Chemical safety on board

Protect your crew members and the marine environment by implementing Metizoft’s solution for chemical control. MZ Chemical System is an easy-to-use software designed for chemical handlers’ onboard vessels, administrators, and ship owners for total chemical control.
Chemicals are carried on vessels in bulk as cargo or in containers, barrels, and gas cylinders. In addition, there are a range of chemicals found in a ship’s stores and equipment, such as pesticides, acids, and cleaning agents.

All in one system

With MZ Chemical System you get exposure log, chemical safety data sheets, substance register and risk assessment all in one system. Exposure log is required by law to be available for up to 60 years, from a person is exposed to a hazardous chemical. Metizoft´s system serves as documentation for a possible occupational injury allowance, should a person become ill or injured.

– As part of Metizoft´s goal in making the maritime industry more sustainable, we have developed a user-friendly software for chemical control on board vessels. After releasing MZ Chemical System, we have received very positive feedback from our clients, says Øyvind Sundgot, CMO, Metizoft AS.
