Why Should You Attend:
Worldwide attention focused on global environmental issues and health and safety concerns tops the list of major risk areas that all companies must be able to manage. Environmental issues span further than hazardous waste or toxic emissions. Similarly, health and safety issues span further than a worker slip and fall or carpal tunnel syndrome. Compliance professionals must be prepared to pro-actively and effectively identify the risks incumbent in their everyday processes.
It is critical that compliance professionals be armed with the right level of knowledge to ensure they can effectively risk assess the exposure that their company may be placed in as a result of the massive environmental health and safety regulation promulgated today. In addition, professionals must ensure that their companies have adequate training and communication programs in place that address the wide variety of legislation.
This session is designed to provide compliance and audit professionals with base understanding of the most important risks associated with environmental health and safety concerns. In addition, we will uncover effective deployment strategies for assessing these very technical areas.

Compliance rules governing environmental health and safety issues are some of the most complex laws that exist today. Dependent on the industry, rules can incorporate aspects ranging from air, water, soil or waste pollution to worker safety regulations and community and employee health standards. These laws are often very technical in nature and require professionals with specific engineering, scientific or safety background to develop compliance programs. Company’s often times put significant capital into creating elaborate programs to address these various environmental and health and safety requirements. Once the programs are developed, their ongoing operation can overshadow the ongoing need of periodic operating effectiveness.
In today´s business world, with increased stakeholder interest in a company´s environmental health and safety execution plan, the scope of EHS auditing is expanding. Auditing is no longer simply completing a checklist to determine regulatory compliance. In general, the purpose of an environmental, health and safety audit is to ensure compliance with the myriad of environmental, health and safety regulations that have been promulgated by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and many other federal, state and local agencies.
Compliance professionals must understand how to risk assess exposure in these critical areas as well as effectively execute evaluations that can provide their companies with proactive compliance information. In addition, they must be aware of appropriate reporting protocols to adequately protect attorney client privilege.
