System Messages – Feedback is important!
Status messages appear at the very TOP of the Chemwatch application to confirm every single operation. Green Messages describe success, Yellow will notify you of an incomplete operation or input and red ones denote errors.
100 Systems – 1 password is the new standard.
Single Sign On is the fastest growing IT innovation in recent years. Basically – with multiple systems and accounts, intranets, project tools, etc. average employee maintains more than 5 sets of credentials. Companies are employing Single Sign On technologies where a single central directory of users is used to authenticate who you are – regardless of which system you are trying to access. Chemwatch fully supports SSO!
Administrators of your Chemwatch application may select this option to ensure that passwords created in the system meet the strictest and latest standards.
In case your IT asks…we tick all the boxes!
Yes to HTTPS. Yes to SSO Authentication. Yes to unsurpassed Browser Compatibility. Yes to “NO FLASH”. Yes to integration. Yes to 3rd party code review (Veracode). Yes to state of the art military-grade security.
Configure your own Risk Matrix
By default, Chemwatch follows the widely adopted 5 x 5 Risk Matrix methodology (5 levels of SEVERITY and 5 levels of PROBABILITY). We have made these settings available to Administrators; In cases where internal policy dictates a different Risk model (e.g. 3×3 – Low, Medium, High) you may use this tool to adjust the entire model to match your policy. In addition, you may customise the colour scheme – and select which colour corresponds to which Risk Level.
Review suggested PPE so you can implement your own.
Chemwatch calculation engine will automatically suggest most appropriate Personal Protection based on the Chemical Hazard Assessment and the Task specifics (Scale, frequency, dustiness/volatility). Experienced HS&E managers may override this and select appropriate Personal Protection using a simple PPE Wizard, available in the Controls section of the Risk Assessment.
Unlimited Risk Assessments.
Chemwatch Subscribers can carry out unlimited risk assessments without any additional charge.
More than 100 pre-defined tasks and the ability to create your own!
Predefined tasks for the purpose of the Risk Assessment are taken from UK HSE and UN ILO guidelines. You may create your own unlimited task names to ensure your process is covered 100%.
Tasks that define the control measures are covered.
Some tasks may imply controls or change the physical properties of the substance/product in the risk assessment. These include Spraying, Welding, Mechanical grinding, for example. Chemwatch has pre-defined the Scenarios for these Tasks to ensure full automation of the assessment.
Your Risk Assessment in under 30 seconds!
One Page risk report is automatically available for every assessment carried out by you or one of your staff.
Additional Risk Assessment Control Documents. Automatic!
For each applicable Risk Assessment the relevant HSE and ILO control documents are automatically selected. This ensures that you can review and implement additional controls and checklists, as proposed by HSE (UK COSHH) and ILO (United Nations).
Health Surveillance substances identified for Risk Assessment
Health Surveillance filters flag materials and ingredients that fit the criteria. Detailed information is provided on type of monitoring. Simply execute a 1-click filter to identify all products containing substances, or substances themselves, that require Health Surveillance.
Distribute your Tasks independent to your Inventory.
Why? Because Chemicals are often not used and stored at the same location. Single product or substance may be used in many different ways. Risk Assessment is driven by a USE-Scenario; or in other words, a TASK. In Chemwatch Risk Assessment module you may create and distribute unlimited TASKS per chemical, ensuring every use-scenario is covered. To make things easier – we have allowed you to do this by simple Drag & Drop – or via right-click copy/paste menu.

Add, edit or remove controls to ensure that the list of available control measures reflects your workplace environment. Link any control to a specific Risk Level.
Create your own Control Documentation
Users can link their own control documents to any Risk Assessment. Simply right-click and attach as many documents as required by your internal process requirement.
Biological Monitoring Filter
Biological monitoring filters flag materials and ingredients that fit the criteria. Determinant sampling time and BEI is provided for each ingredient.

My (least) favourite chemicals…
Rather than creating endless folders and sub folders, Chemwatch systems feature a list-building feature called the ‘Intray’.
Build your own ‘favourite’ lists by adding any chemical to intray. You may do this from any location, search or filter results. This is quite valuable when you are building lists that are not linked to a particular location, but still require you to action, report on, or phase out.
The Babushka effect…
Substances contained in your products are subject to Regulation, Standards and Best practices, and as such, ultimately, drive your entire Chemicals Management Strategy. Chemwatch allows you to view your entire inventory of products broken down into individual ingredients; we even combine the volumes which allows you to see exactly how much of each substance you store.
Best of all – it requires no more than ONE CLICK to do so.
Find me all products containing “substance X”
Whenever you see an Pure chemical in Chemwatch system (more than 250,000) – you may right-click and select the INGREDIENT IN function. This feature allows you to find all products that contain that particular ingredient. Practically invaluable feature when it comes to implementing phaseout strategies…
Complete Summary of Incompatibilities
