Simplify Safety Data Sheet Management

SDS / 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 even more complicated.

Our online GM Account blends more than 20 years of software innovation with industry best practices to help you simplify compliance, affordably. With new and improved features for even greater ease-of-use and quicker implementation, it enables you to build and maintain a compliant, on-demand, electronic safety data sheet and chemical inventory. It's idea for one safety professional (administrator) at a single location, giving you the tools to be the “general manager” of your SDS / MSDS and chemical inventory and to take charge of your HazCom compliance initiatives.

The GM Account is ideal for small to mid-size companies that want an easier way to manage their SDS / chemical inventory to comply with HazCom requirements.

Online Safety Data Sheet Access

The GM Account is a cloud-based, mobile-enabled 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 You can stop wasting time searching multiple websites or calling manufacturers to obtain missing or out-of-date MSDSs.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 safety data sheet is available, which is especially useful for workplaces still transitioning to GHS. And if we don’t have a specific SDS, you can use the request tool, and we’ll contact the manufacturer to request it for you.

SDS / MSDS Library Management

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

What’s more, your SDS 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 SDSs and generate inventory reports.
