Giving Chemicals the Care they Deserve

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

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.

I love the software, it is easy to manage and updates automatically. I have no worries...great program. Jennifer Yazzie Fort Defiance Indian Hospital
Has been the best purchase that we have made. Could not ask for a more user friendly system. Key Britt Greenwood Leflore Hospital
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
The versatility and ease of use makes this a very strong product. Dave Chapman Brooks Health System

It is a very fast and effective way to find what you are looking for, or to update any msds sheets that need updating.
