If you’re a manufacturer of various chemical products, then you already know the importance of safety and the means to encourage it. You probably already know a thing or two about safety labels and Safety Data Sheets, or SDS for short. An SDS is created to provide detailed information regarding the properties of chemicals, potential hazards, and how to use them safely.

These documents are carefully crafted according to a standard that is called the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, or GHS for short. In order to make sure that your documentation always respects the standard, you could use an authoring tool called GHSAuth.

With GHSAuth you don’t have to keep track of the various sections and subsections in your documentation. Each of the 16 sections required by the GHS is presented in a separate tab; all you have to do is fill out the blanks by providing the correct information.

The program is very easy-to-use; basically, it's a word processor with a very clear purpose. Most sections just allow you to write and format your text, but there are also two exceptions. In subsection 2.2, the application offers you a series of pictograms that you can add to the SDS. In subsection 3.1, where you must specify the composition of your product, you can select the chemical components from a long list.

If you’re a manufacturer of chemical products, then this application can certainly make the writing of your documentation more efficient. You may also use the application to create safety labels for your company. GHSAuth is a free tool, but you can choose to pay extra if you wish to add your company’s logo to the document, or if you want to remove the "Powered by GHSAuth.com" text from your documents and labels.
