Once the initial process of collecting safety data sheets at the beginning of a construction project is completed, the next step is to combine the sheets into a single PDF file that can be shared and searched. Jim demonstrates how to automate this process for the files in the Studio Session so that the result is a single PDF file that includes a coversheet with a linked table of contents.
- [Voiceover] Okay so at this point in the course…we have learned how to set up a studio session…and bring in all of our safety data sheets…and middle documents, we've gone through,…we've reviewed each one, we've marked them…as approved and ready for release.…And again I know that this is probably going…to be an ongoing process for the life of the…project, but at some point I've got to look at this…and say okay I'm ready to mobilize on the job.…So I need to take whatever I have and get it all…combined together, generate that chemical list,…and make it available out on the job site.…
Because we're starting the project…and so I need to take what I have…and get it out there.…So we're going to say we're at that point.…We're going to go back in to our studio…sessions so make sure that you're Bluebeam…studio tab is open and make sure that you're…logged in to your studio account.…And you can click on home so it looks something…like this, depending on how many projects…and sessions you have set up.…We're going to find that SDS Submittal Session…
The end result is an easily accessible electronic package, with a hyperlinked chemical list that acts as a clickable table of contents—all with considerably less effort. Jim Rogers shows how to set up a project, start a studio session for collaboration, invite collaborators to the review process, set up an approval workflow, and combine all the submitted sheets into a single PDF file that can be searched and shared. Plus, learn how to keep a session open for additional submittals or archive it when a project is over.
