QSI’s Clive Collier commented “RisQ offers faster, more accurate risk assessments, aids compliance with legislation and helps to improve a company’s health and safety record. We believe that small and medium sized businesses are not well served in terms of cost or system capability in this application area, and that’s why we’ve extended the scope of our rental operation – although large organisations can benefit too: why spend more if you don’t have to?”
RisQ will appeal particularly to those seeking to comply with COSHH regulations and create comprehensive risk assessments within the working environment. All relevant details of each material – including its CAS and EC reference numbers, physical and chemical properties and of course specific hazard data complete with the appropriate hazard symbols, are held in the system’s database, enabling the production of Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) whenever required. Other data held, such as supplier and delivery records and information on storage and location, enables the total inventory of hazardous materials to be viewed at any time. Using this comprehensive data, RisQ uses functionality consistent with the guidelines of the Royal Society of Chemistry to create detailed Risk Assessments for each material.
