Dec. 16, 2003: MCAA Introduces MSDS Management System
According to MCAA, MSDS BinderWorks was created by mechanical contractors and is designed to enable contractors to:
To simplify the search for industry-specific MSDSs, the products being used by mechanical contractors and suppliers were inspected and documented. The end result is a focused, industry-specific database comprised of over 2,000 products, says the association. A partnership with MSDSonlineâ„¢ also gives MSDS BinderWorks subscribers access to that database, which contains more than a million additional MSDSs.
Subscribers have the capability to create unlimited custom MSDS inventories via the Internet. The customized electronic inventory can be sent to a printing company, Matt Parrott and Sons, for printing and delivery, says MCAA.
MSDS BinderWorks also features a "stay organized" indexing system. Each MSDS in the industry-specific database is assigned a control number that appears in the upper right-hand corner. This number allows subscribers to maintain organized binders despite the regular insertion of MSDSs.
Annual subscriptions to MSDS BinderWorks are $425 for MCAA and MCA affiliated association members, $650 for nonmembers. There is an extra charge for hard copy binders based on the size of the custom MSDS inventory. More information is available online at www.mcaa.org and www.mcaofiowa.org/binderworks, or by calling 515-334-2616.
