One risk assessment for several products

This article has been translated with machine translation.

If you have products that are used in the same process/activity, or if products have close to identical risks connected to it, you have the option to make a group risk assessment, i.e. put several products in the same risk assessment.

You find these risk assessments in the same list as single product risk assessments. See example in below picture, where more than three products are included:


To create a risk assessment with more than one products, go to Risk assessment > Click New or choose a product in the list under Products without risk assessment.

Choose which products you want to include by choosing them in the dropdown next to products. If the product is inventoried in the current department, you will see the product in the dropdown menu. If the product is not inventoried, choose Other products at the bottom and search for the product you want to include.

If you select multiple products for your risk assessment, iChemistry will present important data from products, displaying all combined pictograms for example. 

If Product 1 is Corrosive and Flammable, and Product 2 is Harmful and Harmful to health, all those pictograms combined will be displayed and transferred to the activity based safety sheet:

By clicking on Basic data in the risk assessment menu, you can access information about hazards, usage locations, recommended safety equipment and much more, for all products included, which comes in handy when creating the handling instructions for the activity based safety sheet.

Base the activity based safety sheet on one product's SDS

If the risk assessment involves multiple products, you should select the product upon which the risk assessment (and the activity based safety sheet) should be based. A general tip is to select the product with the most hazardous information.

When creating the Handling instructions, you can use the information from one of the product's SDS's. If you want to use the information directly from the SDS, choose which product's SDS you want to collect the information from the dropdown menu and click on the transfer button to the right:
