Chemwatch recognises the fact that most, if not all, activity relating to chemicals does not happen in an office. (M)SDS, Inventory Management and Tracking, Hazard and Risk Assessments (and much more) is available on Smartphone and Tablet devices running Apple iOS and Android operating systems. The ability to assess the hazards and risks associated with a chemical on location, and not having to wait for "administration time" in the office, has proven to be enormously useful to workers, health and safety personnel, emergency responders as well as anyone who comes into contact, or has the potential to come into contact with chemicals. Geo-tagging allows you to identify all chemicals found at a particular location, automatically.  Activities performed in the system (addition of new chemicals to a location, for example), automatically sync with the Cloud and is immediately reflected in your system, whether you access it from your Smartphone, Tablet, Laptop, Desktop or even an ERP system.
Our services, products and solutions are a manifestation of combined efforts, knowledge and research undertaken by  professional staff of almost 300 include Chemists, Toxicologists, Hygienists,  Regulatory experts and physicians. Each contribute their expertise to each module, calculation and report produced by our systems. Our focus is on the knowing the Hazards, and evaluating the Risks. Chemwatch is not simply an IT company. Rapidly evolving technological solutions are enormously valuable in delivering fast, accurate and stable software.
Chemwatch ensures that Purple Book requirements (several revisions) are supported in its entirety. (M)SDS formats, including building block requirements for each region/country are also supported. Substance and mixture Classification Rules generate content automatically with "on-board engine". Country and region differences, for any substance, are reflected in all reports.
The library of 20+ million Vendor (M)SDS is a result of a 20 year-long journey of constant and never-ending improvement and customer focus. Essentially, we take over all activities related to (M)SDS Management. We source and maintain (M)SDS of interest to your organisation, extract key data from each document and make this data available for use by you, in our various modules. Each update of an (M)SDS is the subject of an email alert. Old and new (M)SDS are compared, electronically, side-by-side, with differences highlighted in red - this unique service  is offered only by Chemwatch.
