How to keep your company out of the 24 hour news cycle

Every research organization, from individual labs to multinational groups, strives to promote the advancement of science while ensuring a safe environment for their workers. A key step in maintaining lab safety via EPA and OSHA compliance is chemical inventory management.

According to a recent survey of EHS Professionals 33.5% of respondents cited exposure to toxic chemicals and chemical management as their greatest concerns. This is especially true for larger organizations: the complexity of tracking thousands of individual containers is overwhelming when managed by home grown, legacy, or Excel-based systems. Not knowing what is in a given cabinet ā€“ or how old it is ā€“ creates substantial risk for both researchers and the entire organization.

Attend this webinar and learn how three well known organizations have used real-time tracking of hazardous chemicals to cut their chemical inventory by 50%; correct current and avoid future hazardous situations; and realize the cost of an inventory system can dwarf the cost of an actual disaster and the negative publicity that follows.

Without a centralized system to alert researchers, ensuring safety becomes an almost insurmountable challenge.

Register today and learn how proper chemical inventory management can help avert disaster ā€“ and the costs when corners are cut.
