At every level of chemical inventory management, accountability is crucial. One of the most reliable ways to track and report chemicals is with barcoding. SolvChem Custom Packaging Division provides chemical barcoding services to ensure our products and customers comply with industry regulations. Learn more about the benefits of a quality chemical barcoding system and find out why SolvChem Custom Packaging Division is a trusted name for safety, regulatory compliance and much more.
The Process Behind Chemical Barcoding Services
Container labels have long protected workers and consumers from the dangers of handling something unknown. Yet standard labels have their limits in terms of information that can be displayed in a small place. Chemical service providers like SolvChem Custom Packaging Division have adopted barcode systems under which every chemical in an inventory system can be accurately identified.
How does it work? Each barcode is uniquely configured for scanning. A mechanical scanner can instantly identify the contents of a container without the risk of human error. The scanned barcode directs to a database with far more comprehensive chemical information so that label space is not an issue.
We use a tested barcode system that logs all useful information related to every chemical we house.
The Benefits of Barcodes on Chemical Containers
Tracking your chemical is just the start. Sure, barcodes help us keep track of the comings and goings of chemical inventory, but the overall benefits are far more substantial. To name three:
- Safety: A big challenge in the chemical blending and handling industry is worker safety. When hazardous chemicals are involved, you don’t have a lot of room for error. Barcodes eliminate the guesswork by giving workers immediate access to a whole host of safety information, such as how the chemical might react in a certain environment, what it shouldn’t be near and what to do if exposed.
- Emergency response: In an emergency, responders don’t have the luxury of time. By labeling chemical containers with barcodes, emergency workers can more quickly understand a situation and respond accordingly.
- Efficiency: Barcode scanning is also a boon to customers. Manual logging of chemicals is time-consuming — compared with the near instantaneous process of scanning a barcode. That means chemicals can be located, identified and moved much more quickly and without sacrificing safety best practices.
At the end of the day, what benefits SolvChem Custom Packaging Division also benefits our customers.
