CHICAGO, July 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, today announced the release of its new Safety Meetings product to help customers keep their workplaces safer by making it easier to schedule, record, track and report on important safety meeting information across the organization through a centralized platform. The product allows EHS professionals to steal back some of the time they spend on mundane tasks related to safety meetings and focus instead on other critical EHS and sustainability initiatives.
Frequent safety meetings have been shown to directly reduce the number of severe incidents and injuries in the workplace and in many places are mandated by law. However, coordinating these meetings, especially in organizations where employees are spread out across departments, work shifts, facilities, cities, and continents, is challenging. With Safety Meetings from VelocityEHS, meeting schedules, topics, agendas, minutes, roles and responsibilities, action item statuses, and all other meeting documentation can be quickly recorded and housed in one centralized system and then instantly distributed to meeting attendees via email. It gives safety managers better visibility into meeting attendance and participation, helping to ensure compliance with both internal policies and regulatory laws.
“We designed and built Safety Meetings based on requests from customers who asked for a tool that would help eliminate the day-to-day burdens associated with scheduling, conducting and reporting workplace safety meetings,” said Andrew Holmes, product management director at VelocityEHS. “Our Safety Meetings product is easy-to-use, cloud-based and automates a number of basic or repeatable tasks that many EHS professionals today still do manually.”
The new Safety Meetings product joins the full suite of solutions that form the award-winning VelocityEHS Platform and helps users reach their EHS goals faster. The comprehensive, cloud-based EHS management software helps users gain a real-time, global view of the operational risks that exist in the workplace, offering the insight needed to improve company health, safety and environmental impacts. Designed in partnership with EHS professionals with a deep understanding of the industry’s complex challenges, the VelocityEHS software delivers the right functionality through well-designed and simple solutions that drive value.
“VelocityEHS is focused on solving complex business challenges in simple ways. Our new Safety Meetings product is a great example of how a well-designed product makes life easier for the busy EHS professional,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “Our thoughtful and simple product design is one of the top reasons why more than 12,000 companies trust us to help make their workplaces safer and their EHS programs more effective.”
