Our monthly roundup from Editor Teresa McPherson.
We’re starting the new year
with a number of exciting new web seminars. The first, “Construction Product
Manufacturer Liability” is scheduled for 1 p.m. EST on February 20. Speaker
Thomas McMahon is a partner in Howrey LLP’s Insurance Coverage practice group.
He is known nationally for his representation of major companies in insurance
coverage disputes involving environmental product liability, employment and intellectual
Next is our series on Workplace EH&S. On March 21, Prabhu Natarajan,
director of Strategic Alliances and Product Marketing at 3E Co.,
will address “Developing a Full Lifecycle Approach to EH&S Management
Systems.” This presentation will address compliance and risk
management problems, such as exposed workers, environmental spills, bad
publicity, penalties from regulatory bodies, and lawsuits, that often appear in
specific aspects of dealing with chemicals. While such problems can be
dealt with individually, a prevention-based program often requires a full
lifecycle approach to chemical safety management.
“World-Class HazMat Compliance Doesn’t Need to Cost a Fortune” is scheduled for
May 3. Most organizations do not have a comprehensive EH&S compliance plan
in place, leaving them exposed to fines, or worse - not being prepared in the
event of a spill or an emergency. Michael K. Beckel, manager, Consulting
Services, at 3E Co., will address: a) how to
conduct an on-site assessment of HazMat compliance information; b) the direct
and indirect (often hidden) costs associated with compliance-related tasks and
omissions; and c) the marshalling of resources to meet these challenges.
On May 23, Tamie Webber, manager, 3E Product Management, will discuss “Trends
and Considerations for Multinational EH&S Compliance.” Companies who expand
their operations into foreign markets encounter myriad issues, including
EH&S and HazMat regulatory compliance requirements. There are several
complex issues that go far beyond simple language translation. This web seminar
will address the multiple issues companies face and the steps they need to
consider when addressing multilingual issues.
