Readers' Choice Award Winner's Badge

Based on this award, readers agree: SDS RiskAssist is the better way to manage chemicals in the workplace

Rillea Technologies is thrilled to announce that our SDS RiskAssist web app has won a 2018 Readers’ Choice Award from Canadian Occupational Safety magazine.

SDS RiskAssist is revolutionizing chemical management practices by making it quick and easy to organize, access and utilize safety data sheets with one comprehensive, cost-effective digital solution.

“We are incredibly honoured to receive this Readers’ Choice Award for SDS RiskAssist so soon after coming to market,” said Lisa Hallsworth, CEO and founder of Rillea Technologies. “It attests to the difference SDS RiskAssist is making helping organizations get on top of all the data and requirements necessary for the safe use of chemicals in the workplace.

SDS RiskAssist puts this information at their fingertips for employee safety and regulatory compliance, while dramatically reducing the time spent on this otherwise monumental task.”

Hallsworth drew upon her deep experience in the chemical manufacturing business to develop a better way to manage chemicals in the workplace: SDS RiskAssist organizes all data sheets in a dedicated e-binder and provides secure, cloud-based access across desktop and all mobile devices to:

  • Quickly assess and mitigate risk (instantly lists hazards and exposure limits)
  • Simplify handling – add your safety instructions for handling, storage and use and share information and work instructions, such as personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements, with all employees
  • Track Compliance for WHMIS 2015, use of designated substances and exposure limits.

NEW features are now available to make it even easier for organizations to manage their chemical inventory, such as being able to tag with a single click all the corrosive materials that require the same gloves for handling.

Every year three million Canadians are exposed to carcinogens in the workplace. SDS RiskAssist helps prevent occupational illness by giving employees consistent mobile-friendly summaries when and where they need them. It also helps organizations comply with the December 1, 2018 deadline for bringing all safety data sheets up to date to the new WHMIS standard.

Contact us to turn your WHMIS 2015 transition efforts into a sound chemicals management system that will save you time and money while improving occupational health in your organization!
