VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, today announced updates to its EHS management solution that further enhance its award-winning user experience. The recent updates, which center on metrics, reporting, language, OSHA Recordkeeping forms, and location tagging, deliver improved accountability, visibility and ease to the thousands of users who rely upon VelocityEHS to solve their complex business challenges in simple ways.

“Helping our customers do their jobs better and operate safer, more sustainable companies is our goal. We are constantly looking to improve our solutions in order to provide more value to our customers,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “Our EHS management platform is a true cloud-based solution, which means VelocityEHS customers automatically get the latest updates almost immediately when they’re released. So the total cost of ownership is lower for our customers than it is for customers of a typical software installation, who either have to wait for a new contract to get access to updated features and/or pay a lot of money to take advantage of new features. ”

The enhancements include updates to the Performance Metrics module that make it easier for users to define specific KPIs and combinations of metrics for executive and external reporting. Similarly, updates to report scheduling and location tagging give users greater control and visibility of operational risks and compliance requirements on a site-by-site basis. Users can also now quickly generate properly formatted injury and illness summary reports for electronic submission under OSHA’s pending electronic reporting requirement. Finally, improved language translations will help companies keep pace with the needs of an increasingly diverse workforce.

Trout concluded, “At a time when safety professionals are often overburdened with tight budgets and a complex regulatory landscape, we feel good knowing we can help our customers save time, save money, and ultimately save lives.”
