Chicago (September 11, 2018) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, will host a series of workshops to share the company’s wide range of EHS expertise with attendees at the Chicagoland Safety, Health & Environmental Conference. The company will also demonstrate—through its recently acquired Humantech brand ergonomics software solutions—a faster, easier, and more accurate way to complete a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) risk assessment using its new, sensorless, motion-capture technology. Demonstrations of this new technology will take place at the Humantech booth during exposition hours.

The Chicagoland conference brings together EHS professionals to provide training on improving worker safety and ensuring regulatory compliance. The VelocityEHS sessions focus on two key areas of concern for today’s EHS professionals: GHS compliance and industrial ergonomics, led by VelocityEHS experts from its MSDSonline chemical management and Humantech ergonomics solutions.

VelocityEHS’ conference workshops include:

“Sharing best practices with EHS professionals is an important mission for VelocityEHS and drives our participation at industry events like Chicagoland Safety,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “We appreciate the pressures EHS professionals face and have made it our goal to help them become more effective leaders by providing them with the resources and insight they need to manage risk and lead sustainable business processes. That’s why we’re so excited to share our new motion capture technology at this year’s conference.”
