VelocityEHS, an environmental, health, safety and sustainability software provider, is adding an ergonomic solution to its comprehensive EHS platform with the acquisition of ErgoAdvocate, a Web-based system that empowers employees to prevent musculoskeletal disorders.
With musculoskeletal disorders reported as some of the most common and costly work-related injuries, nearly every employer faces risks associated with ergonomic injuries suffered by its staff. The VelocityEHS Ergonomics solution provides expert online assessment and training so businesses can reach more employees at a lower cost than traditional consulting programs, as well as decrease the expenses associated with worker injury. It helps employers of all sizes reduce work-related musculoskeletal disorders by identifying problems, providing training and assisting employees in self-correcting issues.
The VelocityEHS Ergonomics solution will further strengthen a company’s single-point EHS management platform approach to controlling risk and managing EHS compliance. Current capabilities of the VelocityEHS Platform include incident management, audits and inspections, compliance management, corrective actions, change management, chemical management, risk analysis, performance metrics and training management.
