Press release: April 1, 2024
**
We are launching a “Chemical Substance Real-time Monitor” that is useful for autonomous management of chemical substances.
*Related government and ministerial ordinances under the Industrial Safety and Health Act were revised on May 31, 2022, and will be implemented in stages from April 2023 and April 2024. In the future, more autonomous management will be required in chemical substance management. *
Shin-Cosmos Electric Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Yodogawa-ku, Osaka; President and CEO: Yoshinori Takahashi), a gas alarm and detector manufacturer with the goal of “eliminating gas accidents around the world,” aims to eliminate chemical substances in workplaces and other areas. “Chemical substance real-time monitor” that measures in real time
XP-3320II-V” will be released from Wednesday, April 10, 2024. Chemical substance real-time monitor XP-3320II-V
Regarding the revision of related government and ministerial ordinances of the Industrial Safety and Health Act
While chemicals are used in all sorts of situations, health damage due to accidents and disasters caused by chemicals still continues, and the World Health Organization (2019) estimates that approximately 2 million people die each year due to chemicals. It is announced that it is.
Due to this background, the Industrial Safety and Health Act has strengthened legal measures for the management of chemical substances for many years. In May 2022, related government and ministerial ordinances under the Industrial Safety and Health Act will be revised, and new chemical regulations will be introduced. Continuing from April 2023, it will also partially come into effect in April 2024. Quoted from the leaflet published by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare: “New regulations on chemical substances in the workplace will
be introduced (https://jsite.mhlw.go.jp/miyagi-roudoukyoku/content/contents/001277415.pdf)” * – Key points of the revision of related government and ministerial ordinances of the Industrial Safety and Health Act, to be implemented in April 2024 – *
1. Significant increase in substances subject to label/SDS communication and risk assessment requirements
2. Mandatory exposure reduction measures based on risk assessment results 3. Requiring workers who handle chemicals to use appropriate protective equipment
4. Establishment of a system for autonomous management such as appointment of chemical substance managers
What is risk assessment?
Identify the dangers and hazards of chemical substances and their preparations, estimate the degree of danger or health hazards they pose to workers, and consider measures to reduce risks.
Estimating risks with “Chemical substance real-time monitor” From April 2024, based on risk assessment results, workers will be required to minimize their exposure to substances subject to risk assessment or keep it below standard values.
To confirm whether the concentration is below the standard value, it is considered effective to use a combination of estimation tools (CREATE-SIMPLE, etc.) and actual measurement methods (personal exposure measurements, simple measurement methods, etc.).

“Chemical substance real-time monitor” developed by our company “XP-3320II-V” is a handy type that can measure chemical substances in workplaces etc. in real time, and is a simple measurement method. It can be used to estimate health damage risk and confirm effectiveness in risk assessment of chemical substances.
In addition, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare’s “Workplace Safety Site” provides the “Guidebook for Risk Assessment of Chemical Substances Using Real-time Monitoring,” and support tools and quick start manuals are also available for download.
Published on the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare’s “Workplace Safety Site” * “Chemical Substance Risk Assessment Guidebook Using Real-time Monitoring” *

Features of “Chemical substance real-time monitor”
1. Handheld gas detector that measures chemicals in real time (calibration gas: toluene)
2. Can be converted to 92 different gas concentrations based on toluene, which is the calibration gas List of gases to be converted *This is a reference value.
3. Trend graphs can be displayed on the main unit or dedicated app *Optional log data collection set (sold separately) is required to read log data on a PC.
4. High drop impact resistance, 1m drop test (JIS T 8206/IEC 60079 29-1) Cleared the 2m drop test (compliance) and 2m drop test (in-house test)
