Environmental health and safety (EHS) is a topic containing many subtopics and variables. It is typically not a one person job, however, with company staffs facing multiple demands today, all too often this seemingly impossible task is assigned to one person and in many cases this is not the one person’s main job. The obvious question is can one person do this job? The answer is yes with the proper knowledge and tools. This webinar will address the knowledge and tools needed for one person to manage a comprehensive EHS program at a facility.

The EHS function is often looked at as a necessary evil. Many companies would prefer to spend money to improve a production line rather than spend money on EHS management system. EHS is not typically a profit center. It is more cost avoidance. While many companies have begun considering comprehensive EHS program a cost saving group and some as a profit center; most still consider EHS as a cost to avoid fines, penalties, injuries, accidents, illnesses and upsets. A one person EHS function barely has time to ensure continuous manufacturing operations let alone trying to bring about cost savings. This webinar will provide best practices for EHS departments and tips and tools designed to provide guidance and support to a successful one person EHS staff.


With a one person EHS staff there is no time to waste time. You need clear direction that enables you to “get the picture” quickly and move forward. You should attend this webinar to see how it will provide you with the hands-on tools for one person to do the job of managing EHS.
