CHICAGO, Dec. 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VelocityEHS, a leading cloud environmental, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, today announced that its chemical management solutions won in two categories for the 2015 New Product of the Year Awards from Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) magazine. The company's MSDSonline brand received top honors in the SDS Management category, while its Plan1 First Responder Share Service was recognized in the category of Emergency Response. A full list of all 2015 New Product of the Year award winners is included in the December issue of OH&S magazine.
"We share these awards with the more than 11,000 customers who use our platform to safeguard their employees. Collaboration with these EHS leaders is the driving force behind our innovative products," said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. "As more companies see the value in electronic EHS solutions, we remain committed to creating new products and improving on our existing solutions to help our customers meet their complex EHS and sustainability challenges."
Recent enhancements to the MSDSonline chemical management solution help to facilitate the global migration of employers and workers toward fully mobile workplaces. For instance, improvements to the MSDSonline Chemical Inventory Scanner application now allow customers to scan container barcode/QR code labels and provide enterprise-wide insight into critical chemical inventory information from an array of mobile devices. Additionally, the system's integration with Brady Corporation label printers streamlines the workplace labeling process by extracting chemical hazard information from data customers already have indexed and saved in their account to produce labels in the GHS format.
The other VelocityEHS winning solution was the Plan1 First Responder Share Service. Part of the MSDSonline chemical management solution, the service helps facilitate hazardous chemical communication between users and the emergency response community. Plan1 provides quick and easy access to a facility's hazardous chemical inventory and storage information. The service grew out of a series of conversations with customers and first responders, who stressed the need to close the loop on emergency response planning and preparedness through improved communication and access to critical chemical safety information. Through the cloud information sharing service, first responders can better plan, prepare and assess the risks associated with emergencies involving hazardous chemicals.
