Jul 31, 2018
Chicago (July 31, 2018) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, has been named a top solution by Industrial Safety & Hygiene News (ISHN) readers for its MSDSonline SDS/Chemical Management Mobile App. The annual ISHN Readers’ Choice Awards allow EHS professionals to vote on the most innovative and helpful products in the industry. This is the third straight year VelocityEHS | MSDSonline has been recognized for its suite of innovative chemical management solutions.
“This award is an honor because it speaks directly to the trust EHS professionals have in our products when it comes to making their workplaces safer and more sustainable, said Mike Flynn, vice president of product at VelocityEHS. “Today's workforce is increasingly spread out and tech savvy. Mobile EHS solutions are no longer just a luxury for the few, but a must-have for employers of every size. This award recognizes our commitment to building products around the way EHS professionals and their employees work — giving them access to their SDS inventory and safety information quickly, and from any location.”
The MSDSonline SDS/Chemical Management Mobile App allows employees and safety managers to access safety data sheets (SDSs), product details and container information online and save it to their mobile device for offline use. It eliminates the need for bulky paper SDS binders, which often include missing or outdated documents. Furthermore, the electronic management of and accessibility to SDSs, using the SDS/Chemical Management Mobile App, helps employers ensure they are in compliance with HazCom 2012 and the most recently enacted GHS changes.
Users can also manage their chemical inventory across multiple locations, and use the device camera to scan barcodes, QR codes and UPC codes, and access previous scans. The app is available at no additional cost to customers, and can be used on an array of popular devices, including iPad®, iPhone® (iOS9 and later), and tablets and smartphones for Android™ (4.4 and later).
“There is no other place where our focus on simplicity is more apparent than with our mobile products,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “All of our solutions can be accessed from any connected smart phone or tablet, and our growing family of mobile apps provide users with the flexibility to access our solutions anywhere, anytime, even when offline. Most importantly, our products and apps are easy to use, so frontline workers — those who need accessibility the most — will actually use them.”
