VelocityEHS Acquires Contractor Compliance

Chicago (January 8, 2024) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in enterprise EHS & ESG software solutions, announced today it has completed the acquisition of Contractor Compliance, a Canadian-based enterprise safety and risk management software solution provider. The deal adds innovative third-party contractor and vendor compliance capabilities to the award-winning VelocityEHS Accelerate Platform. 

Now enterprises in highly regulated industries like manufacturing, food & beverage and pharma have greater access to enterprise quality contractor management software and businesses of every size can easily reduce compliance admin up to 70% vs. traditional third-party management processes. 

“Making workplaces safer, more sustainable and resilient does not get easier than this,” said Matt Airhart, CEO of VelocityEHS. “Contractor Compliance really cracked the code on reducing risk and alleviating the administrative burdens of vendor management with no risk and at no cost to the customer. Just as important, their solution is a perfect fit for our Accelerate Platform, and their people share our passion for simplifying complex challenges through beautifully designed software.”   

Under the acquisition agreement, Contractor Compliance will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of VelocityEHS from their current office location in Toronto, Canada. 

“Joining the VelocityEHS family is an important step in extending the reach of our critical and life-saving capabilities,” said Mark Bania, CEO and co-founder of Contractor Compliance. “However, creating healthier and safer work environments is just the beginning of the benefits that come along with a contractor safety program. Like Velocity, our commitment is to helping customers improve their overall business performance. Our solutions help drive operational excellence by empowering enterprises to automate, measure, analyze and improve compliance in real time.” 

In addition to the collecting, monitoring, and managing all compliance requirements from one place with ease and efficiency, Contractor Compliance features include: 

  • Automated Workflows & Contractor Submissions Collection
  • Stakeholder Access & Management 
  • Audit Facilitation
  • Contractor Scoring & Requalification
  • Worker Management & Mobile Badging

Contractor Compliance’s capabilities and rapid deployment model — enabling roll out in 30 days or less — are a great complement and entryway to the Control of Work solution available on the Velocity Accelerate Platform. Control of Work is an all-in-one software system designed for seamless electronic permit to work, contractor management, visitor management and induction and orientation training. It is designed to help companies manage operational risk at every level of a global enterprise.
