Chemical Management as Reliable as You

Delivering the services and natural resources that form the infrastructure of our communities--like energy, gas, water, sewage, and telecommunications--is a vital mission. In the utilities world, the only thing that matters is results and it seems no one pays attention until things go wrong. Unfortunately, because of the nature of operations in the utility world, when things do go wrong it is usually at a scale unseen in other industries. That scale is also why waiting until there’s a problem is not an option when it comes to the risks associated with hazardous chemicals. Safeguarding employees and the community from chemical hazards begins with robust chemical and safety information management. MSDSonline solutions deliver both with a single solution that can handle a chemical footprint at a scale even a utility company can appreciate.

Chemical Landscape

Utility companies must employ a range of chemicals, often in great quantities, to ensure the delivery of their products. Depending upon the utility and its commodity, common chemicals can include industrial strength quality and quantities of the most hazardous products. A major issue for many utilities, with many of its employees working on location (which can change from day-to-day) and/or out of a truck, is deployment of critical safety information to workers. Additionally, employees both out in the field and back at the facility encounter a greater number of common chemicals like cleaning supplies and cleaners (degreasers, etc.) than the average consumer would, which triggers a variety of compliance responsibilities for alerting employees to the known hazards.
