How can I use SDS Manager to document job / work procedures for hazardous chemicals?
In SDS Manager you can assess your work procedure according to REACH, OSHA and COSHH.
In our Work-procedure risk assessment you will be able to record the following information elements:
Frequency of the work procedure
The user that will perform the work procedure
The locations where the work procedures will be performed
Description of the procedure
Description of the job steps

Add substances (SDS) that are used in the Work procedure.
For each of the substances in the work procedure you may register the following:
-Form of the substance
-What the substance is used for
-How the substance should be used
-How the substance should be disposed of
-Duration of exposure to the substance in the work procedure
-Amount of the substance used in the work procedure
-Define the hazard types relevant for the work procedure
-For each of the hazard types, you can register classification of risk, classification of exposure and effect of PPE and controls
-Storage risk regarding safety events
-Storage risk regarding environmental release events.
On the Work procedure risk assessment, the risks will be listed for use without PPE and Controls and the risk with Controls.
SDS Manager use a risk classification range from 1-5 for (H)ealth, (S)afety and (E)nvironment
In below example we see that all Health risks are medium high (H3) while the safety risk is very low (S1)
The controls identified on the work procedure are displayed on any secondary container labels available for any users of the SDS Inventory Manager.
