3E Company Receives Award of Excellence From Compliance Magazine

Industry Authority Grants Award to Leading Provider of Chemical, Regulatory and Compliance Information Services; Company Recognized for Best of the Web Safety Award

ANAHEIM, CA and CARLSBAD, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 25, 2005 -- 3E Company®, the leading provider of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) information and compliance management solutions, announced today that the Company has been recognized by Compliance Magazine with an Award of Excellence in its 2005 Best of the Web Safety Awards. Recognized for excellence in Internet resources for the workplace safety industry in the category of Most User-Friendly Web Site, the award recognizes 3E's proven track record in providing organizations with the best in online information services via a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) management system. 3E was the only MSDS management vendor to be recognized in any category. The award was given at the American Industrial Hygiene Association Conference & Exposition (AIHce) in Anaheim, California.

"These awards are designed to recognize outstanding Internet-based products, services and solutions that contribute to a safer workplace," said Betty Hintch, editor for Compliance Magazine. "Our panel of judges found 3E Online®-MSDS to provide a very easy, intuitive and user-friendly experience for searching and accessing MSDS inventories and other regulatory data. They were impressed by its easy-to-use, robust features, such as rapid searching as well as viewing, printing, emailing and faxing MSDSs with very few clicks."

The panel of judges included a number of Internet, technology, interactive media and Web design gurus, including Kay Daly, a writer and editor who specializes in Web writing; David Greenbaum, principal for Center Solutions; Ilona Meager, an award-winning new media project manager and Web design entrepreneur; Michael R. Mizen, an independent developer of technology-based training and interactive presentations; Jason Rothstein, an independent consultant providing clients with instructional design, interface design, content development and project management; and Dan Schramm, president of Topiary Communications Inc., a Chicago-based self-service and decision support automation software company.

"There are very few third party objective sources of validation in the EH&S industry, so of course we're thrilled to be recognized by such an industry-leading authority as Compliance Magazine," said Robert S. Christie, CEO and president of 3E Company.

This award also follows previous recognition from industry analyst firm Frost & Sullivan's market research report naming 3E Company as the undisputed market leader in EH&S compliance information services. It is also the third award of recognition received by Compliance Magazine, who awarded 3E Online-MSDS and 3E's Healthcare Industry MSDS Database with Commitment to Worker Safety Awards two consecutive years, in 2002 and 2003.
