White Paper Details Environmental Health & Safety Compliance Strategies for Laboratories

NEEDHAM, MASS. – February 28, 2008 – A free white paper that details three specific strategies to improve laboratory environmental health and safety (EH&S) compliance programs is now available for download at http://www.eheinc.com/labprogram.htm.

“Small and midsized companies and institutions with laboratories must manage complex environmental health and safety compliance programs, involving federal, state, and local regulations with limited resources,” said Jack McCarthy, President and co-founder of EH&E, a Needham, Mass.-based environmental services consulting firm.

In the white paper, titled “Three Proven Strategies for Upgrading Your Laboratory Environmental Health & Safety Program,” EH&E experts outline the strategies they have developed to maximize the effectiveness and the efficiency of these programs.

The white paper will demonstrate how laboratory managers, laboratory technicians, and EH&S directors can:

    • Improve EH&S program organization and accessibility

 

  • Expand the laboratory inspection program

 

 

  • Take a blended approach to laboratory safety training

New White Paper Details Strategies for Biotechnology Companies to Improve EH&S Compliance

NEWTON, MASS. – September 10, 2007 – A free white paper detailing strategies to help biotechnology companies improve compliance with federal, state, and local environmental health and safety regulations is available for download at: http://www.eheinc.com/pitfalls.htm.

The white paper, titled “Environmental Health and Safety Compliance in Biotech Companies: Common Deficiencies Encountered During Audits,” is based on an analysis of numerous program audits, and offers small and mid-size biotechnology companies an opportunity to avoid costly oversights.

“All biotechnology firms are required to meet complex regulatory compliance requirements from a variety of governing sources,” said Jack McCarthy, President and co-founder of EH&E (http://www.eheinc.com/), a Newton, Mass. based environmental engineering and consulting firm. “Larger firms employ full-time professional staff to manage their responsibilities. Small and mid-size firms often cannot afford the expense or dedicate the manpower to fully meet these requirements, and are therefore more at risk of violations and sanctions.”

Compliance areas covered by the white paper include:

  • Environmental Compliance (air emissions, wastewater, and waste management)
  • Permitting and Plans
  • Employee Training
  • Biosafety
  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • General Documentation Deficiencies

Within each compliance area, the white paper details examples of the most common violations encountered during routine audits and summarizes a list of recommendations for maintaining a continual high level of compliance using limited manpower. Download the free white paper at: http://www.eheinc.com/pitfalls.htm.
