Sustainable, On-Demand EH&S Solutions Help MSDSonline Climb the Inc. 5000

CHICAGO (Sept. 14, 2010) – MSDSonline® ( announced today that it was again named to the Inc. 5000, Inc. magazine’s list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in America, marking the fourth year in a row that MSDSonline has made the list. With a focus on helping companies improve compliance and sustainability, MSDSonline is a leading provider of on-demand solutions for managing hazardous chemicals, material safety data sheets (MSDS), workplace incident reporting and other critical environmental, health and safety (EH&S) information.

“Making the Inc. 5000 is something we’re always proud of, especially this year,” said Glenn Trout, president of MSDSonline. “It’s been a year of tremendous change in the  EH&S space, with new regulations, tougher enforcement by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and a big push toward technologically integrated safety systems. Furthermore, we moved up over 450 spots over last year’s ranking, despite a tough economic environment.

“Our success in this climate stems from our ability to adapt to the evolving EH&S landscape, our great customer service, and our dedication to helping safety professionals respond effectively to change while maintaining compliance and safe workplaces.”

MSDSonline pioneered online MSDS access, management and employee Right-to-Know compliance solutions more than a decade ago. MSDSonline combines access to the industry-leading database of manufacturer-original safety data sheets with easy-to-use inventory management and MSDS deployment tools. This enables more cost-effective compliance with the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS), Canada’s Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) requirements, as well as the elements of the much publicized Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).

In early 2011, MSDSonline will debut a newly enhanced Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that features improved MSDS management functionality, robust chemical inventory management tools, as well as powerful environmental/regulatory reporting capabilities – all designed to help safety professionals better understand and manage their risks, simplify compliance, promote a safer work environment and facilitate sustainability practices throughout their organization.
