The report recommends VelocityEHS be shortlisted by enterprise and mid-market firms. Key analysis takeaways include:

Top Ergonomics and Industrial Hygiene Scores
VelocityEHS achieved the highest scores attained in each category for ergonomics and IH management. Key differentiators for IH include its out-of-the-box IH lab integrations, and global OEL database. For ergonomics, the report spotlighted integrated sensorless motion capture technology that digitally assesses posture, force, frequency and duration.

Established Strengths in EHS Risk Management
The company’s robust Risk Management software is demonstrated by its work with Dyno Nobel, a large commercial explosives firm with 32 manufacturing facilities, who use VelocityEHS to strengthen risk controls across three continents.

Quick-To-Deploy Multi-Tenant EHS Software
The VelocityEHS software suite scored high for simple user interface and out-of-the-box industry-specific configurations. The report also recognized the availability of VelocityEHS software in 20+ languages.

Robust EHS Training Management
The VelocityEHS software solution received high scores for EHS training management, which reflects its learning management system (LMS) foundations and emphasis on four modalities of learning: macro (need-case basis), micro (on-the-job), experiential (in-person learn-by-doing), and university (certification and mentoring).

One-Stop Shop for Chemical Compliance Software and SDS Services
With the highest score in the chemical management category, the report confirmed VelocityEHS’ leadership in the category and referenced the company’s cross-referencing against over 100 regulated hazardous substances lists and mobile access to over 15 million safety data sheet documents. It also recognized VelocityEHS’ continued investment in the category with new emergency response services and 24-hour assistance for chemical spill clean-up response and reporting services.

“VelocityEHS’ leadership in the Green Quadrant flows from our deep domain expertise, relentless focus on client success, and true SaaS platform—all of which combine to set a new industry standard,” said John Damgaard, CEO of VelocityEHS. “We offer best-in-class solutions backed by a best-in-class customer success team, which is why we have more customers by far—and add more customers at a faster clip—than anyone in the industry.
