ERA Environmental Management Solutions has launched an app for environmental, health and safety professionals who need to quickly access their safety data sheet database to respond to emergencies, on-site incidents, and other chemical management scenarios.
The SDS Finder App is available for android and iOS smartphones and tablets, and is free to ERA users on Google Play and the iTunes store.
It allows EHS professionals to search for any SDS they might need on the job through a secure, password-protected login. Users can quickly find their desired SDS using a variety of search options like product ID, supplier, description or keyword.
SDSs can be favorited so that they can be accessed online. The SDS Finder App can find SDSs in any format, including doc, jpg, PDF, gif, excel, PowerPoint and png.
The SDS Finder App is also designed to improve response time and effectiveness during emergencies. It can be used to email SDS data and compare material revision dates with emergency responders, suppliers, front-line employees, and executives directly from the app.
With the upcoming transition to the new Globally Harmonized System (GHS), the company says this app will be a powerful new addition to your chemical management toolkit, helping you to keep up with changes to your SDSs across your entire supply chain.
Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story said the app was free, due to an error in the press release. The app is free to ERA users.
