VelocityEHS Takes Innovative A.I. Technology and EHS Expertise to ASSP Safety 2019

CHICAGO, June 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, will showcase its trailblazing new EHS software technology and provide insights for attendees at the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) Safety 2019 Professional Development Conference on key issues facing the industry. EHS professionals at the conference will have the opportunity to try out the latest VelocityEHS software for industrial hygiene, chemical management and ergonomics, including the new Humantech ergonomics artificial intelligence (A.I.) and sensorless motion-capture technology.

In addition to demonstrating its new and improved technologies, VelocityEHS representatives will host a series of sessions during ASSP Safety 2019 to provide additional perspective into chemical management, risk assessment, ergonomics, and safety management, including:

“Today’s EHS professionals can’t do it all by themselves. Safety and compliance have to be a shared responsibility, and EHS software must be designed in a way that makes it easy to bring everyone to the table,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “The changes we’ve made to our VelocityEHS solutions are focused on being simple enough for frontline workers to use, yet sophisticated for EHS professionals to run global, best-in-class health, safety, environment, industrial hygiene and risk management programs. By building software for real people with difficult jobs, we’re able to help anyone – no matter where they are in their EHS and sustainability journey – reach their EHS goals faster and easier than ever before.”

Conference attendees are encouraged to visit the VelocityEHS booth (1011) to learn more about the completely redesigned award-winning MSDSonline chemical management software and expanded capabilities around chemical transportation and incident mitigation compliance requirements through VelocityEHS’ recent acquisition of ChemTel. With over 350 new and improved features, the redesigned MSDSonline software helps users better understand their chemical risks, manage product inventories and meet complex regulatory reporting requirements.

Booth visitors can also get their first-look at VelocityEHS’ new Industrial Hygiene solution, and get an up-close look at how its Humantech ergonomics software harnesses artificial intelligence and machine learning to help accurately assess jobs for musculoskeletal disorder risks. The easy-to-use motion-capture technology recognizes body segments and records joint angles, frequencies, and durations of postures during movement from video captured using mobile device cameras to indicating risk levels for assessment.

The ASSP Safety 2019 Professional Development Conference & Exposition will be held at the Ernest N. Morial New Orleans Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana from June 9 – 12, 2019. For more information, visit www.safety.assp.org.
