4 Warning Signs That a Chemical Inventory System May Not Be Able to Meet Your Needs

Posted by Matt Segal on Feb 27, 2019 10:13:00 AM

When you’re reviewing different chemical inventory systems, you need to be able to spot the bad ones quickly.

Not knowing which red flags signal potential problems can lead to a lot of wasted time, money, and energy. Much like buying a car, if you're not careful, you could end up with a lemon.

To help you weed out the wrong system, here are four must-check warning signs to look for when you're purchasing chemical inventory software.

The Advantages of a Good Chemical Inventory System

Posted by Matt Segal on Feb 20, 2019 11:18:04 AM

Maintaining an accurate chemical inventory is a never-ending job, and one with little margin for error.

That’s why a chemical inventory system is a must for any organization looking to take control of their chemical inventory.

A good chemical inventory system offers a number of advantages that will help you simplify chemical ordering, storage, use, and reporting while reducing the potential for human error. While there may be different ways of reaching these effects, if your system isn’t hitting these notes, it should be a sign that something isn’t working right.

Here are three major advantages of a good chemical inventory system:

Protect Your Researchers & Data with a Government Software Solution

Posted by Kris Richards on Feb 5, 2019 10:07:53 AM

Today's federally funded research programs are innovative and fast-paced. But the software they're using isn't.

That's because most laboratory safety, inventory, and reporting software simply doesn't meet federal security guidelines — which means it's not an option for government agencies.

Instead, they’re stuck with decades old software that does not improve and only becomes more obsolete as time goes on.

Getting information out of these outdated systems is like pulling teeth. Researchers spend too much time on tasks that take them away from their research, and EHS teams spend too much time on tasks that take them away from meaningfully improving safety.

In fact, our risk analyses show that EHS staff are forced to waste as much as 50% of their time on administrative tasks that software should be doing for them.

BioRAFT changes all that.

Neglecting Laboratory Priorities, Practices, and Training: A Risk Not Worth Taking

Posted by Matt Segal on Jan 24, 2019 10:40:03 AM

In science, some risks are worth the rewards — like the risk of trying a bold, new approach to a problem. These risks can lead to great discoveries and improve the lives of those around us.

Other risks are not worth taking — like the risk of neglecting safety and, specifically, the risk of neglecting proper priorities, practices, and training.

Ignoring these basic principles can have serious consequences for your researchers and your organization as a whole. But fixing them is no simple task.

How to Unlock Resources for Your EHS Software Purchase

Posted by Kris Richards on Nov 8, 2018 3:47:18 PM

A few months ago, we met with the EHS director at a university research program (let's call him Greg).

As we talked with Greg about how hard it was to keep up with the pace of research and how much time EHS staff and researchers were spending on administrative tasks, it became clear that his university had outgrown its current software system.

Then Greg brought up a problem that almost all universities and research institutes experience, and one that's also easily solvable:

"We just don't have the funding we need for new software," he said. "How can we get senior management to give us more resources?"

Our advice: The resources are already there, you just need to know how to unlock them.
