Free Webinar Explores New Concept in Environmental Health & Safety Program Support for Laboratories

April 16, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Newton, Mass. - April 16, 2007 -The details of a new concept in environmental health & safety (EH&S) program support for laboratories will be detailed in a free online webinar on April 24th from 1 to 2 p.m. ET.

EH&S compliance programs for any company or institution with laboratories are increasingly complex and challenging to maintain. Yet employee safety and avoiding substantial fines for non-compliance relies upon the completeness and effectiveness of the program.

A new web-based compliance support system, however, can help. That new solution will be detailed during the April 24th webinar by Maureen Oliver, Biosafety and Radiation Safety Officer at several large research institutions, and staff scientist at Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc. (EH&E).

Oliver will show how the new system can streamline the programs of large institutions and bring specialized knowledge and tools to smaller companies. Using practical examples from several EH&S programs, Oliver will demonstrate how usage of the system enables managers to:

Allow 24/7 single point access to the entire EH&S program (documents and data).
Gain access to customizable templates for all key program documents and databases.
Automatically assign and track compliance-required tasks (compliance calendars).
Access expert peer support across all program areas.
Allow team participation in collecting required information, keeping the program current.
Minimize program disruptions during personnel changes.
Reduce EH&S staff training time.

The free webinar, A New Concept in Environmental Health & Safety Program Support for Laboratories, will be of particular interest to EH&S managers, lab managers, chemical hygiene officers, environmental managers, or anyone responsible for maintaining EH&S compliance at their company or institution.

The webinar is sponsored by EH&E, a leading provider of biosafety, laboratory safety, and radiation safety consulting services for various clients in the biomedical research and biotechnology industry.
