Manufacturing a Future of Safety and Compliance

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.
