COBRA / COSHHPliant Solutions

approvals logoPrior to the use or purchase of any chemical, modern Chemical Management Requirements, demand Approvals be issued by stakeholders. The Chemwatch solution is unique. Users may extract key data from a Vendor SDS and within seconds the Approval process is launched. The process includes review of all Ingredients, in a mixture, to determine whether they:
  •  are found in any of 300  Lists of Concerns (Banned Substances:  Carcinogen, Mutagen, Reprotoxin –  CMR Lists)
  •  are NOT found in National Inventories (and therefore in the country without sanction)
  •  are registered for Use in the REACh Supply chain ,  require Authorisation or have
  • “Uses Advised Against”
  •  require Health Surveillance
The process also generates several key documents to assist stakeholders in the assessment. These include production of:
  •  a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)
  •  full Animal Toxicity Report
  •  full Environmental Fate and Ecotoxicity Report
  •  PPE Report
  •  One page summaries of the key data found on the (M)SDS (can be customised to meet individual needs)
  •  a Risk Assessment and Mitigation Report
These Reports are all available within seconds and can be distributed to named personnel using an on-board Workflow tool.
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.
Emergency Response documents are generated for all Chemicals in the system. Fire, Spills, First Aid, Medical and Worker or domestic exposure advice is available for each chemical (substance or mixture). Reports are comprehensive (they may contain several pages of information each). Emergency Response Service Hot Line 24/7 provides responses in over 150 languages and is supported by trained individuals specialising in Fire/ Spills/ Medical and Regulatory disciplines. This service is used by hundreds of companies world-wide.

COBRA / COSHHPliant Features

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. 3x3 - 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.
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.
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.
Biological Monitoring Filter Biological monitoring filters flag materials and ingredients that fit the criteria. Determinant sampling time and BEI is provided for each ingredient.
1 page. Clear. Concise. Direct. The purpose of a Risk Assessment is to communicate the risks associated with a particular use scenario in a particular environment. To communicate this information clearly and concisely Chemwatch has developed a 1 page Risk Assessment report template especially designed to be understandable by non-professionals. Colour coding denotes the level of risk; Available in 47 languages.
