    Whenever substances that are hazardous to health are present in the workplace employers are under a duty to make sure that they cannot and are not allowed to cause ill-health to any person. Detailed regulations set out specific steps that must be followed.

Suppliers are obliged to classify their products and include warnings and safety information on the label. They must also provide you with a more detailed Safety Data Sheet.
