VelocityEHS, a global leader in cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, announced the launch of its newly designed MSDSonline SDS/Chemical Management software platform. Backed by more than 20 years of continuous product innovation and rebuilt from the ground up to make it even easier for safety professionals and frontline workers to use, this latest release includes over 350 new and improved features to help companies who work with hazardous chemicals simplify compliance and improve worker safety.

The new software design was driven by feedback from the MSDSonline user community — the industry’s largest community of EHS software users, which includes companies from over half of the Fortune 1000. The result is a more visually intuitive user experience, improved accessibility, and new tools so today’s increasingly diverse workforce can play a more proactive role in workplace safety.

“As workplace dynamics change, it’s critical that companies adopt more sophisticated solutions to support greater employee engagement in safety and understanding of workplace hazards,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “We’re proud to offer this latest generation of our best-in-class MSDSonline Chemical Management solutions that are easy to use and fast to implement. This new release sets a new industry standard for what safety professionals require from a chemical management product.”

It’s all a part of our ongoing commitment to provide the best EHS solutions possible, with our newly formed framework paving the way for even more chemical management and EHS enhancements to come.”
