How AkzoNobel is Addressing Corporate Requirements for Lab Safety and Chemical Inventory Management. Hosted by AIHA

From cleaner houses to new roads, AkzoNobel is behind the development of many of today’s most significant safe and smart products. To do so, they keep 500+ researchers busy on a wide variety of applications from polymers to surfactants. But accommodating such a variety comes with workflow and management challenges.

One particular challenge for AkzoNobel’s Surface Chemistry division was managing the 10,000+ chemical containers used for research. Their previous methodology was no longer sustainable and had been hampering the lab’s ability to manage the chemicals, address safety regulations, and contain the associated costs.

Learn about the Surface Chemistry’s decision to implement a digital chemical inventory system, how they went about it, and the results one year later. Gain insight on how the new system is addressing corporate requirements, as well as a look back over the benefits that have accrued since implementation.

Viewers will learn:

  • Migrating from legacy methods to sustainable processes
  • Aligning the new lab system with corporate initiatives
  • Getting upper management approval and buy-in
  • Introducing workflow changes to lab researchers
  • Improvements to expect post-implementation
