EHS System Model


An EHS system consists a number of elements including both Program Components and Support Structures and generates numerous Results. The system may exist or perform at various levels of system maturity and effectiveness, which are in part governed by how complete the elements are. This paper provides an overview of the pieces and elements that constitute an EHS system model. Program Components, Support Structures, Results and System Maturity are all described within the document.

How Recycling Can Lead to Charges of Greenwashing



It's no longer okay to wonder where recycle material goes nor to assume it is properly handled. Companies need to begin knowing and controlling where their recyclable material goes.

This paper presents an overview of the risks associated with recyclable material after it leaves your organization's control. It focuses on environmental and human health impacts resulting from improper recycling of electronic waste (e-waste) to demonstrate how problems might arise and the nature of those problems.

Many products presented for recycling are safe until they are dismantled. When they are dismantled if workers and the environment are not protected from the hazardous material they contain they cause significant long lasting harm. Tens of thousands of tons of hazardous material have been released into the environment in Asia and Africa as a result of waste recycling. Lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are just a few of the contaminants released during improper recycling.

EMIS

Successful implementation of an EMIS requires planning, knowledge, resources and user acceptance. In 20 years of industry experience I implemented multiple EMIS components. This document is a Powerpoint presentation that covers some of the essentials related to change management, EMIS implementation and user acceptance.
