HQ Account Streamlines HCS Compliance for EH&S Professionals

Chicago (May 13, 2011) - MSDSonline, a leading developer of on-demand (SaaS) EH&S compliance management solutions, introduced enhancements to its popular chemical inventory management solution, the HQ Account. The improvements include robust hazardous chemical tracking and reporting and are an outgrowth of the new Web-based chemical management platform MSDSonline launched in April.

Designed for single- or multi-facility businesses, the HQ Account enables EH&S professionals to centralize compliance across entire organizations. In addition to container-level tracking of hazardous chemicals and the ability to generate and print barcodes, HQ users get unlimited access to the industry-leading database of material safety data sheets (MSDS) and the capacity to easily provide employees with Right-to-Know access to MSDSs, secondary container labels and other critical safety information.

“EH&S professionals have to juggle a lot of responsibilities,” said Glenn Trout, president of MSDSonline. “Our upgrades to the HQ Account will make their jobs easier by providing greater control over, and insight into, their company’s complete hazardous chemical footprint. It will also make compliance with various state, federal and international regulations faster and easier.”

Features and benefits of the improved HQ Account include:

  • 24/7 Access to Industry Leading Database of Safety Data Sheets
  • Multi-Level (Customizable) MSDS Location Assignment
  • Standard & Custom Container Label Printing (OSHA, WHMIS, GHS)
  • Employee Right-to-Know MSDS Search Interface (Multi-Language)

“One of the things we’re most excited about with our new chemical management platform is the quick ROI and low cost of ownership it provides our customers,” said Mike Flynn, vice president of product development. “Our HQ Account pays for itself by eliminating time-consuming, manual administrative tasks. Plus, there’s no software to install and new customers get immediate access to these features and enhancements.”
