Setting up and managing a chemical inventory can be a difficult task, even when you think you have done your research or have prepared yourself with a spreadsheet or list to follow. The difficulty comes when you begin attempting to cross-reference chemicals with the
vendor SDS, which may create significant problems if you are unable to do so.
Tracking chemicals in the workplace using chemical inventory software requires detailed knowledge of all possible "hiding places". Chemicals can be found in the strangest places and they can be easily overlooked.
It is not always obvious that certain items can also be considered “chemicals" – did you
know that welding rods and certain building materials (ie. insulation batts, bricks) may be hazardous if exposed to by-products? As a result, you may not be able to perform
risk assessments for the whole site.
Chemicals and corrosive products often interact explosively with other chemicals, so storage locations may be a problem if you need to have multiple chemicals with a certain distance between them. The chemical inventory must identify the distance between chemicals so that appropriate incompatibilities reporting can take place.

*Consumer products are products that do not require a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) when purchased by a consumer in a retail setting, however,
some of these products do require an SDS when they are brought into the workplace (example: paints, hand soaps, inks)
