Chemical management has always been one of the pillars of occupational safety and health, especially in those sectors where the use of dangerous chemicals is inevitable. Proper plan for chemical management not only saves the workers from endangerment but also, the environment and companies from legal suits. However, to come up with such a plan and later on implement it can at times be very challenging, particularly to large organizations which may have many divisions. An Effective Chemical Management Plan: WHS Monitor can help address these challenges and ensure proper chemical safety practices are in place.

Streamlined Chemical Inventory Management

Another problem in chemical management is that sometimes it takes a while to track down the quantities of the chemicals that you have in stock. One of the primary hurdles that WHS Monitor overcomes directly is its inventory management feature which is easy to use. Each chemical can be imported, monitored, and modified in its details such as storage zones, amount, and usage trends. This sort of real-time visibility not only improves safety but also makes procurement more efficient thus eliminating wasteful items in expending resources.

Integrated SDS Management

Safety Data Sheets are the foundation of chemical safety information, however managing access to numerous SDSs can be complex. WHS Monitor also aids in this process by collapsing all the SDSs into one central location while guaranteeing that the most recent updates are accessible to both the employees and the management. This helps to avoid making decisions based on incorrect or inadequate information since the system alerts users when changes have to be made to the SDSs.

Risk Identification and Mitigation Strategies

Chemical risk management is as vital to any management plan as is determining what to manage and how to manage it. WHS Monitor includes detailed tools for risk assessments allowing the organization’s WHS team and the user to follow the correct steps of risk identification, risk rating, and choice of control options. The program’s risk assessment module enables one to develop and build risk matrices that can be unique to individual organizations. As for the risk control measures, the users can record them for reporting, and also indicate who is responsible for controlling a specific risk and when the control should be reviewed.

Training and Compliance Management

It is very crucial to ensure all employees are trained on how to handle chemicals and safety measures as a way of avoiding the occurrence of hazardous incidences. Our feature of training management aids the organization in tracking the records of the employees’ training, setting up reminders for recurrent courses, and effectively managing the certifications. Managers will be notified on when training should be conducted so that all the employees are always in touch with the up and coming safety measures.

Incident Reporting and Investigation

It is, nevertheless, pertinent to note that, even with the best safety and security measures in place; a chemical mishap may yet happen. When they do, immediacy and efficiency of the cleansing process is of essence. The incident reporting and investigation module of WHS Monitor is aimed at assisting industries in reporting, investigating as well as learning from chemical related incidents. Incidents can be easily reported by the users through the system where details such as location where the incident occurred, chemicals that were involved and actions that were taken are reported.
