VelocityEHS to Address Key Areas of Hazard Communication Compliance Confusion at Annual National Safety Council Congress & Expo
Posted on September 20, 2017
Chicago (September 20, 2017) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software, will address some of the common questions and uncertainties resulting from the adoption of GHS and its changes to OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom) during a presentation at the 2017 National Safety Council (NSC) Congress & Expo. Hosted by two of the industry’s leading HazCom/GHS experts, Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS and Chuck Haling, vice president of sales at VelocityEHS, the presentation will cover some of the most challenging issues tied to SDS management and label compliance, two key areas of confusion for EHS professionals.
While the final GHS deadline has passed, lingering questions and concerns remain for the millions of employers affected by its changes which are now in full effect. During the session, “The New Face of HazCom – SDS & Label Compliance in the Post-GHS Deadline Era,” on Wednesday, September 27 from 10–11 a.m., Trout and Haling will cover some of the most challenging issues surrounding SDSs and labels two areas where employers continue to have questions and uncertainties following the GHS adoption and provide best practices for overcoming those changes to ensure compliance.
“Unfortunately, the conclusion of the GHS deadlines made it easy for some employees to lose sight of the changes that were required to be implemented as a result of the deadlines,” said Trout. “By breaking down much of the confusion surrounding two areas greatly impacted by the GHS adoption – labels and SDSs – we hope to give employers the information necessary to meet GHS-alignment challenges head-on and re-focus their attention on the state of their Hazard Communication Programs.”
