CHICAGO, Nov. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MSDSonline, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for managing safety data sheets, today announced that it has expanded its offerings to include a global fax-back service. Similar to MSDSonline's popular domestic fax-back service, the global service allows users to call a hotline from anywhere in the world, any time day or night, and have a safety data sheet faxed directly to their location.
Fax-back provides employees critical Right-To-Know access to chemical hazard information, as required by OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard and the hazard communication systems of many countries. The hotline also gives users access to a dedicated team of specialists, including translators, registered nurses, emergency medical technicians, toxicologists, paramedics and pharmacists who are on call 24/7 to provide chemical exposure support.
"Our customers have employees deployed around the world and they want those workers to have around-the-clock access to the best chemical hazard information available," said MSDSonline's VP of Product Development, Mike Flynn. "Our global safety data sheet fax-back service gives employees access to a site-specific database of safety data sheets and works seamlessly with our powerful HQ and HQ RegXR chemical management solutions."
MSDSonline's release of global fax-back coincides with increased global adoption of the United Nations Globally Harmonized System (GHS), a model hazard communication system that's focusing greater attention on the importance of harmonizing critical hazard information from chemical manufacturers around the world.
Flynn added, "We are really in the business of helping companies manage critical chemical safety information in all the ways they need it, be it paper, online, fax, or via mobile device. And safety data sheets are just the beginning; we help our customers track chemicals across facilities, print workplace container labels, cross-reference chemicals against state, federal and international regulatory lists, and help drive their push toward a more sustainable chemical footprint."
