So you’ve been tapped by your boss and told that in addition to all of your other responsibilities, you’re now the company’s Safety Manager too, or if you’re really lucky, the Environmental, Health and Safety manager.
Many small companies lack the budget to hire a full time, qualified EHS manager and attempt to solve the problem by asking a staff member to manage these responsibilities, but it’s not easy. OSHA, EPA, TCEQ, DOT & Hazardous materials regulations are complex & ever changing, and can easily overwhelm someone who’s not prepared or experienced. Whether you’re the company’s HR Manager, Operations Manager, Production Manager or Maintenance Manager, or even the secretary, it doesn’t matter, you already have a full plate of responsibilities and now it just got tougher!
Don’t despair, search around this page and see all of the free resources and information we’ve provided for your benefit. We hope that you’ll find these resources helpful, and invite you to make full use of them!
