Access the SDS library

With SDS Manager you get easy access to your SDS library and all safety information by simply scanning a QR-code poster.

Many of our customers also use tablets where SDS Manager i installed. We can help installing Kiosk software on the tables to only allow the tablet to be used for accessing Safety Data Sheets, and automatically open your SDS library when powered on.


SDS Manager is specialized to be used on mobile phones. 

Since we extract all information from the PDF files in a structured format, information is available in a readable format that also work well on mobile phones.

Easy for employees to find Safety Data Sheets in your SDS library

To find Safety Data Sheet for a product in your SDS library, you simply enter a word or two from the product name and/or supplier name and the SDS is easily found.

For the case when the no SDS is not found in your SDS library for the search term used, the user have option to redo the search using our global database of 10Million+ safety data sheets.



Access to Hazard information 

On the Hazard tab, H and P codes are showing in the SDS list.  By clicking on a SDS in the list, a panel expands and the full H and P sentence is shown.



In the SDS list, there are convenient quick buttons to First Aid measures,  Firefighting measures and Accidental release measures. SDS Manager also extract PPE icons from the SDS and show them to users.


All SDS are given an rudimentary ratings for Health hazard, Safety hazard and Environmental hazard based on a scale from 1 to 5.  The rating is done based on H and P codes found in the SDS file.  These ratings will give an idea about the hazard levels associated with a product.

With our module for SDS risk assessment you can create hazard ratings for your organizations use and storage situations.


Secondary container labels

For particular hazardous substances or when secondary containers are used SDS Manager allow you to create labels in 15 different sizes.  

These labels have QR code that allow users direct access to the Safety Data Sheet of the product. H and P codes are shown on the labels as well as PPE icons found in the SDS



Access to detailed information from the Safety Data Sheets

For users that need access to very detailed information from the Safety Data Sheets, the user can configure what data from the SDS to be shown.  

Below we see an example where a user has configured the system to show the Boiling point on all products.



Users have access to the original Safety Data Sheet file by pressing the "PDF" icon.  As shown below, the PDF version is much less readable on a mobile phone than the extracted view of the data that SDS Manager present the users.



SDS Risk assessment and Job procedures

If you are using SDS Manager for creating risk assessment and Job hazard analysis, employees will get easy access to required PPEs and QR codes to read detailed instructions.

When users are assigned to a job procedure, you can require them to register a read-receipt (Confirm read). The read-receipt will be the documentation that the users have read the procedures and are informed about PPE and controls.


Below are examples of a dummy Chemical instruction & risk assessment and a dummy Job procedure (COSHH compliant Job hazard analysis)

Seeing is believing!

Please click on the below picture or scan the below QR code with your cell phone and see for yourself what employees will see when they access your next SDS library.


Do we have a SDS Manager APP for iOS and Android that employees can install to access the SDS library?

Some of our customers are asking if we have an APP their employees can use.  

We strongly discourage our customers to reply on installed APPs, which require passwords for login to give access to safety information, as it is unrealistic to expect all employees to have an updated SDS APP always installed on their phones. You do not want your employees to be installing APPs and look for passwords when an accident has occurred.


Offline access to SDS library

If you require Offline access to your SDS library SDS manager allow you to create SDS binders.  This is a PDF file that contain all the Safety Data Sheets you have in your SDS library for a location.

Click on the below image to see example of an SDS binder.
