VelocityEHS to Share Expertise on Improving Compliance and Safety with Technology at Upcoming EHS Conferences
May 14, 2018
Chicago (May 14, 2018) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, today announced its upcoming participation at two industry-leading events – the 2018 American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Exposition (AIHce EXP) and Verdantix HSE Summit North America 2018. At both events, VelocityEHS experts will share regulatory expertise, and provide insight into how businesses can improve worker safety and overcome compliance challenges through the use of EHS management technology.
AIHce EXP 2018 takes place May 21-23, 208 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Zoë Frances, Product Marketing Director at VelocityEHS, will host a session, “Keeping Up with Recent Changes to OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule” on May 21 from 3:15 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. ET, which addresses the concerns many safety professionals have about their compliance obligations, including those pertaining to the agency’s new Electronic Reporting Rule. Show attendees can also visit the VelocityEHS booth (#1913) to see first-hand how the company’s EHS software and mobile apps make electronic submission to OSHA faster and easier.
“OSHA recently reported that a number of workplaces required to electronically submit their illness and injury data missed the first reporting deadline in December 2017,” said Frances. “This suggests that employers are either confused about their requirements under OSHA’s Electronic Reporting Rule, or don’t realize they’re covered by it completely. Either way, for those covered, EHS software can significantly streamline the electronic submission process. For instance, the VelocityEHS Incident Management solution allows customers to submit their 300A data for one or all of their US establishments to OSHA’s ITA (Injury Tracking Application) in minutes.”
At the Verdantix HSE Summit North America 2018, Matt Airhart, president of VelocityEHS Canada, will join the expert panel, “Empowering Frontline Workers With Collaborative Safety Technology,” which focuses on how cloud and mobile technologies have created an opportunity for EHS leaders to empower frontline workers and keep themselves safe in real-time. The sixth annual Verdantix Summit takes place May 21-23, 2018 in Houston, Texas at the JW Marriott Houston.
“Today's workforce is increasingly spread out and diverse, so mobile solutions that improve worker safety and enable more accurate data collection and reporting are no longer just a luxury, but a growing need for employers of all sizes,” said Airhart. “While mobile use in safety circles has lagged behind the curve when compared with other industries, we’ve recently seen a more rapid growth as EHS software capabilities improve and solutions grow more affordable. The right mobile solution allows employees to record incident information on the spot — when the details are most accurate — no matter the time or location, and use their device’s native features, like voice-to-text and built-in cameras, to capture detailed information as it occurs.”
With over 13,000 active customers worldwide, more businesses trust VelocityEHS to safeguard employees, manage risk and meet their complex compliance obligations than any other industry software provider. The company’s Incident Management solution streamlines the reporting process by automatically generating properly formatted injury and illness summary reports for easier electronic submission to OSHA, while the award-winning VelocityEHS Mobile App gives EHS professionals and their frontline workers a more efficient way to more accurately report and manage incidents, near misses and job hazards, perform inspections, and capture critical incident data in real-time.
