You’re Never “Too Small” to Think Big About Managing Safety!

You don’t have to be at a big company or have a huge facility to have a very long list of safety management tasks. This is especially true for employers in the manufacturing sector and other moderate to high-risk industries. Maintaining SDSs, doing inspections, developing job safety analyses (JSAs), conducting incident investigations and managing safety meetings all take up a lot of time, even under the best of circumstances. Adding to that challenge, so many of our safety management tasks result in follow-up actions that need to be completed, and things can quickly get out of hand if you’re using multiple systems for planning, scheduling and tracking them.

All the safety data you need to record and manage adds up, too. To drive better decision making you need rapid access to your most important safety metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs). You also need simple ways to generate reports that clearly demonstrate your safety performance – reports that you can quickly and easily share with your people to promote better engagement and buy-in with your safety programs.

It’s a lot to handle, and with so much on your plate, wouldn’t it be great if you had a way to simplify your safety management tasks while empowering a greater number of people in your company to support your workplace safety programs?

No matter your company or facility size, safety management tasks are made easier with the new VelocityEHS Safety Management Solution. Here’s how:

 Data-Driven Decision Making

You’ll get quick and easy access to critical safety data to drive better decision making. Intuitive data dashboards show you the most important and actionable safety indicators at-a-glance, saving you time while providing deeper insights into workplace safety performance. You can also create custom reports and schedule them for distribution to the right people throughout your organization, meaning you spend less time responding to information requests.

Worker Engagement

Improving worker engagement starts with visibility and follow-through. With our Safety Management Solution, your employees are empowered with tools to easily report workplace incidents, near misses, and hazards, and complete inspections and observations from anywhere, using any mobile device. They can also schedule safety meetings, track action items, and conduct Job Safety Analyses (JSAs) on the fly, making it easier for workers to actively participate in workplace safety management while reducing the workload for safety managers.

Streamlined Compliance

Our solution helps you easily verify compliance with regulatory requirements like OSHA’s Hazard Communication (HazCom) and Recordkeeping Standards. For example, your workers get immediate online access to safety data sheets (SDSs) for the chemicals in your workplace, while employers get the ability to instantly generate OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301, and export injury and illness recordkeeping data for fast, direct electronic submission to OSHA’s ITA.
