As mobile access to EHS applications gains ground across industries, the call for both online and offline access to critical information — like chemical safety data sheets — is growing louder among those who work in areas that lack Internet connectivity or need faster, more direct access to their EHS tools.
Analysis by Verdantix – a leading independent research and consulting firm with expertise in EHS, energy, and sustainability markets – suggests that offline access is now a must have for today’s safety professionals, and that EHS software vendors will struggle to compete in the marketplace if they continue to only provide basic mobile apps. Safety professionals want solutions that change the game by offering a wider range of safety options for areas where traditional systems are unable to reach.
Vedantix recognizes the VelocityEHS eBinder app as one of these game changers. The firm applauded the eBinder app’s versatility in a recent blog post, titled “VelocityEHS Hits the Nail on the Head With its Mobile Solution to Improve Chemical Management with Offline SDS Access.”
The eBinder app enables users of the company’s MSDSonline brand chemical management solution to search and save safety data sheets to their mobile devices, making the information accessible both online and off. The app streamlines the ability of all employees, including those working in remote areas with limited or no Internet connectivity, to consult safe handling and storage requirements, identify necessary protective equipment, and have instant access to emergency procedures that keep them safe while on the job.
The VelocityEHS eBinder app is available for iPad and iPhone (iOS 8 and later) and Android smartphones and tablets (4.4 and later). Employees of customers with MSDSonline brand HQ or HQ RegXR Accounts can download the eBinder app from the App Store or Google Play™ for no additional cost.
