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

How ChemAlert Supports Us
ChemAlert is supported by a full-timeteam 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.
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
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.
Technology That Works Anytime,
To promote and enhance. To bring greater
clarity. To enable mobility and connectivity.
Using the latest industry standards,
ChemAlert works on both iPhone and
Android tablets/phones as a native application.

It is commonly said that you only get out
what you put in. However, it is all too common
for software systems to get this so very wrong.
To assist with that, ChemAlert features an
Interest Profile tool to ensure users are
notified when important information is
modified, either in-application or via email.
Combined with Analytics and Action Board
functionality, ChemAlert provides powerful
reporting and business insights.
Barcodes, QR Codes and RFID
ChemAlert is embracing clever technologies
to track inventory and quickly find safety data
using barcoding technologies. Utilising both
manufacturer barcodes or client custom
barcodes, ChemAlert enables clients to
embrace multiple forms of scanning
technology to maintain up-to-date inventory
data. From the latest data comes the
ChemAlert, a trusted name combining professional experts
with incredible technology to deliver amazing results.
Chemical Safety Audits
With greater regulatory pressure on
businesses to comply with legislation
relating to chemicals in the workplace,
it is more important than ever to review
your current procedures to ensure your
obligations are met.

safety management services delivered by experienced chemical management experts.
Whether you need a safety audit, a new SDS or help with staff training, we can tailor a
customised solution for your needs.
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.
