2019 COS Mag Award Winner's Badge SDS Management Solutions

A HUGE THANK YOU to clients and supporters who once again agree that SDS RiskAssist is an awesome tool to proactively manage workplace chemicals! We are so excited to receive this award for the second year in a row!

Rillea Technologies is excited to announce that our SDS RiskAssist web platform has won a 2019 Readers’ Choice Award from Canadian Occupational Safety magazine.

The announcement comes just in time to share Rillea’s release of SDS RiskAssist V3.0, with features such as auto-tagging, multi-layered locations, single sign on, a bilingual platform and options for additional chemical list reporting. 

“For the second year in a row, SDS RiskAssist has earned this award from clients and supporters and that means so much to our team.” said Lisa Hallsworth, CEO and founder of Rillea Technologies. “We are working hard to make responsible chemicals consumption and management easier for all organizations. The World Health Organization puts sound management of chemicals and waste at the centre of achieving the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development goals.  But the biggest obstacle to making this happen is the lack of tools for managers to identify their chemical hazards, assess and mitigate their risks. You can’t control what you don’t see.

SDS RiskAssist digitizes safety data sheets and re-organizes the data the way a chemical safety expert would. Its dashboard makes it easy for busy safety managers to quickly identify hazards and prioritize risk assessment activities.

Essentially, we help safety managers get their arms around their chemical use so they can responsibly consume chemicals and safely manage their related hazards.”
