Your Chemical Footprint Matters!

Introducing ChemAlert 5.
Integrated technology platform for managing
Chemical Footprint, Compliance and Reputational Risk

How We Got Here

With 7.4 billion of us living on the planet we, as ingenious creatures of innovation have created an unnatural world to ensure our own survival on our overburdened planet.

Not content with what we found, we became capable of shaping our future and our own world.

We did not realise the earth’s supply was not infinite.

Today, 90% of our everyday environment is our own creation; chemicals, manufacturing and processes that help to make us more of everything - more comfortable, warmer, cooler, fitter, better, stronger.

We have innovated to make our food last longer, grow faster, taste better. To help us survive in this natural world.

We want our lives to be easier. But at what cost?

Why We Should Care

At the cost to our health, our climate, the environment, to our children’s future. At a cost to our natural world.

The decisions we have made in it, and the management of this created world of ours, has affected every single life form on this planet.

And not always for the best.
› 4 million tonnes of toxic chemicals released into the environment
› 2.7 million tonnes of Bisphenol A released into our atmosphere
› 4.9 million deaths each year attributed to exposure to hazardous chemicals
› Asthma rates in children increased by 77%
It has come time for us to engage our human ingenuity yet again to bring harmony between the natural world and the one we have created.

We Can Change

Today, man made technology can help rectify and harmonise our place in the natural world.

We have the knowledge, experience, expertise and foresight to avoid the mistakes of the past. We can influence the footprints of the future.

We are making it possible for organisations to benchmark, manage and minimise chemical footprint while simultaneously meeting our compliance needs.

At RMT, our Science and Technology teams are leading the field in research on chemicals safety and continuing to create solutions to help organisations address both current and future risks.

As the custodians of planet earth today, we have inherited the past but now have the opportunity to create a better future.

How Can We Help?

The critical impact that chemical toxicants can have on human and environmental health is driving stringent new changes to the global regulatory framework.

Organisations are therefore required to responsibly manage products within their supply chain that contain Chemicals of High Concern (CoHC).

To enable clients to respond efficiently to these increased levels of transparency, whilst managing their compliance and reputational risks, RMT has developed the revolutionary new ChemAlert Chemical Footprint Management System and Mobile Solution.

We Can Change

› Regulators and markets are demanding safer alternatives with significantly lower chemical footprints.

› The critical impact that toxicants can have on human and environmental health is already driving organisations to tightly control products within their supply chain that contain Chemicals of High Concern (CoHC).

› The above process and new toolsets within ChemAlert provide an efficient platform for managing your Chemical Footprint.

How ChemAlert Supports Us

Independent Research

ChemAlert is supported by a full-time team of university qualified Toxicologists, Chemists, Environmental Scientists, Industrial Hygienists and Safety Experts who evaluate every SDS before it’s added to the database.

ChemAlert is more than a software system, it’s the depth of knowledge and research available through the experienced professionals in our Science team. Our Science team is continuously researching emerging scientific data from REACH, NICNAS, HSDB and other relevant scientific sources to provide detailed ingredient toxicological data complimentary to each SDS.

Not just the information you’re required to have, but ALL the information you need to make the safest possible decisions about the chemicals in your workplace.

Quality SDSs

ChemAlert provides users access to a constantly maintained quality database of current, original manufacturer’s SDSs. The team at RMT continually check with manufacturers for updated SDSs and our Auto Product Update (APU) engine ensures all users are automatically updated when new or updated SDSs are reviewed by our Scientific team.

ChemAlert does NOT provide generic, transcribed or off-the-shelf reports. Instead, the original manufacturer’s SDS is provided in conjunction with complementary ChemAlert Reports, compiled by our team of qualified Scientists.

Toxicity & Regulatory Data

ChemAlert not only gives users access to original manufacturer’s SDSs for hundreds of thousands of products, but also independent research from many local and international sources, all in one powerful, user friendly application. Users will have access to comprehensive toxicology data on products and ingredients, providing all of the information required to maximise chemical awareness, ensuring the best chemical products are selected, handled and stored in the safest possible way.

On-Site Risk Assessments

In Australia, the WHS Act and Regulations require the elimination of health and safety risks so far as is reasonably practicable, and if it is not reasonably practicable to do so, to minimise those risks.

To assist in complying with these obligations, our team of Risk Assessors have the expertise to understand the chemical hazards and risks associated with your business, and document measures to eliminate or minimise risks to health and safety.

Our safety management processes are based on steps set out in Safe Work Australia’s Code of Practice on How to Manage Work Health and Safety Risks.

SDS Authoring & Hosting

RMT authors and maintains Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) for thousands of chemical manufacturers and suppliers. Our SDSs are authored to the highest standard, complying with all relevant legislative standards and supplied in a globally recognised format.

All SDSs are compiled and verified in-house by a team of qualified Scientists, Hygienists and Toxicologists. We ensure SDSs are automatically updated to comply with mandatory review periods and changes in regulatory classifications.

We also provide an optional, user-friendly SDS Hosting service through which our SDS Authoring clients can easily make their SDSs available online to all potential distributors and end users. You don’t need a ChemAlert subscription to use our SDS authoring or hosting services.
