A Refined Approach to Chemical Management

The increased productivity of the oil, gas, and mining industries in North America comes with increased scrutiny of environmental, health and safety practices, especially chemical safety. For example, as innovative technologies and processes push natural gas exploration into new communities – and local, state and federal regulatory agencies respond to public and private concerns – it is imperative that companies stay at the forefront of chemical and safety management. Employees and management must know exactly what chemicals are used and where, the risks associated with those chemicals, and the steps to prevent exposure. We make the tracking of chemicals and the deployment of safety information to remote employees simple. Moreover, with powerful regulatory cross-referencing tools, staying compliant and pursuing sustainable alternatives is easier than ever.
