Building an Effective Environmental Health & Safety(EH&S) Auditing Program

OnDemand Webinar (86 minutes)

Reduce your company's risk and improve your environmental health and safety auditing program.

This topic helps those interested in reducing risk and improving EH&S compliance understand the benefits of an EHS management system and a means of auditing that system to test its performance. Being proactive and developing an effective EH&S auditing program can also provide companies with prevention and preparedness tools for handling potential EH&S crises, as well as make day-to-day functions more efficient and consistent with EH&S requirements. This topic is ideal for those responsible for a company's compliance and operational risk management, especially those operations that fall under heavy regulation at the local, state and/or federal level.
