Automating Hazard Information Extraction from Safety Data Sheets

December 3, 2020 - Online

This webinar will be hosted by our partner S-IN Soluzioni Informatiche.

Find out how to automate the extraction of hazard information from thousands of Safety Data Sheets (SDS). We’ll show you how you can remove the need for manual work by automatically gathering and harmonizing text-based information. Using text mining and string manipulation in KNIME Analytics Platform, the recovery of risk phrases, which is requested by Regulators, is ensured.  

What are SDS?

Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are standardized documents chemical manufacturers use to communicate chemical hazard information to chemical handlers. They typically contain chemical properties, health and environmental hazards, protective measures, as well as safety precautions for storing, handling, and transporting chemicals.
Chemical handlers extract information from SDS by reading the section of interest. Such a manual process is not effective when the Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) manager needs to gather hazard information about all chemicals used in the company to develop an adequate risk management plan.

Regulators are pushing companies to harmonize and gather this information and make it available to anyone who works with chemical substances, such as synthetic or analytical chemists.
