is anyone utilizing E-SDS Systems?  Which One?  Is it a co-op with the Fire Department?
Posted:  03 Aug 2017 18:01
We use MSDSonline. It is not a co-op with the fire department. You can search their database for the chemicals that you need and add them to your e-binder. If they do not have the SDS that you are looking for you can upload them. If SDSs are updated in their database and they are in your e-binder you receive notification to post them and replace your old SDS. All of the old copied are archived. They claim to review the SDSs in the database every 2 or 4 years. There are features where you can add a lot of information on a summary page, e.g. locations, groups, PPE, risk phrases, safety phrases, etc. You can print secondary container labels. It has the capability to be used at several locations and track inventory.
They seem to be interested in user suggestions and attempting to address them.

On the down side: For some chemicals I have found a lot of SDSs in the database for a given manufacturer that have the same date making it difficult to determine which is the correct one to select. PPE, risk phrases, safety phrases, etc. need to be manually populated so this could be a lot of upfront work.
