The Most Comprehensive Chemical Inventory Tracking Software
Effective chemical inventory management is the cornerstone of any facility’s operations. Properly maintaining regulated materials in inventory can be simplified by using a chemical inventory tracking software system that helps the organization to:

  • Comply with complex and changing environmental regulations
  • Manage chemical incompatibilities
  • Reduce chemical purchasing and on-site storage
  • Reduce operational costs as well as corporate liability

The Original Chemical Inventory Software
Chemical Safety’s EMS environmental health and safety software is a product with a rich history. It was the first commercially available chemical inventory tracking software solution offered in the US market and it’s since been widely adapted by corporations, universities, and government agencies (including the US EPA). Today, EMS continues as a market leader. Its extensive feature set, ease of use, and low implementation cost make it the EH&S software of choice for both large and small organizations.

Chemical Inventory Management Case Study

The Challenge

A leading biopharmaceutical company that focuses on drug discovery determined, following an internal safety audit, that it did not have the processes in place to monitor, update and report chemical use in the facility.  Chemicals were purchased centrally, but scientists did not review or update any information on storage, use, or disposal.  This resulted in excessive chemical purchasing, unsafe storage of incompatible chemicals, expired chemicals in inventory and chemicals listed as available but missing at critical times.  This resulted in unnecessary purchasing costs, higher than forecast waste disposal costs and significant regulatory and corporate exposure.

The Solution

Chemical Safety Software was tasked with implementing a software solution that addressed these issues efficiently, maintaining current and accurate chemical inventories labeled and stored safely, utilizing barcode labels and smart phones and tablets to easily update information and streamlining the hazardous waste disposal process.

The solution provided by Chemical Safety was the implementation of processes centered around our comprehensive chemical management software, Environmental Management Systems (EMS).

Chemical Safety configured EMS on a cloud-server, transferred location, chemical and waste data from disparate data sources into a single database, cross-referenced the chemicals with Safety Data Sheets and GHS information and trained lab and research personnel on ways to update information using smartphones and tablets quickly and easily.

The solution was well received by all involved within the company as well as the local regulator who praised the organization for their accuracy in reporting.
