VelocityEHS has released its new Safety Meetings product that makes it easier to schedule, record, track and report on important safety meeting information through a centralized platform. Frequent safety meetings have been shown to directly reduce the number of severe incidents and injuries in the workplace; however, co-ordinating these meetings, especially in organizations where employees are spread out across departments, work shifts, facilities, cities and continents, is challenging. With the cloud-based Safety Meetings, schedules, topics, agendas, minutes, roles and responsibilities, action item statuses and all other documentation can be quickly recorded and housed in one centralized system and then instantly distributed to meeting attendees via email. The product allows safety managers to better ensure compliance with both internal policies and regulatory laws, says VelocityEHS.
