SDS RiskAssist™ is an indispensable tool

“SDS RiskAssist™ is revolutionary in the chemicals management solutions sector. So much more than a document management system, SDS RiskAssist™ empowered us to easily see the college's entire chemical collection by area and prioritized hazard. It has allowed us to justify the removal of over 300 obsolete and unnecessary chemicals as well as easily completing flammables reporting to the fire department. We have also been able to identify areas to reduce chemical/WHMIS training costs. SDS RiskAssist™ is an indispensable tool to have in our occupational health and safety toolkit!”
