Giving Chemicals the Care they Deserve

"The versatility and ease of use makes this a very strong product."
Dave Chapman,
Brooks Health System

Managing hazardous chemicals is a critical responsibility for hospitals, healthcare facilities, and physician offices. It’s a task made difficult by the variety of chemicals employed in those facilities and the need to safeguard the cross-section of employees, volunteers, and patients who are exposed to the chemicals as part of their routine activities. Compliance with OSHA’s HazCom Standard, the Joint Commission (JCAHO), and additional accrediting firms exert additional pressure on healthcare providers to meet stringent industry standards and best practices.

Meeting these challenges takes a partner who understands chemical management in the healthcare industry.  Our solutions are trusted by thousands of hospitals and healthcare facilities across North America.

Cloud-based solutions that help health-care providers meet HazCom / JCAHO compliance

Chemical Landscape

In a typical healthcare environment, there are a number of chemical concerns, including:

  • Clinical Chemicals
    • Pharmaceuticals
    • Laboratory & Reagents
    • Adhesives
  • Standard Chemicals
    • Housekeeping Supplies
    • Maintenance
    • HVAC, Machinery

For hospital networks, it is not uncommon for the number of chemicals to reach into the thousands. This creates a major pain-point, as safety directors want to see information on chemical hazards across the facility, while customized access to specific information and safety data sheets is desired at the employee and department level.

“Professional and knowledgeable staff. Millions of MSDS already in database.”
Louisiana Based Healthcare System

“The versatility and ease of use makes this a very strong product. The quantity of SDS and other data is unsurpassed. MSDSonline is a great time-saving device for all of my hazardous communication requirements.”
Dave Chapman, Brooks Health System

“I used to manually 'try' to keep up with the new MSDS updates but that was a never ending task. As a matter of fact, I could have spent my entire 40 hr work week on it and probably still not have my MSDS's up to par. What a wonderful service you offer. No more sheet protectors, messed up indexes, no more messed up manual altogether (employees or public) removing them and not putting them back in the proper order (or not putting them back at all). The list goes on. I could go on and on. To make a long story short, 40 hrs per week to maybe 5 minutes a week on MSDS's."
Valerie Centi, Fulton County Medical Center

“Very helpful. The online tools provided by MSDSonline: 1) save me time, 2) save me effort, 3) keep me in compliance, 4) provide a seamless transition [to GHS], 5) provide seamless updating, and 6) contain seamless education capabilities.”
Raymond Moore, Wagoner Community Hospital
