Manufacturing a Future of Safety and Compliance

"We love MSDSonline. It has really helped us organize our SDSs. It finally gave us a one stop shop at a reasonable price." 
International Chemical and Pharmaceutical Manufacturer with $40B Annual Revenue

Chemical manufacturers are charged with identifying the hazards of each product they create and communicating that information to downstream importers, distributors, and customers — in addition to their own employees. In short, everything comes back to you. Companies that manufacture chemicals in the United States, Canada and elsewhere also face changes related to adoption of GHS by agencies like OSHA and Health Canada. In the U.S., June 1, 2015 was the date OSHA required every hazardous chemical to be reclassified using new global criteria, while instituting enforcement exceptions for certain chemical blenders affected by upstream delays. That’s a lot of regulation to deal with. Let us help! 

At VelocityEHS, we specialize in the creation, organization, and deployment of solutions for chemical manufacturing organizations of all sizes. Our trained, certified authoring professionals can custom-create GHS formatted safety data sheets that chemical manufacturers need in order to meet current and forthcoming OSHA requirements.

Chemical Manufacturing Landscape

Chemical manufacturers can deal with substances at both ends of the hazard spectrum.  Their environmental and employee safety compliance efforts should be tailored accordingly.  Chemical manufacturing often involves the production of substances like:

  • Acetone
  • Ammonia
  • Arsine
  • Benzene
  • Benzaldehyde
  • Chlorine
  • Ethyl Acetate
  • Flourine
  • Formaldehyde
  • Hydrofluoric Acid
  • Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK)
  • Phosphorous Oxychloride
  • Propylene
  • Sodium Carbonate
  • Sodium Hydroxide
  • Sodium Silicate
  • Sulfur Dioxide
  • Sulfuric Acid
  • Toulene
  • Tungsten Hexaflouride
  • Vinyl Acetate
  • Vinyl Chloride

We understand that creating and deploying adequate safety data sheet documentation for manufactured chemicals can be a challenge.  MSDSonline’s cloud-based chemical management solutions and custom authoring services keep employees safe and companies compliant, no matter the chemicals being manufactured.  That’s why thousands already trust us!
