CHICAGO, Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, was awarded top honors in two categories by Occupational Health & Safety professionals attending the American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) Safety 2016 conference. The VelocityEHS Platform was named best EHS Management Software Solution and the company’s MSDSonline SDS/Chemical Management software won the award for best MSDS Management solution. ASSE is the world’s oldest and largest professional safety organization. Its annual safety conference attracts more than 4,000 attendees.
“These awards are such an honor because they come directly from the industry professionals who use our products to solve the complex EHS business challenges they face every day,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “Our approach has always been centered on partnering with clients and developing long-term relationships to ensure we deliver value and empower them to be EHS leaders. It’s the reason we’ve been so successful, and why more than 12,000 safety professionals look to us to help make their workplaces safer and more sustainable.”
VelocityEHS is the largest and fastest growing EHS software provider in the industry and its award-winning cloud-based EHS Management Software Platform delivers quick to implement and easy-to-use products that enable safety professionals to get a real-time, global view of the operational risks that exist in their workplace. Its comprehensive software platform includes a wide range of products that help companies reach their EHS goals faster, including: Incident Management, Chemical Management, Audit & Inspection, Management of Change (MOC), Compliance Management, Risk Analysis, Ergonomics, On-Demand Training and Training Management.
Also cloud-based, the MSDSonline SDS/Chemical Management product streamlines the management of chemicals by delivering tools that enable more efficient chemical inventory management and that ensure every employee has access to the critical lifesaving chemical hazard information they need to work safely. In addition, the solution helps companies manage compliance with the recent changes to OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom) brought on by its adoption of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).
Trout said, “I’m especially proud of the recognition of our MSDSonline brand. We’ve been the industry leader for over fifteen years and are still innovating. We recently partnered with Brady labels to streamline chemical label creation and printing. A year ago we introduced Plan1, a feature within our product that facilitates the sharing of safety data sheets and chemical inventory storage information with first responders to help them better prepare for on-site emergencies. And we have two newly released mobile apps that provide employees in the field both on and offline chemical inventory management functionality and right-to-know access to SDSs.”
The VelocityEHS Platform and MSDSonline SDS/Chemical Management product also recently received top honors in two categories in the Industrial Safety & Hygiene News (ISHN) 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards. A full list of winners appears in the August issue of ISHN.
