Aside from being more organized there are a few immediate practical rewards you’ll see: 1) you will establish a solid baseline for creating material approval and control procedures, 2) ensure MSDS compliance, and 3) automate regulatory reporting that is efficient and accurate.
Additionally, the full report indicates which safety data sheets are updated and which ones aren’t, so identifying materials and vendors that need to be updated is a snap.
We’ve upgraded the SiteHawk User Interface and added new features and functionality to make safety data sheet and chemical compliance more powerful for your EH&S team. The new user interface is designed to simplify workflows and increase navigation speed making the new SiteHawk faster and smoother for our users. Be on the look-out for your…
We made several feature enhancements in 2012 across our SDS Management and SDS Authoring software platforms. Several new features such as SiteHawk QRy and MAPS (Material Analysis Profiling System) earned the attention and praise of SiteHawk customers and industry experts. SiteHawk QRy allows users to create a SiteHawk-generated QR code for any material in a customer’s SDS notebook for instant retrieval and display of an SDS on a mobile device. MAPS, a comprehensive chemical profiling system gives users the ability to unlock important chemical data from products, materials, and production processes with advanced insight into materials or substances that may trigger a regulatory issue or raise customer concerns.
Electronic Safety Data Sheet management systems work exactly in the same manner. Data, or what is commonly known as “indexing”, is needed for search and reporting engines to work.
The concept of Relevant ingredients are only applicable to the following hazards: Acute toxicity, Skin Corrosion/Irritation, Eye Damage/Irritation and Aquatic toxicity.
We took the opportunity to not only update our help files, but we also took the time to re-vamp our entire support site
I love telling our customers that you can “Never Search Again” and have immediate, one click access to the exact, most current SDS (for you old schoolers– MSDS) available.
In a nutshell, The Safe Chemicals Act of 2011 that made it out of the senate committee would require businesses that produce and process chemicals to test the chemicals now in use that have never been tested for toxic impact on human health and the environment, and place the onus on companies both to prioritize action for chemicals of high concern, and inform the public about all the chemicals they put into their products.
This picture is still under reconstruction as NFPA works toward enforcement guidance related to emergency responder use of the “diamond” label going forward.
