Companies within the Energy industry are some of the most highly regulated and face unique EHS challenges. Regulatory scrutiny comes from:
- The risk for costly environmental disasters from spills, explosions, and leaks
- Use of heavy machinery, often located in remote areas
- Hazardous working conditions that increase the risk for accidents and injuries
- The need for proper safety gear including helmets, footwear, and eye protection
Combined, these factors can increase your potential for accidents, safety incidents, fines, and penalties.
If maintaining regulatory compliance conjures up horrifying images of piles of paperwork, spreadsheets, forms, audits and endless work hours – you’re not alone.
