CHICAGO, Oct. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, announced today that it has enhanced its EHS mobile experience with the launch of its next generation VelocityEHS mobile app with online/offline incident reporting capabilities. By putting incident reporting directly into the hands of workers, VelocityEHS is enabling companies to make reporting on and preventing workplace incidents everyone’s responsibility.
The VelocityEHS mobile app is the solution safety professionals have been looking for to truly engage employees in the field and make them an integral part of their EHS programs. It gives every worker the ability to instantly record and report workplace incidents, near misses and hazards as they occur — when the information is most accurate — and to use the device’s camera and voice-to-text features to capture the incident details at the source.
VelocityEHS is the leader in mobile EHS solutions with more than 1,200 companies using its family of mobile apps to transform the way they safeguard frontline employees and manage risk.
“Creating mobile solutions that workers will actually use, that get employees looking out for each other’s welfare, that provide real-time actionable data back to managers, and that can drive real culture change in an organization, is at the heart of our partnership with our customers,” said Glenn Trout, president & CEO of VelocityEHS. “Our new app enables you to reach your EHS goals faster by empowering your employees to be active participants in uncovering and correcting workplace hazards.”
With the VelocityEHS mobile app, users can:
- Report incidents, near misses, hazards and other events in a few quick and easy steps
- Capture data faster and with greater detail, using their device camera and voice-to-text features
- Access and edit draft reports and view the status of submitted reports
- End the inefficiencies and burdens of paper-based systems and spreadsheets
- Create a culture of shared responsibility for EHS and sustainability excellence
“The EHS mobile revolution is here. Companies saddled by paper processes and spreadsheets — that don’t get the right EHS tools into the hands of their workers — will be at a disadvantage,” said Mike Flynn, vice president of product development at VelocityEHS. “Our customers have increasing expectations for safety and compliance in the software products they buy. We’ve already made it easy to put your safety data sheets at the fingertips of every worker, now we’re making it just as simple to have your employees report incidents. And today, that’s just the table stakes for building a sustainable business.”
The VelocityEHS mobile app works seamlessly with the company’s comprehensive, cloud-based EHS management software platform to give businesses a real-time, global view of the operational risks that exist in their workplace. It is available for iPad and iPhone (iOS 7 and later) and Android smartphones and tablets (4.4 and later). VelocityEHS customers can download the app from the App Store or Google Play™ for no additional cost.
