The Best Foundation for Chemical Management

Managing chemicals and employee access to critical information like safety data sheets is a tough job in the construction business thanks to the always changing environment and the flow of workers and third party contractors to the site. In the construction industry, it’s never the same worksite twice.  Add to this evolving local, state and federal compliance requirements, along with employees and resources spread around multiple job sites, each with a unique chemical footprint, and it can feel like an impossible undertaking. MSDSonline solutions from VelocityEHS can help by simplifying the organization of, access to, and deployment of chemical information and safety materials across employees and worksites.
