Managing Hazardous Chemicals
The healthcare sector is a major user of chemicals, many are hazardous and pose an exposure risk for healthcare workers, patients, the public and the environment.
Compliance regulations dictates that all employees must have access to information for all hazardous chemicals used in the work environment.
Managing thousands of safety data sheets and completing chemical risk assessments can place a huge burden on resources in the healthcare sector. Sourcing current SDS and re-contacting suppliers for each update is time consuming and frustrating. In addition, distribution of the documents to all employees during various shifts is an extremely time consuming and challenging task for EHS departments in hospitals.
