Compliance Solutions for Chemicals

Chemical manufacturers are faced with many challenges, including strict safety and compliance requirements and increased regulations. Coupled with the rapid technological advances and a global market, manufacturers must find new ways to improve their processes and maintain compliance with quality and safety initiatives.

How EtQ Helps

EtQ's software dramatically expands the capture of EHS-related information for the Chemical industry. This has resulted in the increased ability to produce unified reports which join different views of the enterprise in one place, helping people working alone or in a group gather intelligence, generate alternatives, and make better decisions. This ability is directly linked to increased competitiveness, a culture of compliance, and operational excellence.

Challenges Facing the Chemicals Industry

Environmental Health and Safety standards like ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 are a very important part of the Chemical industry. Additionally, those in the Chemical industry must comply with regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). EtQ has developed an Environmental Health and Safety Software system to help maintain quality to these initiatives, while providing a flexible workflow platform to adapt to changing business processes, without programming.

Business System Integration

As more and more business systems are implemented in the organization, the ability to communicate between these systems becomes a significant challenge. As a result, crucial processes are disjointed and often rely on manual "jumping" between systems, which can lead to inefficiencies in the process. EtQ features a robust integration layer that allows for information and actions to be automatically passed to and from external systems, widening the scope of the process to include EMS (Environmental Management Systems), EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) and other business systems.

Collaborative, Enterprise Environment

Large Chemical organizations with multiple divisions typically have independent, hybrid systems in place. Bridging the gap between these systems is inefficient in the long-term, and ultimately will require expensive customizations to link the enterprise. Re-routing documents, meeting to discuss integration strategy, and IT man-hours in customizations result in lost time and money. EtQ's Environmental Health and Safety Software is designed to incorporate the whole enterprise in collaborating at the enterprise level, while maintaining each division's independent business workflow. The result is a unified Environmental Health and Safety system that allows for each division to collaborate with the enterprise.

Unified EHS Process

Too often, EHS processes are disconnected. For example, Incidents are not linked to Corrective Actions and resulting Change Management processes. EtQ's software allows the process to be linked automatically and intelligently. Incidents are assessed and investigated, resulting in the initiation of corresponding downstream processes in order to manage and measure compliance and execute organizational change. Risk Management tools assess the quantitative risk of incidents throughout the process. This unified process for managing incidents results in an efficient system for Chemical manufacturers, where high-risk incidents are prioritized, no time is lost and no incident is overlooked.
