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 property claims.

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.
