Chemical risk assessment is a key component of any Health & Safety policy and with Safeguard’s intuitive Chemical Risk Assessment software, you have full control and visibility of substance and process risk assessments across your organization.
Safeguard ensures you have full management and control of the hazardous substances used across your organization.
Simplify and Improve the Quality of Data Capture
Using Safeguard’s comprehensive functionality combined with its powerful flexibility, chemical and process-based risk assessment templates can be designed and configured specifically for you, ensuring users are asked only to record information relevant to the assessment they are undertaking.
- The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of classification and labeling of chemicals
- Hazard (H) Statements
- GHS Precautionary (P) Statements
- Workplace exposure limits
- Spillage and disposal details
- PPE required
- Safe systems of work
- Action plans
- Upload supporting electronic documentation
Whether you use a 3x3, 5x5, or perhaps something very specific to your organization or industry, Safeguard incorporates your risk matrix and corresponding risk calculation.
As is standard with any Safeguard module, you can incorporate help text throughout your templates, guiding users through the sometimes daunting risk assessment process.
Attach MSDS’ to Chemical Risk Assessments
Centralize all supporting documents against each chemical risk assessment record, including the Manufacturers Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), meaning you never have to navigate through multiple systems again to locate vital information. Key details are available fast, at the touch of a button.
Increase Collaborative Working
Safeguard enables you to take best practice chemical and process risk assessments and share them quickly amongst colleagues throughout your organization. This helps eliminate any duplication of effort, provides a standardized approach to the completion of chemical and process risk assessments, shares best practices and encourage a positive risk management culture.
Increase Chemical Risk Assessment Completion
Safeguard’s powerful workflow engine and email notification system helps our clients to engage the right people throughout the chemical risk assessment process and ensure awareness of responsibility at all stages.
Fully integrated action management provides you with complete reassurance that the decisions you make and action plans you put in to place are acted upon. Actions can be assigned to colleagues, with automated email notifications ensuring complete visibility and accountability at every step in the action lifecycle.
Safeguard’s peer review and approval workflow provides significant confidence to the end user that those with relevant qualifications and experience will check the content they have created before signing-off the document and making it available to the workforce.
With Safeguard’s on-going review process, you define the review periods for your chemical risk assessments, guaranteeing you never let your chemical risk assessments lapse and become obsolete. Whether a blanket review period (for example, every 12 months) or periodic reviews (based on the risk rating, for example high=6 months, medium=12 months, low=24 months), automatic email notifications are delivered to those responsible to remind them of these key events.
Improve Awareness and Communication
All Chemical risk assessments can be exported as PDF documents, helping you to implement a communication program in-line with OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) by ensuring electronic, non-editable versions of documents are available to the workforce.
Complete Visibility at the Touch of a Button
Detailed management reporting helps you quickly perform real-time analysis across your organization and provides complete visibility to target problem areas quickly.
