VelocityEHS Simplifies Complex Chemical Hazard Communication Compliance with its Expanded Regulatory Consulting Services
Mar 16, 2017
Chicago (March 16, 2017) — VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, today announced it is expanding its MSDSonline Regulatory Consulting Services to help EHS professionals better understand, and more effectively meet, their global hazard communication and chemical safety regulatory requirements. Intended for businesses that lack sufficient resources or regulatory expertise, the company’s staff of highly trained regulatory analysts and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) authors are accessible to provide guidance, answer questions or assist with complex regulatory projects.
Chemical management is a critical EHS function and a core driver of workplace safety and environmental stewardship. Facilities that manufacture, import, store, and distribute hazardous chemicals are responsible for meeting a wide range of local, federal and international regulatory requirements. Navigating the complicated and ever-changing regulatory landscape for safe and proper communication and management of hazardous chemicals can be a particularly daunting task for those with compliance obligations that span agency and location-specific jurisdictions.
“While our MSDSonline chemical management software helps automate and streamline many of the hazard communication requirements, such as managing SDSs, providing employee right-to-know access to chemical information, container-level chemical inventory management, and regulatory reporting, EHS professionals often have additional needs for supporting their company-specific compliance challenges,” said Ivy Mattio, director of MSDSonline authoring services for VelocityEHS.
Mattio added, “That’s where our Regulatory Consulting Services team adds tremendous value. Our experts understand the hazard communication regulations from countries and regulatory agencies around the globe. We do the heavy lifting – answering questions, performing compliance reviews, chemical analyses and classifications and more. By removing the day-to-day burden associated with chemical safety, we make it possible for our customers to worry less about compliance and focus more on higher priority safety and sustainability initiatives.”
Service offerings under the MSDSonline Regulatory Consulting Services umbrella include:
- Regulatory consulting and compliance reviews
- Safety Data Sheet (SDS) compliance checks
- Product grouping analysis
- Transportation classification and consulting
- GHS classification and workplace labeling consulting
- Confidential Business Information (CBI) or trade secret registration

VelocityEHS, through its MSDSonline chemical management solutions, helps companies more efficiently manage their chemical inventories and better communicate the hazards associated with those chemicals to their employees to reduce potential risk and improve workplace safety. The company’s award-winning, cloud-based, chemical management software streamlines compliance reporting requirements and provides safety managers with easy-to-use online tools to access SDSs and manage their chemical inventory.
The company’s mobile apps – available for download on the App Store and Google Play™ – further empower employers to drive safety and mitigate chemical risks by providing workers with anytime, anywhere, on- and off-line access to chemical safety data sheet and inventory information from the palm of their hands.
