Managing Hazard Communications

This topic focuses on the processes required for collaborating with Oracle partners to manage hazard communications.

This chapter covers the following topics:

Managing Chemical Hazard Safety Documentation

To provide full compliance with international safety standards, Oracle offers a hazard communications open interface that lets companies use their existing hazard communication solution with the Oracle E-Business Suite. Several Oracle partners specialize in safety document authoring, management, and distribution to provide the tools, configurable business rules, and expertise on the most recent hazardous materials regulations.

Oracle provides the content for items and formulas. Oracle partners re-create the formula, evaluate its contents using sophisticated rules engines, and produce the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) documentation that is:

Oracle helps companies meet safety compliance with "employee right to know" legislation about toxic chemicals in the workplace by ensuring that chemical hazards are properly evaluated, and that information concerning these hazards is transmitted to appropriate employees. Safety documents are included with production batches or any other processes where hazardous material storage and handling documentation is required. Oracle E-Records is used to upload files and send them to a set of defined approvers for an e-signature.

Oracle offers these business solutions to help manage chemical hazard safety documentation:

Understanding Chemical Hazard Regulations

Regulations governing chemical hazard communication are extensive. Hazard communication documentation is required by law in many nations. These requirements are supranational because they transcend governmental boundaries, authorities, and the interests of regulatory bodies.

Widely recognized chemical hazard regulations include:

Hazard communications are typically required by manufacturers in the chemicals, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, textile, and food and beverage industries.

Producing Compliant Hazardous Material Documentation

Software tools and hazard communication vendor services help author, manage, and distribute safety documents, labels, and other regulated documents. Many of these are required under OSHA, EU Directives, and various regulatory bodies worldwide. This includes the shipment of hazardous materials, information provided to emergency response centers in their evaluation of personal injury resulting from exposure to a hazardous material, proper handling of hazardous material in the workplace, storage and cleanup of hazardous material spills, and audits by regulatory agencies.

Safety documents provide valuable details of material dangers, as well as proper storage, use and handling of a material. The document is prepared in accordance with OSHA Hazard Communications regulations in 29 CFR Part 1910.1200, European regulations in directive 91/155/EC, or Canadian regulations such as WHMIS.

Generating Safety Labels

Another important regulation from the OSHA Hazard Communications Standards (HCS) is the requirement for Employers to ensure that containers of hazardous chemicals have an appropriate warning label.

Much of the data necessary for generating these labels are available from Oracle, such as pertinent ingredients, chemical composition, hazardous materials properties and values. If this data is stored with the regulatory item, then custom reports are written to create the necessary labels. Oracle XML Publisher is one reporting option, although any report writer that can connect to the applications database suffices.

Alternatively, label design and printing facilities are available through partner applications that specialize in hazardous materials management and communication.

Producing New Product Safety Documentation

During the design and development of a new product, several safety-related documents can be required including:

When a formula is created for a new product, essential material safety information is exported to a partner application where these safety-related documents are created and printed.

Customer requirements mandate the limits of certain substances used in the product formulation. OPM Product Development offers tools that can help chemists and formulators reduce uncertainty about the composition of a formula. The Product Development Simulator lets you see the impact of different ingredients on total product output. The full formula explosion is evaluated for contributing substance quantities. You can substitute items, and you can run laboratory batch simulations using actual lots and quality results. In addition, the Optimizer enables you to specify product targets and find the best mix of ingredients based on the formulation entered.

Item Technical Data is used to track chemical composition of items and lots used as ingredients. Item Technical Data enable the Product Development Simulator to evaluate the hazardous material content in a product. A complete formula explosion is performed to examine formula contents at each level. All chemical attributes are reported based on the formula.

Creating and Distributing the Safety Data Sheet

A new safety data sheet is required when a new product is developed that contains hazardous material. A new safety data sheet version is required when hazard information for an existing product changes significantly such as through a new or updated formulation.

When either of these business events occurs in the OPM Product Development application, a workflow triggers to inform the Regulatory Document Manager, or other appropriate individual to generate a new or revised safety data sheet. The business event also exports XML data based on an industry standard safety data sheet Document Type Definition (DTD). The item, chemical information, and formula are available to any application for use as a basis for the new or revised safety data sheet. When an current safety document is available, its distribution is managed by Oracle or one of its partner applications, depending upon the implementation. Ideally, a safety data sheet for each ingredient or product that requires one is stored in the individual application. This safety data sheet becomes available to any business event that requires this safety data information.

Managing Changes to Product Formulations

Whenever a new ingredient is added to or substituted in a formula that contains a hazardous material, the composition of the finished product changes. Perform a formula analysis to evaluate the impact of the product change in the manufacturing process and quality testing. If the product composition changes, then a new or revised safety data sheet must be generated to reflect the new material composition, hazardous material distributors must send updated safety data sheet documentation immediately to material recipients.

Shipping and Transporting Hazardous Materials

Suppliers must send a properly completed safety data sheet at the first shipment of a hazardous material, or with a shipment that follows updating of the safety data sheet with new or significant hazard information.

Safety documents that are stored in the database are attached automatically to sales orders and shipments each time an item is ordered. This is accomplished by defining document attachment rules in Oracle Order Management, or by letting the application find an appropriate safety document that are attached to the shipment document set. An outbound message is sent to the Oracle partner application to determine whether a new or existing safety document must be associated to an order line. When a shipment is created for this item, the appropriate document is attached. Adding the Regulatory Shipping report to the Ship Confirm Document Set ensures that safety data sheets associated with the shipment are printed as a standard part of the Ship Confirm process.

An optional check of the dispatch history for each customer determines whether the customer already received the most recent safety data sheet. This avoids replicate communication of the same information.

Storing, Approving, and Accessing Safety Documentation

Material Safety Data Sheets, Technical Data sheets, Hazard Labels, Internal Plant Instructions, and similar documentation are an integral part of proper material handling processes including storage, production, and shipping of these materials. Oracle uses a 21 CFR Part 11-compliant file approval process that enables the upload of any type of file to the database, and routes it for e-signature approval to a configurable list of reviewers and approvers.

The application captures electronic signatures, enforces file version control, tracks an audit trail of the version history of the file, secures the file based on its status and associates multiple attributes to the file, including associating documents throughout the Oracle E-Business Suite.

Distributing Updated Safety Documentation

Manufacturers and distributors must provide an safety data sheet any time a significant change is made. If a document already exists and an updated document is created, then document distribution must be executed and a dispatch history recorded. This process is managed by a partner application.

Storing and Accessing Current Safety Data Sheets

Requirement: 29 CFR Part 1910.1200(b)(3)(ii) states that "Employers shall maintain any material safety data sheets that are received with incoming shipments of hazardous chemicals, and ensure that they are readily accessible during each workshift to laboratory employees when they are in their work areas."

Oracle provides a document repository for the storage of and rapid access to any documents received. Documents are associated with items, formulas, recipes, and batches, or they be cataloged in the document repository that provides a simple search mechanism for rapid retrieval and inspection.

Displaying Regulatory Items and Properties

The Regulatory Item navigator displays regulatory items with a list of their properties categorized and sorted by safety data sheet section. For example, when hydrochloric acid is defined as a regulatory item, its physical properties include its physical state, color, solubility, molecular weight, and specific gravity. The navigator has categories for volatility, ecological impact factors, and transportation requirements. These properties displayed in an expandable treelike framework. One or more inventory items are associated with a regulatory item to reduce setup time. This is helpful when several products all contain the same hazardous substance.

Processing New and Updated Safety Documentation

Creation or revision of formulas or items in the E-Business Suite database triggers a series of workflow-driven events that manage changes to hazard communication documentation.

Following summarizes the steps and presents an illustration of this process:

Formulas and items reside in the Oracle database.

  1. Changes to formula details such as products, recipe validity rules, and individual ingredient quantities, or changes to regulatory item properties trigger the Document Rebuild Required workflow.

  2. The Document Rebuild Required workflow generates a Regulatory Data Changed Notification for item or formula detail changes.

  3. Acceptance of the workflow notification sends the outbound GR: Document Rebuild Request message through the XML Gateway.

  4. The Oracle partner application receives the message and evaluates whether a new document or document rebuild is required.

  5. If either a new document or a document rebuild is required, then the partner application sends the inbound GR: Regulatory Item Information Request message through the XML Gateway using the Regulatory Item Information Request workflow.

  6. The XML Gateway receives this message and sends the outbound GR: Regulatory Item Information message that includes all necessary item and formula data.

  7. The Oracle partner evaluates the changes and generates any required updates to the documentation.

  8. If document approval is required, then the File Upload API triggers an optional Document Approval workflow.

  9. New or updated documents are uploaded to the Oracle database using the File Upload API.

  10. Approved documents are output as needed from the database. Optionally, they are distributed with shipping documents as described in "Attaching and Printing Regulatory Documents with Shipments." The Dispatch History is updated for each transaction.

This graphic summarizes the previous process:

Dispatching a Safety Document From an Oracle Partner

An Oracle partner can dispatch a safety document to a customer. This event writes a record to the Dispatch History table. The history is retained as a printable document.

Following summarizes the steps and presents an illustration of this process:

The Oracle partner dispatches a safety document.

  1. The dispatch event sends the GR: Document Dispatch message using the XML Gateway.

  2. New or updated documents are uploaded to the Oracle database using the File Upload API.

  3. The dispatch event is written to the Regulatory Document Dispatch History table where the document is available for viewing on the Dispatch History window.

  4. If document approval is required, then the File Upload API triggers an optional Document Approval workflow.

  5. Approved documents are output as needed from the database. Optionally, they are distributed with shipping documents as described in "Attaching and Printing Regulatory Documents with Shipments." The Dispatch History window is updated for each transaction.

This graphic summarizes the previous process:

the picture is described in the document text

Dispatching a Safety Document Internally

You can dispatch a safety document internally and send a dispatch message using the XML Gateway.

Following summarizes the steps of this process:

A safety document is dispatched internally by Running the Print Regulatory Item concurrent request with Create Dispatch History set to Yes. Manual creation of a record on the Document Dispatch History window.

The dispatch event sends the GR: Document Dispatch History outbound message using the XML Gateway.

Attaching and Printing Safety Documents with Shipments

The request for a safety shipping document print set initiates a series of events that generate and attach appropriate safety documentation to shipments.

Following summarizes the steps of this process:

A sales order is created with a regulatory item.

  1. The sales order is pick released.

  2. Choose Print Doc Set on the Shipping Transactions window. The Regulatory Document Print API is called as part of the document print request to:

  3. View the Attachments window to display the list of all attached documents.

  4. A record is written to the Document Dispatch History window for each safety document printed.

Setting Up Transaction Types in the XML Gateway

Refer to the Oracle XML Gateway User's Guide for additional information on setting up transaction types.

  1. Define these XML Gateway-related profile options:

  2. Define the UTL_FILE_DIR Parameter in the INIT.ORA file.

  4. Set up these profile options:

Understanding OPM Hazard Communication Workflows

This topic introduces you to the concept of a workflow process and refers you to the documentation that fully explains Oracle workflows. It presents an understanding of the OPM Hazard Communication workflows, how to set them up, how to start them, and how to use their windows.

Technical Overview

OPM Hazard Communication workflows use two major components:

Oracle Workflow supports business process definitions to route hazard communications. Each workflow has a rules-based engine that resides in the database. Oracle Workflow routes summary and detail information to each decision maker in the workflow process.

The Oracle Workflow Business Event System defines key business events and associates each of these events to a subscription. The subscription initiates a designated workflow to perform the required database changes, to issue notifications, and to manage the hazard communications process. Events and subscriptions are enabled or disabled as needed using the business event system. You can add a new subscription to an event to perform customized actions.

Understanding Workflow Processes

Oracle Workflow lets you automate and continuously improve business processes by routing information according to a set of business rules. Transmit this information to individuals both inside and outside your enterprise on an individual basis.

Refer to the Oracle Workflow Guide and the Oracle E-Records Implementation Guide for additional information on:

OPM Hazard Communication Workflows

Document Rebuild Required Workflow

The Document Rebuild Required workflow generates the Regulatory Data Changed Notification. If the Notification is accepted, then the workflow generates the GR: Document Rebuild Required XML (Outbound) message.

Regulatory Item Information Request Workflow

The Regulatory Item Information Request Inbound event initiates the Regulatory Item Information Request workflow. If the notification is accepted, then the workflow generates the GR: Regulatory Item Information (Outbound) XML Message.

Partner Application Data Change Workflow

The Partner Application Data Change workflow generates the Partner Application Data Change Notification to notify the Regulatory Document Manager of a data change at the partner application.

Document Approval Workflow

Refer to the Oracle E-Records Implementation Guide for a description of the process to upload external documents using the iSignatures Files Approval.

Setting Up OPM Hazard Communication Workflows

Understanding OPM Hazard Communication XML Messages

XML messages are enabled through the XML Gateway. These messages allow for the passing of data between the application and an Oracle partner or customer.

The interface point for the partner application is the Oracle Transport Agent as it is used by the XML Gateway. The Oracle Transport Agent manages server validation, message encryption, and the delivery of both inbound and outbound messages.

A message sent from and received by the Oracle E-Business Suite is transported from or to the Oracle Transport Agent through Oracle Advanced Queuing as it is implemented by the XML Gateway. The message is placed into the appropriate queue directly, or it can be placed in a queue through the use of Oracle Workflow.

Oracle Workflow Business Event System

The Oracle XML Gateway uses the Oracle Workflow Business Event System to publish and subscribe to application business events and to trigger message creation or consumption.

Oracle Advanced Queuing Interface

The XML Gateway Execution Engine interfaces with Oracle Advanced Queuing to stage outbound XML messages or receive inbound XML messages for processing.

Oracle Workflow Interface

The XML Gateway Execution Engine interfaces actively with Oracle Workflow to notify the XML Gateway system administrator regarding system or process errors, or the partner contact for data errors.

Oracle Transport Agent Interface

The Oracle Transport Agent interfaces with Oracle Advanced Queuing to deliver outbound messages and to receive inbound messages. The Transport Agent server is a Java-based servlet that uses the Transport Agent Messaging Protocol to support:
