Effective inventory management involves getting the right inventory to the right place at the right time. For the lab, that means having the right compound at the right workbench in the right amount when the material needs to be used for research.
When a lab’s chemical inventory management is out of control, the inventory data is inaccurate and chemicals won’t be on hand or in the correct location – causing confusion on the lab bench and often noncompliance with numerous regulations.
Companies that utilize chemicals in their labs and their manufacturing processes must manage those chemicals in a safe environment. To do this, a system for managing information about the chemical inventory and safety data should be established and maintained.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Optimize chemical safety and inventory data
- Automate audit trails and regulatory reports
- Manage and mitigate the amount of chemicals on-site
- Reduce inventory management costs
