Where can I find products with exposure scenarios?
When navigating to Tools > Exposure scenario, you see the products of the selected department, that have an exposure scenario linked to them. The logic is the same as for risk assessments; all unmanaged exposure scenarios will have a flag under "Unmanaged exposure scenarios", and the rest will appear under either "General decisions on exposure scenarios" or "Department specific decisions on exposure scenarios".
At the far right of the list you will find links to SDS and exposure scenarios. If there are previous decisions, you will find them in Archive (just note that you need to be in the department where the decisions were made to be able to view the archive.)
Manage exposure scenarios in iChemistry
An exposure scenario is handled both by department and in the risk assessment. These interact, so that in the column "Type of assessment" in the exposure scenario module you see whether the decision is made for a department (the status is then called "Product", because you make the decision on product level) or in a risk assessment (status is then called "Risk assessment").
This article describes how to manage exposure scenarios on department level.
A decision for the exposure scenario can be made at an overall level, if the product is handled in the same way in several departments. If a department-specific decision is made instead, it only applies to the selected department and its sub-departments. In the column "Departments" you can see at which department the decision was made.
Possible statuses for started or completed decisions
|Exposure scenario is handled and signed.|
|Suggestions for decisions are available. Not signed.|
|Under investigation. Not signed.|
|Decision is that it does not follow the exposure scenario. It can be taken here in the exposure scenario module, and in the risk assessment module as "Not handled".|
|This symbol lets you know that there is a new document available for exposure scenario, sinceyou last handled the exposure scenario for this product.|
The reason why some rows are grey and some white, is to show you if the decision is made on current department or not. Grayed-out exposure scenarios are decisions that have been made in another department, but are valid for this department as well. If you need to make it local, for a subdepartment, just click on the product while standing on the subdepartment, and then click on Make local.
Possible statuses for Unmanaged exposure scenarios:
|Work with exposure scenario not started.|
|There is a decision in a risk assessment for the product. Click on the product name and scroll to the bottom to see the risk assessments.|
To start your work with exposure scenario, click on a product in the list. You then come to the decision page, where you can access the exposure scenario and make a decision if you follow the use cases described there.
You see where the product is inventoried, and also if there are any risk assessments connected to it. You can also add documents if necessary. The box for "Received info date" is for the date when we received the exposure scenario document from the supplier.
In the dropdown, make your decisions, then write a comment. Choose to Save or Sign the decision in the top menu.
