Hmmmm.  Good idea as long a plain old fashioned words are also on the label. Firemen, EMS, rescue and recovery workers also must know what is in the containers as well. materials.

The solution is to have the chemical manufacturers add a simple UPC code to their labels (or better yet, an IR tag.)  Can you imagine walking into a lab, waving a device and having an instant inventory?  The technology exists - why every other item for sale on the plant has a UPC and chemicals don't is something I can't understand.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] tool for lab chemical inventory

Who can help the following question?  With GHS is coming next year, how to manage the labelling elements is a pressing issue:
I am looking for a simple tool to use for maintaining a lab chemical inventory which automatically provides GHS classification (Danger and H&P phrases) when provided with minimal information eg CAS no.
Does anyone have a solution? SAP EHS is somewhat of an overkill and not very lean.
