digital Safety data sheets

Chemparser addresses all its efforts exclusively on Safety Data Sheets  digitalization.

It means to extract from a Safety Data Sheet concepts (signifiers and signifieds)

A True Knowledge
thanks to queryable data

The difference between digital data and analogue information is huge

What you can do with SDSs digital information

Thanks to the digitalization process, you can create a  Database where all of the information about your substances and mixtures are stored, codified and searchable.

It will allows you to take decisions based on data, how meeting your obligations to comply with GHS – REACH & CLP regulation or perform impact analyses based on H and P phrases across your Chemical Inventory or browse and zoom into any mixtures to discover detailed information regarding the components or even make build automatically simplified Safety Data Sheets for your workers.

Govern your SDSs portfolio
