Based on the Hazcheck Systems produced by Exis Technologies the app is a quick reference tool for those involved in the transport and handling of dangerous goods by sea.
It offers the following functionality:-
* simple interactive user interface for checking any entry in the IMDG Code dangerous goods list or index. Type in the UN Number or initial letters of a chemical name referenced in the IMDG Code and this application will provide you with details on:-
* sub-risk (if applicable)
* packing group
* applicable labels for the substance or article.
No network connection is required to access data supplied in this application, so it is accessible in any situation.
The GESTIS-Substance Database contains information for the safe handling of hazardous substances and other chemical substances at work, e.g. health effects, necessary protective measures and such in case of danger (incl. First Aid). Furthermore the user is offered information upon important physical and chemical properties for these substances as well as special statutory regulations and regulations of the German Social Accident Insurance Institutions. The available information relates to about 8,000 substances. Data are updated immediately after publication of new official regulations or after the issue of new scientific results.
The GESTIS-Substance Database is maintained by the Institut für Arbeitsschutz der Deutschen Gesetzlichen Unfallversicherung (IFA, Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance).
The GESTIS database information on occupational medicine and first aid is compiled by Prof. Dr. Heberer and his team (TOXICHEM, Leuna).
Use and Liability
The information may be used for the purpose of workers' protection, or to gain knowledge about risks emanating from chemical substances. Commercial use as well as a partial or complete transfer to other information systems is not permitted. The data of GESTIS database are compiled and updated carefully. Nevertheless, any liability is excluded.
