Chemical Management Should Never Be Lean

“Flexible, convenient, easy to use and explain to the employees. Great time saver over the old paper system that we had.”  —
Mike Ferguson,
Cope Plastics, Inc

The watchwords in manufacturing these days are lean and sustainable. From streamlining and automating processes to delivering just-in-time results, the push is on to cut fat, reduce waste, and green the supply chain. One area where the word “lean” should not apply is chemical safety; here the optimal word is comprehensive. But what if you could combine lean and sustainable with comprehensive?

With MSDSonline solutions from VelocityEHS, your chemical management and chemical safety information share a platform and run as efficiently and cost effectively as your best processes, providing everyone in your facility access to critical information. Better still, a robust solution like the MSDSonline HQ Account saves time and money, reduces risk, drives OSHA compliance, and delivers new insight into your chemical footprint so you can reduce employee and community exposure to chemical hazards, and set your organization on the path to sustainability.

MSDSonline gives everyone in your manufacturing facility easy access to safety data sheets
