At your company, who handles your environmental, health, and safety (EHS) program? Is there a team whose job it is to ensure that your company is compliant? How do you even know if you’re up to date with the most current regulations?

Through working with clients across many different industries, professionals like those at Walden have found that the EHS process doesn’t always follow neat lines. In fact, it tends to look more like this:

With so many different people overseeing so many different parts of your program, important tasks fall through the cracks. People miss things. Regulations change, and there may not be a central person whose responsibility it is to manage that knowledge and share it. One incident and your company is on the front page of the newspaper and your clients are canceling orders – and that’s the best-case scenario.

A successful EHS program is critical to your organization. But it is more than just a regulatory requirement – it can help you achieve operational excellence, with the right program and the right partner. There are many benefits to outsourcing your EHS program to a trusted partner. Here are just a few:

  • Streamlined, strategic oversight of your environmental health and safety program
  • Access to compliance experts who understand your business and the current regulatory environment
  • Lower staffing costs; no need to hire, allocate, or train staff to become experts in this area.

At Walden, our EHS Division (formerly Turnkey Compliance Solutions), are proud of our team of solutions providers, most of whom have been with us for more than five years. Their experience and superior knowledge of the compliance environment helps them to bring a higher level of expertise to benefit your business.

If you’re not yet a client, contact us today for a no-cost evaluation of your program. Existing clients are always welcome to schedule time with their solutions provider to evaluate their existing program for potential enhancements.
