There are chemicals used in laboratories with higher toxicity levels, severe fire and explosion potential and occupational health hazards. Though the quantities are small, these types of chemicals used by educational institutes for research activities possess higher risk levels and hence, require specialized chemical risk management requirements for each chemical. Educational institutes can prepare their lab management procedures, design fire and explosion risk management processes as well as exposure control requirements during testing activities through CloudSDS. Further CloudSDS provides a complete solution providing guidelines for chemical storage facility maintenance, institute staff training and personal protective equipment selection for the staff. During the research activities, these safety data sheets are used to predefine characteristics of newly synthesized materials and experimental processes to be followed. Further the waste management procedure also can be managed referring to CloudSDS advanced AI solution.
CloudSDS is a good platform for educators as well as students to learn and research about chemicals and chemical safety management. Having subscription and providing access to CloudSDS for science background students would raise awareness and provide technical know-how on chemical handling.
