Strategic Alliance Offers Joint Customers Streamlined Access to Robust Safety Data
Carlsbad, Calif., and Sydney, NSW, Australia, April 18, 2017 — 3E Company, a leading provider of environmental health and safety (EH&S) compliance and information management services, and SAI Global, a leading risk management company, today announced a strategic alliance. Through the alliance, joint customers will have streamlined access to data needed to improve EH&S performance, reduce risk, and support regulatory compliance. 3E Company is a Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK) business.
3E’s award-winning 3E Online® – SDS Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and chemical inventory management solution will now be integrated with SAI Global’s industry-leading EH&S software, Cintellate. 3E Online combines instant online access to chemical inventories and associated SDSs with around-the-clock support to offer customers a highly efficient and comprehensive solution for complying with EH&S, hazard communication, and workplace safety regulatory requirements. SAI Global’s EH&S software helps organizations automate, identify, and manage key EH&S indicators, enabling them to streamline and automate health, safety, and environmental processes to improve their overall EH&S performance, reduce costs, and increase productivity and efficiency.
As a result of the alliance, SAI Global EH&S software customers will have direct access to 3E Online, helping to ensure the customer’s library of SDSs is accurate and up to date. Users will be able to access a central repository of SDSs in the language and jurisdiction required and generate compliant hazard communication labels, promoting compliance by facilitating the efficient exchange of safety data across an organization. Replacing a previously manual and time-consuming process, the integrated offering provides clients with a holistic solution to help reduce the risk of noncompliance with industry regulations such as the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
“Companies around the globe are struggling to comply with stringent chemical regulations,” said Edmund Webecke, president, 3E Company. “In order not only to comply but thrive in this dynamic environment, it’s important to deploy an intelligent compliance strategy that’s reflective of a business’s unique needs and meets the requirements of a continually changing regulatory environment. By collaborating with industry-leading platform providers like SAI Global our joint customers will have access to 3E’s dynamic content delivered through best-in-class technology. That powerful combination can position our customers to effectively meet their regulatory requirements and help drive accelerated growth and innovation.”
“We’re excited about the benefits our collaboration will generate for our customers,” said Jan Kurger, executive vice president, risk portfolio, SAI Global. “Providing access to 3E’s comprehensive, industry-leading database of SDSs through our flexible and innovative EH&S software will help ensure the safe storage, handling, and use of chemicals in the workplace. The alliance further solidifies our commitment to delivering solutions that help our clients proactively manage their EH&S risk and compliance while reducing costs.”
