UNSW is in 2014 implementing a new system for the management of hazardous materials and dangerous goods (HMDG). In the Schools of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering & in the Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre this system will replace an older legacy system for chemical inventory (COSI).

  • The key component of this is Sciquest-ERM. Once fully operation, this software will:
  • Manage our chemical and other HMDG inventory in real time with the aid of barcode scanners in each lab.
  • Allow us to simutainously search across all UNSW labs, our internal stores and the catalogues of our key external vendors of HMDG's.
  • Manage our external orderin gof HMDG's, including safety warnings and approvals.
  • Manage purchasing from our internal store.

To learn more about Sciquest-ERM visit the relevant sub-sections below (or use the navigation menu on the right) which also provide "cheatsheets", unoffical and offical manuals and how-to-video's:

1. Getting login, access/browser issues, key definitions

2. Creating new containers and materials

3. Ordering / Purchasing Chemicals and Consumables

4. Working with barcodes and barcode scanners

 

The HS unit also has a website dedicated to the Sciquest-ERM.

This includes the generic official "Researcher Manual" (download here) from Sciquest on how to use the Sciquest-ERM software.

You can also go directly to these handy cheatsheets here:

1. Creating a container in Sciquest-ERM

2. Creating a new material in Sciquest-ERM

3. How to do a chemical audit (inventory check) in Sciquest-ERM

4. Tips about transferring chemicals and the "in-transit" function in Sciquest-ERM

5. Purchasing from Hosted Catalogue
