See us in Dublin for a Seminar on European Waste Management!


Are you an EHS Manager who would like to attend? Contact us today for your invitation and attendance for FREE if registered before November 25th!

Overview of the Seminar

The Revised Waste Framework Directive has created a new regulatory matrix for waste in Europe. How waste is regulated and “de-regulated” are subject to several new provisions. The duties of a waste producer have been more specifically defined in the new provisions and related court cases as well.

This one-day seminar will provide analysis on the impact of the regulatory changes on waste producers. The program will include the latest developments by the European Commission to implement the Revised Directive. The program includes case studies and analysis, and information about how well-designed programs can help ensure proper stewardship of wastes and recyclable materials derived from manufacturers’ operations. Read More!

Global Compliance Challenges in “Low Risk” Environments – Free Webinar!



Tuesday, November 5 at 10:00 AM EST (New York Time)

Thursday, November 7 at 9:00 AM EST (New York Time)

Are you aware of the health and safety regulations impacting your offices, retail stores, warehouses, or other non-manufacturing facilities?  
Have you kept track of the recent enforcement activities associated with office compliance transgressions?  
Do you have policies and procedures in place to deal with infractions or accidents in non-manufacturing locations?

EHS Managers and Practitioners all around the world are seeing heightened activity surrounding office and retail regulation. However, due to the common understanding that offices, warehouses and retail spaces are “low risk” compared to manufacturing or production sites, many companies don’t allocate enough resources to ensure compliance with EHS law in these environments.

Health and safety incidents still occur in non-manufacturing sites and many countries are increasing their regulatory attention and enforcement practices in this area.  Best-in-class companies know it is an area that demands a compliance process, but one that is different than that used for manufacturing sites.

Drawing on Enhesa’s auditing experiences and expertise with regard to non-manufacturing compliance, this webinar, held on  5 November at 10:00 AM EST and  7 November at 9:00 AM EST, Enhesa will explore:

  • Perceptions and concerns of EHS Managers on non-manufacturing compliance
  • Key differences between auditing a non-manufacturing facility versus an industrial site
  • Identification of common high risk non-compliance issues with examples of enforcement cases
  • EHS issues, notable requirements and challenges
  • Solutions to managing EHS compliance in non-manufacturing facilities – including a presentation by guest speaker and EHS Leader for Europe, Russia and Germany, Peter Tayar-Watson, on GE Global Operations Properties’ non-manufacturing compliance

We hope you’ll join us!
