Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) laws change regularly, and it can be difficult for site personnel responsible for EHS to remain up-to-date on regulations. Site personnel may not have the time to dedicate to the often complex EHS requirements. Site EHS personnel may change and the site needs an EHS professional to fill the gap and help get the new person up to speed. All this can leave a site with risk of significant fines/penalties and serious injuries to employees.
Ask yourself the following questions:
Is Outsourcing right for you? Will Outsourcing reduce your EHS compliance risk?
How do you handle EHS programs during operations/personnel transition to avoid disruption in compliance?
How affective are your EHS programs in reducing risk? How confident are you that all you EHS liabilities are being addressed on a day to day basis?
Have all EHS compliance requirements been adequately identified for your operations?
What is EHS Outsourcing?
EHS Outsourcing is an invaluable tool for many facilities to ensure compliance. We are able to provide EHS Technical Professionals on-site, multiple days per week, to develop and support running the day-to-day EHS programs for the facility, as well as completing required regulatory submissions, permits, etc. In addition, we can serve as the bridge during transitional times of onsite EHS personnel. When our clients hire permanent EHS staff, we help get them on board in a short period of time.
Why EHS Outsourcing?
We manage EHS Outsourcing using Scrum methodology per the EHS Compliance Roadmap. We utilize Trello to track activities during each visit with full visibility to the Client. The EHS Roadmap provides regulatory requirements defined by Federal, State, and Local legislation. This Roadmap can be used to prioritize the EHS activities when facilities hire a EHS personnel. This also supports our coordinated Team approach that can comprehensively handle any subject matter related to EHS, by providing varying Technical Professionals, as needed.
Value of EHS Outsourcing
EHS Outsourcing services can produce significant savings for your organization, as a fulltime qualified EHS professional can often cost greater than $100,000 annually – not including the additional expense of benefits, taxes, workspace and training. Factor in the savings from potential penalties and the value becomes even clearer.
