Major Redesign of MSDSonline.com Provides Safety Professionals One Stop for EH&S Compliance Solutions and Regulatory News

Free OSHA, WHMIS, GHS, SARA and EPA Regulatory Compliance Resources Just One Click Away

CHICAGO (September 8, 2011) —MSDSonline, the leading developer of on-demand (SaaS) EH&S compliance management solutions, recently launched a major redesign of www.MSDSonline.com aimed at providing a one-stop experience for safety professionals.

Long considered the best provider on the Internet for locating material safety data sheets (MSDS), now MSDSonline.com also features the latest EH&S news, GHS information, free regulatory compliance resources and a full suite of online safety solutions just one click away – including tools for MSDS/chemical management, OSHA recordkeeping, incident management, MSDS authoring, online safety training, and easy to understand regulatory news and information.

Using the latest Web 2.0 technology, the new look and feel of MSDSonline.com was fashioned to complement the company’s innovative chemical management and regulatory cross referencing platform that launched earlier this year in anticipation of OSHA’s adoption of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). OSHA is set to revise the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to align with GHS, which in turn will create a number of new compliance obligations for manufacturers and users of hazardous chemicals.

By Using MSDSonline.com, EH&S professionals can educate themselves on GHS via the Resources Tab and the GHS Answer Center. Additionally, MSDSonline’s HQ and HQ RegXR Accounts simplify the building and management of a GHS compliant SDS library as well as the printing of GHS compliant labels.

“The new design makes it easier for safety professionals to quickly find the relevant compliance information they need – with most information usually just one click away,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of MSDSonline. “The feedback we’ve gotten is that the design looks great, but more importantly, that it is much easier to use.”

In addition to GHS, MSDSonline.com provides resources for meeting WHMIS, SARA, Tier II, EPA, DOT, REACH, EU, NAFTA, HCS, OSHA Recordkeeping and impending I2P2 compliance obligations. The new design also seamlessly integrates MSDSonline’s social media vehicles into the mix, pulling in the latest MSDSonline’s blog and Twitter posts and linking to Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Flickr, and iTunes podcasts.

“Like all the work we do here at MSDSonline, this redesign was a collaborative effort among our customers, other safety professionals and our many departments,” said Dan Ciancio, MSDSonline’s VP of marketing. “Our common goal was to create a website that helps customers and safety professionals find what they need quickly and easily.”

Most of the compliance resources on MSDSonline.com are free to all users. However, MSDSonline customers enjoy additional benefits and resources beyond access to our leading on-demand solutions.
