Frequently asked questions

Working safely with chemical products

MSDS stands for Material Safety Data Sheet. This sheet also contains information provided by the producer/manufacturer. It is also simply known as an SDS. The information it contains is required to create a workplace instruction card.

There is no central contact point for hazardous substances or chemical products. There is a special medical information point, however, which enables physicians to check how harmful to human health substances are and the applicable medication/antidotes.

The data contained in Toxic is subject to copyright, and therefore has to be purchased prior to use. Furthermore, the information in only significant in combination with your business information, such as the specific workplace site(s) in your organisation where the product is used. General provision of the information would therefore be neither useful nor appropriate.

Legally speaking, an MSDS is not sufficient to inform an employee in the workplace. After all, it is basically intended to inform experts and specialists. It is therefore open to various interpretations. Moreover, the MSDS does not contain all the information required to create a workplace instruction card.

For a further explanation of the validation carried out by Toxic: please consult this page For an explanation of handling substances contained in the Dutch CMR list please consult this document.

Yes, it is. Businesses are not only obliged to register these products (Articles 4.2 and 4.13 of the Working Conditions Decree) but also to establish the risks of handling them by means of an assessment or measurement (Article 4.9). Furthermore, employees have to be notified of these risks (Article 4.9). For further information, please consult

A vital part of the workplace information is the product composition in conjunction with the latest Dutch legislation. These factors are continually monitored and updated wherever changes are applicable. The validated workplace information may therefore contain different data to the original MSDS. Registration is carried out on the basis of the date of release of the MSDS. This date is actively monitored. We access the latest version of an MSDS for you.


Validated workplace information is compiled for every commonly used product with a current MSDS. The database is therefore kept up to date on the basis of current and new user requests.

Generally not. If it is an EC country, then the MSDS sheets are standardised, which implies that all the latest Dutch versions of the sheets can be used. The workplace information is compiled on the basis of the composition, while also paying consideration to the latest Dutch guidelines (including the list of MAC levels). The same applies to sheets originating from outside the EC. Incidentally, all products originating from outside the EC require authorisation, which is not issued unless information is available which complies with the EC guidelines. What is it does not have EC authorisation? In that case, the product is legally prohibited.

Cross Approach® is more extensive, expensive and primarily intended for businesses which require integration with their (quality, health & safety and environmental) management systems. Toxic is intended for the registration of chemical products.

Workplace instruction cards

Yes, each basic card allows you to create variants, enabling you to enter your own text, thereby making additions to the basic work instruction card.

Yes, that is possible. You are legally obliged to provide a workplace card in Dutch. Should you require a workplace card in a different language for foreign workers, then you also have the option of printing one in English. Set the language to English before printing, in this case. If you require workplace cards in another foreign language, then you can also have them translated.

Quotation and subscription to Toxic

It is advisable to commence bay making an inventory of the CRM products. You then have an initial estimate of the number of products required. You can always amend your subscription later.

As long as you operate using a temporary code, you will not receive an invoice. Nor will you receive any data, however. You cannot order data until you have returned a signed copy of the quotation/contract to Toxic. Once we receive your signed copy of the quotation/contract, we shall forward your login details and an invoice to you.

The term of the contract is three years. On expiry of the term, it is tacitly renewed for one year each time. What happens if you cancel your subscription? Then you no longer have access to the management program or your data. Neither are updated any longer, in this case.

REACH legislation

REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemical substances. It simultaneously enhances the competitiveness of the chemicals industry in the EU. The regulation also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances, with a view to reducing the number of tests carried out on animals.

Het verschil tussen Toxic Productregistratie en Toxic Blootstellingsberekeningen is dat de productregistratie de eerste stap is in het veilig werken met chemische producten en de blootstellingsberekeningen de opvolgende, tweede stap. Je wilt immers als organisatie eerst weten welke producten met bijbehorende actuele gevarenclassificaties je in huis hebt en daarna start je op basis van die gevarenclassificaties met het berekenen van de blootstelling. Zit je op of boven de grenswaarde dan wordt het meten van de blootstelling aan gevaarlijke stoffen aangeraden. Toxic houdt de gevarenclassificatie van uw chemische [producten voor u bij qua wetgeving en veranderde samenstelling en wij bereken de bloostelling voor u. U hoeft zelf slechts 5 variabelen in te voeren. Grenswaarden en dergelijke gegevens houden wij bij. U voegt bij blootstelling alleen uw eigen situatie toe. Denk aan ventilatie, de mate en manier van gebruik. 



Als u de APF (Actual Protection Factor) invult, koppelt de blootstellingsmodule van Toxic hier een reductiefactor aan. Voor de meeste PBM’s ademhalingsbeschermingsmiddelen is deze APF beschikbaar in de documentatie die u heeft ontvangen van de leverancier of via hun website. Indien dit niet het geval is, raden wij u aan om even contact op te nemen met uw leverancier om de APF op te vragen.

Voor de meeste handschoenen is een APF lastiger te vinden. Daarom raden wij u aan om bij handschoenen de volgende werkwijze toe te passen:

•Als u de handschoenen gebruikt die worden aangeraden op het SDS, kunt u APF 10 selecteren. Dit levert een reductiefactor van 90% op.

•Als u andere handschoenen gebruikt dan wordt aangeraden op het SDS, gebruikt u APF 5. Dit levert een reductiefactor van 80% op.
