Making data available on the Intranet
With increasingly networked corporate divisions, the desire to implement access to hazardous substance documents from different departments or employee groups is also growing. Fast, efficient – and, above all, largely paperless – this is where eposWeb with its web browser-based application comes in.
Using the browser-based solution, employees can access the latest data at any time via the intranet.
FUNCTIONS AT A GLANCE
eposWeb can be accessed from any web browser via the intranet. The user searches for documents in the epos Hazardous Substance Manager database via the convenient search mask.
Documents can be displayed, saved as PDF or printed:
- Safety data sheets
> Display of documents
- Technical data sheets
> Display of documents
- Operating instructions (hazardous materials/bio materials/environmental protection/machinery operating instructions)
> Create, edit, print
> Create, edit, delete
> Assignment of hazardous substances register and operating instructions
> Creating reports of the job description and the
list of hazardous substances
- Easily configurable individual layout
- Web interface in German-English possible (depending on license)

Our customer “Kiel” produces generics and has been working with the epos Substance-Manager since 2005. The company and its 5 branches had a decentralized hazardous substance management. They were faced with the task of concentrating this at their headquarters.
“It was not only the organizational effort that we wanted to get a better grip on. In addition to more safety in the workplace, we also wanted a “uniform look” on the outside.
Today, our product safety department produces many hazardous substance documents centrally for all sites. We have well over 600 safety data sheets and a large number of hazardous substance labels to manage. Once created, these are available as PDF files to an assigned group of employees via the intranet application.
We also create sample operating instructions centrally for our occupational safety department. If required, operating instructions are created by responsible employees in the branches via eposWeb and assigned to specific workstations. In addition, each location maintains its own hazardous substance directory(s) on the common platform.
From an economic point of view, this step was equally a milestone for us. The central maintenance of the epos Hazardous Substance Manager database significantly reduced our resources. And thanks to the efficient networking of our hazardous substance management system, colleagues have relevant documents – in a layout that conforms to company standards – safely under control at all times”.
