VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, today announced the release of its new Safety Meetings product to help customers keep their workplaces safer by making it easier to schedule, record, track and report on important safety meeting information across the organization through a centralized platform. The product allows EHS professionals to steal back some of the time they spend on mundane tasks related to safety meetings and focus instead on other critical EHS and sustainability initiatives.
Frequent safety meetings have been shown to directly reduce the number of severe incidents and injuries in the workplace and in many places are mandated by law. However, coordinating these meetings, especially in organizations where employees are spread out across departments, work shifts, facilities, cities, and continents, is challenging. With Safety Meetings from VelocityEHS, meeting schedules, topics, agendas, minutes, roles and responsibilities, action item statuses, and all other meeting documentation can be quickly recorded and housed in one centralized system and then instantly distributed to meeting attendees via email. It gives safety managers better visibility into meeting attendance and participation, helping to ensure compliance with both internal policies and regulatory laws.
