Oil & Gas Chemical SDS Management Solutions

Chemscape’s sdsBinders product has been the SDS Management software of choice for the 1 in 3 Canadian oil and gas companies. Chemscape’s sdsBinders product is used for oil and gas companies who explore, drill, upgrade, process, store, market and transport crude oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids and sulphur. Most of these companies are based in Calgary, although their activities extend across the country, into the United States and internationally.

WHMIS Compliance & Chemical Safety with sdsBinders

Compliance is critical to the operations of our Oil and Gas customers and having an SDS Management Service that is responsive to their needs makes sdsBinders their SDS Management Software of choice. Many features in sdsBinders have been developed based on feedback from our oil and gas customers, such as:

  • The sdsBinders mobile App which keeps SDS available to their truck drivers while hauling crude and hazardous products in remote areas like the Rocky Mountains. 

  •  The Oil and Gas industry’s focus on continuous training inspired sdsBinders’ free library of tool box talk health videos on working safely with chemicals.  

  • The sdsBinders’ hazard communication SmartChart® was designed for use in high hazard tasks like refinery turnarounds.  

  • The sdsBinders custom binder was designed to allow oil and gas companies to distribute their own SDSs to their customers through a link on their website.

WHMIS & TDG Training Unique to Oil & Gas Industry Needs

Based on Chemscape’s knowledge and experience in chemical management and safety data sheet authoring our Oil and Gas customers requested Chemscape to author and produce a high-quality WHMIS and TDG online course to meet their requirements and needs.  WHIMS and Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) training is essential for employees in the oil & gas industry. Due to the environmental and physical risk associated, it is imperative that precautionary measures be taken to keep the workplace & transportation of dangerous materials safe.

Controlling Chemical Hazards with a Chemical Management Plan

As Chemscape evolves with the Oil and Gas sector, the next generation of chemical management is here with Chemscape’s CHAMP program. Industry demand for tools and technology to centralize chemical management control within organizations and generate chemical health hazard assessment data to make decisions. CHAMP is used to assess chemical hazards and assign controls as a strategy to control how chemicals are used, handled and stored in operations for the largest oil and gas companies in North America. CHAMP has been used by many drilling companies in Northwest BC to develop Exposure Control Plans and Chemical Management Programs for their drilling fluids as well as for designated substances including benzene, silica, methane and NORM.

Chemscape will continue to evolve with the innovative needs and best-in-class expectations of our oil and gas customers who look for cost-effective and reliable technology solutions to keep their operations going.
