We recognized the need for a program to simplify, improve, and expedite the compliance audit process for colleges and universities.
Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
Environmental management company, WasteStrategies, announces that its newly-enhanced WS AuditPRO program has earned the endorsement of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Pennsylvania (AICUP), as approved by its Board last month. The first-ever fully automated EMS from WasteStrategies is based upon the AICUP-endorsed EPA peer audit program and offers an affordable, easy-to-use solution for EPA, OSHA, and fire safety compliance audits and corrections.
Using such advanced features as handwriting recognition, photo capturing, and intelligent logic, AuditPRO’s tablet-to-portal system provides guidance through state-specific OSHA and EPA protocols, regardless of who is executing the audit. AuditPRO’s intuitive web portal offers near real-time, visual dashboard assessments of campus compliance vulnerabilities. Plus, it tracks all findings in a patent-pending process to assign and monitor corrective actions.
After 18 months of review by AICUP staff and a select number of Association members, the WS AuditPRO was endorsed as a low-cost, low-profile extension of the Association’s environmental peer-audit program. For colleges and universities, AuditPRO provides an ideal, low-cost answer to dealing with EPA, OSHA, and fire safety standards compliance.
The WS AuditPRO system has begun deployment with a number of AICUP member colleges already and widespread adoption is expected.
“Given AICUP’s close ties to the program concept and the feedback it has given to WasteStrategies, staff fully expects a high level of interest among the many colleges who participated in AICUP’s EPA Self-Audit Program years ago,” remarked Tim Alexander, VP of Finance and Administration for the AICUP.
“We recognized the need for a program to simplify, improve, and expedite the compliance audit process for colleges and universities,” remarks John Nicklin, President of WasteStrategies. “WS AuditPRO is the answer and we’re pleased to have earned the endorsement and support of the AICUP.”
WasteStrategies provides all of the necessary hardware, software, and IT support for a fraction of the cost of a full time EH&S employee.
