I see IOSH Magazine are touting in their newsletter a publication with the title "Managing Chemical Risk" and subtitle "From Excel To The Cloud".

But you don't manage chemical risk using Excel, or the cloud, or any other form of information technology.

You manage chemical risk by understanding the processes that chemicals are being used in and making sure you have the right chemicals, the right storage conditions, the right equipment and the right practices.

I'm not at all attracted to read what I suspect is an covert advert for some IT system or other.

We have seen IOSH magazine does not do COSHH well. They seem to consistently get the wrong end of the stick, not understand that the core concept is risk assessment  for your work activities not collating SDS sheets (yes the ‘S’ is redundant) and its about processes not substances.

while the IOSH mag is bad has anyone looked at SHP recently? i keep meaning to cancel my email headline update as every so called topic they look at these days is a thinly disguised sales tactic!

Thing is apart from the advertisers there are very few contributions of meaningful content.

Even news papers are taking so much longer to open on-line due to the sheer quantity of ads & sponsored content they try and push at readers.
