Newton, MA (PRWEB) March 7, 2006
A new free white paper entitled “Environmental Health and Safety Compliance in Biotech Companies: Common Deficiencies Encountered During Audits” is available to help biotech companies improve compliance with federal, state, and local environmental health and safety regulations.
Based on an analysis of numerous program audits, the paper offers small and mid-size biotech companies an opportunity to avoid costly oversights. It’s available for download at: http://www.eheinc.com/pitfalls.htm from EH&E, a leading provider of health & safety and engineering consulting services.
“All biotech firms are required to meet complex regulatory compliance requirements from a variety of governing sources. Larger firms employ full-time professional staff to manage their responsibilities. Small and mid-size firms often cannot afford the expense or dedicate the manpower to fully meet these requirements, and are therefore more at risk of violations and sanctions,” said Jack McCarthy, President and co-founder of EH&E.
Compliance areas covered by the paper include:
o Environmental Compliance (air emissions, wastewater, and waste management)
o Permitting and Plans
o Employee Training
o Occupational Health and Safety
o General Documentation Deficiencies
Within each compliance area, the paper details examples of the most common violations encountered during routine audits and summarizes a list of recommendations for maintaining a continual high level of compliance using limited manpower.
