VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environmental, health, safety (EHS) and environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) software, announced it has acquired two software solutions from MyAbilities, a global innovator in smart health technology and workplace safety. The purchase includes the intellectual properties of JobX, an ActiveEHS physical demands analysis (PDA) application that helps employers match people to tasks, and ClaimX, a return-to-work solution that smooths the critical transition of employees back to their jobs.
