Employers must make sure that all controlled products have an up-to-date (less than three years old) MSDS when it enters the workplace. The MSDSs must be readily available to the workers who are exposed to the controlled product and to the health and safety committee or representative. If a controlled product is made in the workplace, the employer has a duty to prepare an MSDS for any of these products.
We have included product information and MSDS links and documents for commonly used Salon and Spa products. Please contact manufacturers directly for products that you carry in your workplace.
Common Disinfectant Trade Names
Disinfectant products must claim the appropriate level of disinfection. This can be identified through their Drug Identification Number (DIN), which is a number provided by only Health Canada. This number ensures labeling and supporting data have been provided, and that the product has undergone and passed a review of its formulation, labeling, and instructions for use.
