iChemistry updates and announcements
On Saturday the 15th of July 2023, we will update iChemistry with minor feature and stability improvements, alongside the following more significant changes explained here below.
Improvement in risk assessment
Navigate to Tools > Risk assessment
We listened to your feedback to make the risk assessment easier to handle, which has resulted in a simpler and more streamlined module. You will see a new subheading “Show additional options” in several steps, where we place functions that are not always necessary. One example is “Process category” that is only necessary for products that requires exposure scenario, and this is located under “Show additional options” to not confuse anyone who doesn’t need to consider this.
In the step called Risk evaluation, we have changed the order of the fields. The calculated risk is now shown at the bottom of the page.
In the last page before finishing the risk assessment, it will be clearer which functions are mandatory to finish before being able to click “Done”, and which functions are optional, as they are clustered below in an “Optional tasks” field.
Have a look after the 15th of July and we will be there with tooltips and guides to guide you through it directly in the risk assessment. Existing risk assessments will of course not be changed or affected.
Navigate to Settings > Open Access (optional functionality, contact your account manager if you are interested in Open Access)
Open Access lets you and your colleagues access the most important information about your products in a specific department, by scanning a QR code, simple and easy. This will help you meet the requirement to make information about the hazards of chemical products available to workers.
For those of you who already have Open Access, we have now changed the following:
You will be able to see the date when QR code is printed, on the printed sheet. The column for Department changes name to Location and if you hover over it, you can see the whole department path. Also, one new column “Created by” is added to show which user created the Open access for that department.
Navigate to iSafe > Labels
In our new label module, users will now be able to adjust font size for the text in the label manually. You can adjust the percentage of font size with larger or smaller text, depending on how much information you need to include in the label.
