Solution Summary

Safety Data Sheet Compliance

The MSDSonline HQ Account combines access to our industry-leading database of manufacturer-original safety data sheets, with easy-to-use safety data sheet deployment tools to give you a better way to ensure compliance with global hazard communication requirements

The HQ account is a cloud-based system that works seamlessly across multiple PC, laptop and mobile device platforms. Combined with our SDS / Chemical Management mobile app, you and your employees can have access to critical safety information no matter where your are, even when you're offline.

If you're looking for a tool to help you manage the influx of newly-formatted safety data sheets coming in as a result of OSHA and Health Canada's adoption of GHS, the MSDSonline HQ Account is the right tool for the job. The document auto-update and SDS flagging features of the HQ Account make it easy to stay on top of your SDS management requirements.

Chemical Inventory Management

The HQ Account offers robust chemical inventory management tools, including label indexing and barcoding, that allow you to more accurately track, manage and label the chemicals in your facilities right down to the container level – helping simplify Tier II and other compliance reporting requirements.

Our chemical inventory mapping feature includes easy-to-use drag and drop controls that allow you to identify, move and manage your chemical inventory on a virtual floor plan of your facility. Plus, our new Plan1 First Responder Share Service lets you easily share these maps and other potentially lifesaving chemical information, directly with first responders.

Imagine having real-time status of all the chemical hazards in your work environment. Our built-in chemical approval and notification workflow puts you in better control over what chemicals are accepted or restricted from your facilities. Now, everyone's on the same page, even if they're working in different locations.

Right-to-Know Compliance

GHS alignment in the U.S., Canada and beyond will require the ongoing evaluation and reclassification of chemical hazards. As an employer, it's your job to ensure that your employees are trained to recognize any new chemical hazards, and that they are given direct, unimpeded access to hazard information contained in the safety data sheets. Knowing what chemicals you have, where they are, and how to properly handle them goes a long way toward ensuring you have a safe and productive workplace.

The HQ Account offers an easy-to-use web interface to ensure your employees have immediate Right-to-Know access to your company-specific library of SDSs, secondary container labels, and other vital chemical safety information. You can assign and manage chemical products to a customizable, multi-level location structure that mirrors your physical locations for a virtual view of your enterprise’s entire chemical footprint.
