Verisk 3E's award winning solutions lead the industry.
- Maintain an accurate inventory of chemicals and associated SDSs

How effective are the tools, systems, data and processes you have in place to ensure workplace safety and compliance?
Effectively managing chemical and workplace safety has never been more challenging. Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), compliance, industrial hygiene, legal, safety and other teams are struggling with complex and continually changing regulatory obligations in multiple jurisdictions, an increasing number of language and format requirements for hazard communication and lack of access to updated data when and where they need it.
- When an inspector arrives at your facility, can staff produce an accurate chemical inventory on the spot?
- Are your SDSs and labels up to date?
- How much time do you spend chasing SDSs from suppliers?
- Are you managing duplicative and conflicting SDS repositories in multiple facilities?
- If you have a homegrown SDS management tool, can it scale and manage revisions?
- When a spill occurs or a question regarding shipping or disposal of hazardous materials arises, do workers know what to do and who to call?
