CHICAGO, Feb. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MSDSonline, the leader in cloud-based chemical management solutions, today announced it has refreshed the design of its user interface and added new tools to provide a better online and mobile experience across various technologies for its customers. While the familiar layout of the application remains the same, users will find a cleaner design, greater functionality and a more consistent experience across PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile devices.
According to Mike Flynn, MSDSonline's VP of product development & strategy, improvements to the chemical management system grew out of ongoing conversations with customers and other safety professionals. Flynn said, "We have thousands of loyal customers, including many industry leaders, who share with us their great ideas and feedback on ways to improve our system so that it continues to evolve along with the changing role of EH&S professionals."
Flynn continued, "We're seeing safety professionals, across industries, trying to free themselves from the confines of their offices and desks and to get out on the frontlines with their employees where they can have the greatest impact on chemical safety."
MSDSonline's solution gives customers access to a full suite of critical chemical information on the devices they use every day, including on-demand access to:
- Safety data sheets
- Label information
- PPE Information
- Regulatory lists
According to Flynn, the redesign has made MSDSonline's already mobile-friendly solution more intuitive, flexible and easy to use.
Recent events, including OSHA's adoption of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) into its Hazard Communication Standard, and high profile chemical catastrophes in West Virginia and elsewhere, have spotlighted the increasing need for more thoughtful and thorough chemical management. MSDSonline remains on the frontline of that movement and in 2013 its mobile chemical inventory management solution was named a Readers Choice Award Winner by Industrial Safety & Hygiene News (ISHN Magazine).
