Where to Focus, Common Challenges & Consequences of Non-Compliance
In these "new normal" days, environmental, health and safety (EHS) compliance isn’t the sole concern of most businesses—it’s just one part of running a healthy and productive company. But compliance is still an absolute must in order to run a safe and effective business, and EHS managers are faced with the daunting task of managing regulatory compliance across multiple facilities and functions, often without a lot of resources and now likely virtual in some capacity.

In the first blog of the compliance assurance series, we talked about the importance of not overlooking the more routine environmental, health, and safety (EHS) compliance programs in the hectic time that we are living in.

Now we want to go over a few stressors you should be aware of that could knock you off your compliance track this year.
Do you have multiple sites – either around the world, around the country, or around the block? Do you find your EHS budgets and resources are declining but your EHS risks are the same or even increasing? Has your company made any recent acquisitions?

A recent blog post on Corporate Citizenship, Benchmakring Blunders,is a great reminder on the importance and benefits of using audited data when comparing community investment, employee giving and employee volunteering programs.
