Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone! Wishing you all a very safe, healthy, and happy 2018!

Consider taking time now to organize your EHS records and start the new year off headed in the right direction. Ensure your records are clearly organized, and key personnel are well aware of the organizational structure. If your files are bursting out of their storage location, take the time to neatly archive older records. Several individuals should be able to present well organized records to an inspector in the event of an unannounced regulatory inspection. This demonstrates the value that is placed on safety, which can set the stage for a much smoother inspection. Scrambling for requested records never looks good.

Even if your EHS records are already well organized, take a moment to review the records from last year and set your files up for 2018. Also consider who would walk an inspector through your records in your absence and ensure they have taken the time to review the records recently.
