Managing Hazardous Chemicals
The aerospace and automotive sectors use vast quantities of chemicals and mixtures of chemical compounds (the aviation industry uses over 5,000 chemicals and mixtures).
Many chemicals used in the design and production of these niche sectors can be extremely hazardous to the health of workers. If any errors occur in the supply chain in regards misuse of a hazardous chemical substance, the consequences can range from product recalls on high value items to obvious health and safety concerns to workers, consumers and the environment. Meticulous chemical safety management is required throughout the supply chain process.
