EH&S Challenges Managing Chemical Safety

The food and beverage industry are one of the most regulated industries and its goals to protect human health and the environment from hazardous chemicals can’t be compromised. To remain chemical compliant and protect brand integrity, food and beverage processors must implement a robust chemical safety management plan and be experts in key global regulatory bodies. Compliance with OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard dictates that all employees must have access to Safety Data Sheets for all hazardous chemicals used in food and beverage manufacturing facilities.

Managing hundreds and often thousands of Safety Data Sheets can place a huge burden on food and beverage facilities. Contacting and re-contacting suppliers for each updated SDS’s is time consuming and frustrating. Distributing up to date and accurate Safety Data Sheets across its facility or multiple facilities for all employees is an extremely daunting task for EHS departments.


  • Chemdoc is trusted by leading food and beverage manufacturing facilities.
  • 100% retention rate of all our customers.
  • EHS professionals can concentrate on critical health and safety tasks.
  • Ensure SDS for the chemicals in your facility are managed and updated effectively, safely and in compliance with OSHA HazCom Standard.

A wide range of chemicals are used on site and my role is advising on the safe management of chemicals. We had a system previously but it had a lack of risk assessments & out of date or no SDS available. With Chemdoc we have an up to data SDS database and a fully customisable risk assessment module.

“I find the user interface intuitive which is very important if non safety people are using the system. When you search a chemical or look at the chemicals in use in the area it allows you to pull up the SDS and COSHH assessment easily. I also like that the Chemdoc guys manage the revision control of your safety sheets, which if you are working off excel databases or share-point falls back on the safety team normally to manage – a very onerous task.”
