With DataPipe environmental compliance
modules, you can customize and expand your system when
regulations mandate or budgets allow. Some modules are
specific to traditional environmental issues, while others
may be shared between several departments or disciplines.
The DataPipe module list covers an unparalleled range of
environmental topics and the environmental modules
integrate seamlessly with the available industrial
hygiene, safety and occupational health modules.
Here are some of our environment and waste management
modules and a brief description.
A "mini-MSDS" used by several other
modules. Once in a system, it is shared by all other
referencing modules; it is not licensed again for each.
Required by MSDS and several Industrial Hygiene and
Environment Modules such as MSDS, MSDS Generation,
Hazardous Chemical Inventory, Spills & Releases
Identifies location, date, time, etc. of
spill or releases plus agents, amounts and other
information. May be used with General Incidents to link
multiple sub-incidents together. Requires the General
Incidents Module and Agent Parameters Module.
Movement of agents from container to
container and movements of containers from location to
location. "Cradle-to-grave" detailed mass balance
tracking, from purchase order to shipping/disposal. Also
used for waste minimization analysis.
Details on an emergency response; teams and
members, dates and times, evacuations, injuries, spills
and releases, follow-up. Displays summary data from other
forms if available. Requires General Incidents module.
Emission limits and test results from
multiple air and water sources. May be used with Agent
Parameters (Agent Parameters is required for chemical
limits) and/or with Permit History but does not require
either of these Modules.
Record detailed information about equipment
like location, costs, related activities (inspections,
repairs, incidents, etc.) history, documents, and notes.
Equipment can be any piece of hardware such as machinery,
production lines, control devices, instruments, etc.).
The presence of this module allows referencing equipment
from other modules like Incidents, General.
Includes a comprehensive program
(programmed report) to generate the U.S. E.P.A. Form R
report (site and chemical agent use, treatment and
disposal information) and these basic record-keeping
forms: Waste Generator Facility, Hazardous Chemical
Registry, Waste/Hazardous Chemical Accumulation. Other
modules which are used by the Form R report are NPDES,
Waste Disposal, Waste Minimization, Waste Receiving, Waste
Storage, Waste Shipping, and Waste Treatment/Recovery.
Requires List of Lists and Waste Characterization modules.
Information on the location and quantity of
hazardous materials (e.g., asbestos, lead paint, etc.) and
then information (quantity, permit, personnel, manifest
no., dates, etc.) on abatement projects to remove the
materials. Replaces “Asbestos Module” by expanding to all
“hazmats” in general.
A general purpose module for logging
"events"; what, where and when, cost, employees, other
personnel, etc. Includes near misses. May also tie
together multiple "sub-incidents." Some sub-incidents
require this module; see each for details.
All 16 sections of ANSI standard MSDS,
including ingredients and IH limits. Includes fields for
storing images of mfg.'s original sheets, which may be
viewed and printed. Requires Agent Parameters, which it
Build and maintain MSDSs based on
user-defined sub-sections, phrases and text, with the text
in multiple languages. Output may be to a word processor
for final formatting or a HTML file for
Inter/Intranet-based distribution. Requires Agent
Record and/or schedule periodic events.
Prepare "to-do" lists by subject or person. Automatically
update schedule. Events are anything scheduled;
inspections, meetings, training classes, sampling, etc.
Define, for any source, the amount of
agent(s) and/or waste produced, based on operating
characteristics of the source, then calculate discharges
over time. Inc. calculations at points before and after
pollution control devices. AP-42 type calcs. Requires the
Agent Parameters Module.
Track project tasks, dates,
responsibilities, costs. Includes times for PERT/CPM
analysis and other metrics. Links to Incidents (general)
if included. Use with recommendations module, site
remediation tables and other major modules.
Build multiple surveys, audits or
questionnaires from lists of questions. Answers may be
logical, text and numeric. Build physical exam, medical
history, safety and IH survey and other questionnaires
with one module. Also maintains answers to questionnaires.
May be linked to General Incidents.
Identify weakness and address change. Often
used with Questionnaires Module to react to responses from
surveys, audits, and/or questionnaires. Tracks
description, status, costs, work order, responsible
persons, location, due dates of recommendations. May be
linked to General Incidents and/or Injury & Illness to
track a series of cause and effects under one umbrella.
Use this module to define, track and
schedule activities associated with storage tanks
including inspections, tests, events or any other type of
activity the user wishes to define. Requires Storage Tanks
Preparing of manifests and then receipt of
information back from TSDF re amounts, handling codes and
other information needed for completion of GM, IC and
other standard reports. Will use Waste Storage information
if available. Requires Waste Characterization Module.
For sites which store waste rather than
immediately disposing, treating or shipping waste off
site. Tracks container location, date, contents. Allows
for combining multiple containers into a single container.
May be used with Waste Disposal, Waste Receiving, Waste
Shipping, Waste Treatment/Recovery. Requires Waste
A more generalized module than NPDES, this
module tracks allowable concentrations of contaminants
(min., max. & avg.) as well as actual amount from analysis
of samples. Users may define "panels" of standard tests to
speed data entry.
