safety data sheet software

Prometheus

Despite complex and continuously evolving regulatory requirements, it’s never been easier for companies to author and manage their own Safety Data Sheets - provided they have the right software.

A Tailor-Made Solution

Prometheus is the perfect solution for creating, managing and distributing GHS-compliant Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for all major commercial markets. It utilises fully integrated regulatory phrases and classification content libraries, in more than 40 languages, to deliver a global, user-friendly, SDS authoring and distribution platform.

Prometheus can be used independently, as your ideal Safety Data Sheet solution, or integrated with our companion products to solve all your hazardous chemical documentation and labelling needs - without the need for dual entry of data.

Easy to Configure and Customise

Prometheus is simple and easy to use, as well as being highly customisable. Users have the ability to quickly build and manage a library of their own Safety Data Sheets.

Prometheus allows you to create templates describing the basic layout of your SDS’s, including different layouts for different markets/customers, and to build up your SDS’s on screen by filling in the appropriate elements – in most cases by picking standard phrases from a pre-installed list.

Prometheus is flexible to configure, and now includes our new Poison Centre XML export feature where datasheet-like documents can be written to XML files, conforming to the format specified for delivery in EU countries.

29 Languages at your Fingertips

Translate and update with ease

Prometheus enables you to create, and publish, multi-language SDSs in a matter of minutes, without in-depth regulatory expertise, and when the requirements change, you can revise and update your SDSs with ease.

Available languages

Once a SDS has been created in English, it can be converted to any other available language at the click of a button. Prometheus comes with standard regulatory phrases in a wide range of languages so that you can generate the SDS’s in the languages of your choice:

English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Spanish, Portuguese, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Polish, Russian, Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Bulgarian, Romanian, Greek, Turkish, Korean (South), Mandarin Chinese (Simplified), Mandarin Chinese (Traditional), Arabic, Malay, Czech, English (US), Slovak, Slovene.

Territories

As well as creating data sheets in different languages, Prometheus allows you to create and maintain data sheets that are unique for different territories. For example, you may wish to include, or exclude, certain data in a French SDS for France, but not for French-speaking Canada, or you may want to use different supplier addresses and logos for different subsidiaries.

If you don’t ship abroad you can simply purchase the English only version with the option of inserting additional languages at a later date.
