All Systems Go Following COSHH Software Overhaul


A provider of COSHH management software solutions has completed a major update to their system to safeguard employees and comply with legislation.

Alcumus Sypol's COSHH Management System (CMS) is an online management tool that helps organisations control the use of hazardous substances more efficiently. Users benefit from access to more than 750,000 professionally written COSHH assessments and a system that enables fully compliant assessments in minutes. The CMS recommends safer substitutes and automatically updates assessments in line with legislative and regulatory changes.

Following a comprehensive client engagement project, carried out to help the company gain insights into how its clients were using the system, Alcumus implemented an extensive software overhaul complete with a number of updates and additional features.

These updates include:

  • Homepage redesign - to allow for ease of site navigation.

  • Enhanced search functionality - to increase speed and simplicity.

  • All-new system notifications - to keep users informed of their actions and duties.

  • Introduction of a library of ‘How-To’ videos - to act as a client training tool.

  • Mobile device compatibility - allowing users to get instant COSHH information remotely.

  • Easy access to reporting and analytical data.

Commenting on the latest update, Director of Alcumus Sypol, Moyna Merrison, said: “Our CMS is one of the most advanced COSHH risk solutions available and is used and relied upon by thousands of safety professionals around the world. We are continuously aiming to improve our systems to provide organisations with simple and effective ways to manage hazardous substances throughout their business.
