COBRA and COSHHPliant offer SDS management and comprehensive chemical risk assessments in the one compact package. COSHHPliant has been tailored to suit the needs of those in the UK to meet local chemical safety requirements, whilst COBRA is applicable for organisations to use globally.
The application allows you to find the SDS you need from the Chemwatch library, then quickly and easily complete job-based risk assessments. Risk assessment reports are single-page, colour-coded, and easy for all workers to read and understand, and can be generated in as little as 30 seconds!
Risk assessments are essential in chemicals management to minimise risks to human health. They are an evaluation of the possible ways a hazard may present itself to cause harm, and are key in any workplace where physical, chemical, or other occupational hazards may be present.
A chemical risk assessment can be used to determine:
Risk assessments are necessary when a new or unknown risk is presented, such as using a new chemical, undertaking a new job with an existing chemical, or when workplace changes may impact current control measures. While you may only have one SDS for a given substance, you may need multiple risk assessments depending on the tasks required.
The Chemical Risk Assessment application is designed for small and medium enterprises, and eliminates expertise as a factor so that anybody can generate and communicate risk assessments and controls. All you need is the SDS or label and working conditions, our software produces the rest.
It is available as an option in our GoldFFX and Chemeritus packages, as well as COSHH COBRA alone. The module is based on International Labour Organisation (ILO) and United Nations (UN) guidelines, and allows employers and employees alike to generate a risk assessment with ease.
Our extensive database of SDS allows almost all risk assessments to be pre-populated through SDS data extraction. The one-page risk assessment includes GHS and dangerous goods classification, precautionary information, PPE and other control measures, and an optional section to add approvals information. Chemwatch health risk reports contain icons, pictograms, clear and concise phrases, as well as colour coded hazard and risk statements to ensure easy and succinct communication.
