a comprehensive discussion of the requirements for SDSs and guidance in preparing them, see the national HAZARD COMMUNICATION STANDARD and MSDS/SDS analyses.
