Hazardous Material Spills


Potentially hazardous materials found on farms include but are not limited to: fuel and petroleum products, pesticides, fumigants, fertilizers, cleaners and disinfectants.


Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are available from your supplier or the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety at 1-800-668-4284. The SDS contains much more information about the material than the label. It is intended to tell what the hazards of the product are, how to use the product safely, what to expect if the recommendations are not followed, what to do if accidents occur, how to recognize symptoms of overexposure, and what to do if such incidents occur.
