Quentic strengthens hazardous chemical management

September 30, 2021

  • Standardized pictograms in accordance with ISO 7010 can now be integrated into safety-promoting documents
  • Dr. Mario Lenz, CPO at Quentic

With the latest software update, Quentic strengthens the international application of its Hazardous Chemicals module. The online solution for integrated HSEQ management (Health, Safety, Environment & Quality) has expanded inspection rules for hazardous good groupings to include independently configurable storage classes. The update was preceded by a flexibilization of the risk evaluation scales used for risk assessments. With these enhancements, users can map country-, industry- and company-specific use cases individually to ensure better compliance with local and international regulations alike. Quentic will be presenting the new features, as well as the recently introduced new Incidents & Observations module at A+A, the leading trade fair for occupational health and safety, held this year in Düsseldorf, Germany from October 26th to 29th.

Software as a Service vendor Quentic has announced the release of version 13.2 of its platform and app for Health, Safety, Environment and Quality management. This new update focuses on enhancements in the Hazardous Chemicals software module, which enables users across Europe to manage dangerous substances in a way that better corresponds to their local requirements. In addition, safety instructions for hazardous chemicals and the associated activities have also been optimized to meet international requirements: Standardized pictograms in accordance with ISO 7010 can now be integrated into safety-promoting documents.

Compliance across borders: Flexible risk assessments and configurable storage classes

Earlier this year, Quentic introduced flexible evaluation scales for risk assessments of hazardous chemicals to allow users across borders to be compliant with local regulations. In its newest software update, Quentic’s Hazardous Chemicals module has further expanded to include flexibly configurable storage classes for hazardous substances. Quentic users can define their own storage classes, relate them to each other in storage class matrices and thus define inspection standards for different company divisions, locations and countries. These customization options strengthen Quentic users’ capability to manage all information on hazardous and non-hazardous chemicals independent of location or industry. Use cases can be mapped individually, while ensuring compliance with local and international regulations alike. 

Uniting individual requirements and international standardization

"Quentic is one of the leading solutions providers for the entire HSEQ management spectrum and is designed to optimally meet the requirements of all industries, from medium-sized businesses to internationally operating corporations. For this reason, we focus equally on incorporating necessary international standards as well as enabling individual customer adaptions," says Dr. Mario Lenz, Chief Product Officer at Quentic. "Consequently, in addition to the new options for individual configuration, important standardizations are further integrated in Quentic. Inspection of storage amounts according to the Seveso III Directive including automatic notifications will soon also be possible even more easily in the Quentic Hazardous Chemicals module," shares Mario Lenz, giving a glimpse into future prospects. 

Meeting Quentic at the A+A trade show

The latest updates will also be presented at the leading trade fair for occupational health and safety. From October 26th to 29th, visitors to the A+A fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, can get to know the Quentic software at booth G02 in Hall 6 and experience first-hand how digital HSEQ management contributes to sustainable business management. In introducing its new Incidents & Observations module in January 2021, Quentic has also presented a new stand-alone module for reporting, auditing, analyzing and evaluating all types of HSEQ relevant events to meaningfully expand classic incident management. Together with the two subsequent updates - Quentic 13.1 and 13.2 - the company has significantly strengthened its software offering with a focus on occupational health and safety management in an international context.
