platform that prevents incompatible
mixing of chemical waste during the disposal process

Chemishield removes the need for users to think about chemical compatibility
when disposing of chemical waste in a laboratory environment, safeguarding
people and plant

About us

WHY

OUR PLATFORM

A pioneering solution

Born out of a chemical accident in a laboratory, where an analyst mixed incompatible chemicals together leading to devestating consequences. Luckily, this guy has lived to tell the tale and after a eureka moment, set out on a mission to safeguard people from the hazards of the chemical waste disposal process.

This cloud based platform greatly enhances safety in the laboratory whilst also aligning with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of hazardous chemicals and the communication of these hazards to users through labelling.

OUR MISSION

Safety & compliance

The majority of laboratory accidents and near misses go unrecorded. Chemishield ensures that personnel who work in laboratories go home in the same condition they arrived in. Chemishield’s innovative software enables laboratories globally to compliantly and efficiently roll out the platform across multi sites that enables optimum benefits for personnel and facility.

Chemishield ensures full compliance with not only the CLP Regulations but also the Waste Framework Directive, or Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament, which provides for a general framework of waste management requirements setting out the basic waste management definitions for the EU. Chemishield ensures full 'Cradle to Grave' tracability throughout the waste generation and disposal process.
