The process of submitting and reviewing safety data sheets on a construction project is typically an ongoing process that continues for the life of the project. Jim demonstrates a procedure for adding new submittals to the Studio Session, updating the combined file and table of contents, and then replacing the shared file.
- [Voiceover] So as expected, now that…I've already completed and published my…safety data sheet book, I have another trade contractor…who has sent me an additional safety data sheet submittal.…So, I've got to have a way to add…that submittal to my safety data sheet book.…And, you can see, I've already started that process.…Here's the safety data sheet submittal that…that contractor sent to me.…And, let's go to the studio session…that we left open and we'll rejoin that.…And you can see I've already taken this submittal…and I've attached, here we'll look at…their other safety data sheet pages.…
I've attached the cover sheet.…I've already dropped it into the studio session,…like we demonstrated in the last chapter…and I've already gone through…the review and approval process.…So, we're done with this new submittal.…I just need to add it to the document…with the other safety data sheets…and I need to update that table of contents.…So, again, this is one of those things that Bluebeam…is not going to do for us automatically.…
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.
