For environment, health and safety (EHS) professionals, chemical management is of utmost importance, especially in light of the increasing global regulations emerging in the industry.
In 2008, chemicals and chemical products were the source of 15,220 non-fatal occupational injuries and illnesses in the U.S. – 34 percent of these exposures/injuries resulted in six or more days away from work for the affected employees, while 10 percent resulted in 31 or more days. The cost factor alone indicates how important a role chemical management plays when it comes to an organization’s bottom line.
Scott Williams, director of sales for Sitehawk, a leading innovator in MSDS online solutions, recently shared best practices in our educational webinar on chemical management. Scott shares how companies can leverage EHS data to manage their chemical management risks, and covers the following:
- Goals – why it’s important to have chemical management best practices
- Methodologies, factors, tool and techniques you can use
- Real world case studies where implementations have resulted in very successful ROI
- Action plans/blueprints for moving forward with your own chemical management strategies
The approach to this issue is hopefully becoming more proactive; you should really determine if you are only worried about a potential OSHA audit today, or more worried about the impact of your chemical use today, and even later down the road in 20 years.
During this webinar, you’ll gain a better understanding of what your chemical hazard footprint is while uncovering various considerations to take into account in chemical management, including those associated with safety, regulatory compliance, cost and risk reduction, and sustainability initiatives.
