An EHS Compliance Program must be built upon a strong base: an EHS Management Information System (or EMIS).
Findings and Corrective Actions comprise the final pillar of the EHS Compliance Program. Having pre-populated, standardized Findings and Corrective Actions creates consistent starting points for all your sites.
The fifth pillar of an EHS Compliance Program and the first verification pillar: Audit Questions and Auditor Guidance. This is the dreaded Audit portion.
The fourth pillar of the EHS Compliance Program is inspections. Checklists are valuable tools to implement your EHS Compliance program.
Tasks are the common language ‘to-do’ items of the EHS compliance program: assigned duties or as part of a safety or environmental program.
The second pillar of the Compliance Program is requirements, sometimes referred to as obligations. Businesses, facilities, and products must comply with all applicable and relevant requirements.
The Legal Register is the starting point for any EHS compliance program. This pillar is essential as all sites are required to comply with some form of legislation.
