Going beyond corporate standards to ensure EHS compliance: An Enhesa no-charge webinar May 17th & 22nd
BRUSSELS and WASHINGTON, May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 17th and 22nd, Enhesa will continue its informative webinar series exploring EHS topics of interest with Going beyond corporate standards to ensure EHS compliance – how to overcome the "one size fits all" approach to global EHS management.
In order to create a strong corporate culture of EHS compliance it is critical to have broad corporate standards combined with country specific regulations. Corporate standards serve to instill the company's philosophy regarding EHS issues throughout the world, set a minimum level of responsibility and create a socially responsible corporate citizen. Corporate standards are especially useful in situations where there might be no rules at all in a given country or jurisdiction.
However, corporate standards can be too focused on the schemes of the company's home country and in many cases such standards are inadequate from a scope, regulatory and situational perspective. Sometimes corporate standards even violate local laws or fall below the requirements of a given country; thereby putting the company and individual executives at risk. With the ongoing increase in regulatory requirements, enforcement practices and public transparency around the globe, it is essential to have a compliance system that encompasses the company's ethos as well as local regulatory requirements.
