What is Backpack?

Backpack is Chemwatch’s online SDS management system. It is a user-friendly way to manage and update SDS for your workplace chemicals in a comprehensive online library, with options for offline and hardcopy access. SDS are updated weekly by our web-crawlers so you can be assured that the SDS you use are up to date and compliant. Backpack provides multilingual eLearning and IT support, and the interface is available in over 49 languages.

Accessible and Buildable SDS Management

The Backpack app allows you to set up SDS folders to suit your needs and grow with you – account for physical sites, create an easy access SDS library for your staff, and more. Quickly search our Collection for the SDS you require, then add to your own custom library in the application. SDS in your library are regularly updated and differences are shown in regular comparison reports.

Backpack is only the beginning of your chemical management solutions. Chemwatch also offers additional services to complement your SDS library as your company’s needs grow.
