Alcumus Sypol announce system update to COSHH Management System

Alcumus Sypol, the UK’s provider of COSHH management solutions, has created a software update for its COSHH Management system (CMS), to further assist organisations to safeguard their staff and comply with COSHH legislation in an effective way.

The CMS is an online management tool that helps organisations control the use of hazardous substances more efficiently. It also aims to recommend companies with safer substitutes and automatically updates assessments in line with legislative and regulatory changes.

Other features include access to a user-friendly system that enables more than 750,000 COSHH assessments.

Alcumus conducted a client engagement project, to help the company gain valuable information on how its clients were using the system. This research helped it developed an extensive software overhaul to its CMS, complete with several 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.

Director of Alcumus Sypol, Moyna Merrison, expressed that “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”.

This new update also coincides with Alcumus Sypol’s 40th anniversary, demonstrating the company’s extensive knowledge and experience within the health and safety industry.  With a range of recognised organisations utilising the advice and software provided by Alcumus Sypol, including the CMS, training courses, and workplace monitoring services, the update and anniversary highlights the company’s versatility and adaptability.

“It’s perfect timing that this update coincides with our anniversary, as it demonstrates how far we have come as a business and how our software grows from strength to strength, adapting to our clients’ needs” added Merrison.
