Free Access to SDS Library Offered to Those Affected by Harvey

"Hazardous chemical management and release remediation is a major concern for any company but becomes exponentially more difficult during natural disasters, where the surrounding conditions are often unpredictable," said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS.

VelocityEHS announced that as of Aug. 31, disaster relief organizations, emergency responders, and local businesses affected by Hurricane Harvey can access its MSDSonline safety data sheet library at no cost. "For a limited time, all customers and non-customers in the Gulf Coast can visit www.EHS.com/Harvey to search through the millions of safety sheets in the MSDSonline database to locate critical safety information for chemicals released from area oil refineries, chemical plants, gas facilities, manufacturing facilities and other sources during the storm and its cleanup," the Chicago-based company announced.

Potential health risks from chemicals released because of flooding have been a big concern in the aftermath of the hurricane, because the Gulf Coast region has a large number of petroleum refining, ethylene production, and chemical feed stock facilities, along with multiple Superfund sites.

The company is encouraging those affected by Hurricane Harvey to access the SDS online library at no cost, saying businesses and organizations don't need to be current customers to receive access. A dedicated emergency toll-free telephone number (1-844-308-7011) has been set up to help those who need a safety data sheet but don't currently have Internet access.

"Hazardous chemical management and release remediation is a major concern for any company but becomes exponentially more difficult during natural disasters, where the surrounding conditions are often unpredictable," said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. "We hope the first responders, businesses, facilities, and organizations affected by this unprecedented disaster can make use of our resources to protect their communities from any additional hazardous health repercussions."
