Chemical Management for the Long-Haul

When you’re moving freight between points A and B, your route is rarely a straight line. That’s why the real World Wide Web is the connection of road, rail, ship, and air lines that keep materials moving between points and drive international commerce. Often, the goods being moved are hazardous materials that require special diligence to ensure the safety of the transport employees and the many communities through which the cargo passes.

At VelocityEHS, we know that for transporters, the SDS binder in the office is often thousands of miles away, and that a bill of lading doesn’t always tell the whole story. That’s why our cloud-based solutions give you the tools you need to access and manage your chemical inventory from a mobile device or anywhere you have an internet connection. Plus, you have access to the industry-leading database with millions of safety data sheets at your fingertips, so you are prepared for the unexpected.

Chemical Landscape

In transportation, you have to be prepared for every kind of shipment. If it’s mined, manufactured, processed, assembled, packaged, wholesaled, traded, retailed, or vended — it ships. Just a few of the HazMat categories carriers contend with include:

  • Explosives
  • Gases Under Pressure
  • Flammable Liquids/Gases
  • Flammable Solids
  • Oxidizers
  • Corrosives

And for those employees who work directly with hazardous chemicals, additional hazards can include short and long-term health effects like:

  • Acute Toxicity
  • Carcinogenicity
  • Germ Cell Mutagenicity
  • Reproductive Toxicity
