Simplify MSDS Management

MSDS Management & HazCom / GHS Compliance

As a safety professional, you’re often asked to do a lot with few resources. Especially in a small- to mid-size business environment, where every penny counts. Administrative compliance tasks like inventorying chemicals, updating safety data sheet binders and filling out regulatory reports is time spent that could go toward other important safety issues.

What’s worse, managing these programs using paper-based methods is costly, cumbersome and often leads to noncompliance. As a result, hazard communication (OSHA’s HCS and Health Canada’s WHMIS) is among the most frequently cited compliance violations annually, costing businesses millions in fines, penalties and potential litigation expenses. And now with GHS adoption, things are getting even more complicated.

Now there’s an easy and affordable solution to help you. Our GM Account is ideal for one safety professional (administrator) at a single location. It delivers on-demand access to a suite of tools that empower you to build and maintain a compliant electronic MSDS / chemical inventory. Aptly named, it gives you the tools to make you the “general manager” of your MSDS / chemical inventory and to take charge of your HazCom compliance initiatives.

Online Safety Data Sheet Access

The GM Account is a cloud-based system that gives you unlimited access to our industry-leading online database, containing millions of manufacturer-original safety data sheets. You can stop wasting time searching multiple websites or calling manufacturers to obtain missing or out-of-date MSDSs. Our Auto-Update feature lets you know when an updated MSDS is available, which is especially useful in the transition to GHS. And if we don’t have a specific safety data sheet, you can use the request tool, and we’ll contact the manufacturer to request it for you.

MSDS Library Management

The GM Account provides a suite of basic MSDS management tools that allow you to assign chemical-product MSDSs to site-specific locations or to customizable groups for easier management and simplified reporting.

What’s more, your MSDS inventory can be printed or saved to a CD, DVD or external memory drive, giving you a fully compliant electronic hazard communication solution.

Chemical Inventory Management

The GM Account works seamlessly across multiple PC, laptop and mobile-device platforms so you’re always in control of your chemical inventory.  It enables you to organize your inventory in ways that make sense for your facility – by product groups, storage locations, regulatory categories, you name it.

You also can assign synonyms or create custom keywords to help you quickly sort your inventory, find product MSDSs and generate inventory reports.

You get a robust, cloud-based suite of tools for building and organizing your MSDS library, which saves you time and money… without the paperwork headache.   See full list of GM Features and System Requirements below.
