High Frequency Data Collection & Environmental Accounting

Wednesday July 26, 2017 2PM EDT

Environmental emission calculations and compliance with permit limits require access to many sources of data. Automating the collection of data provides a huge time savings for your environmental staff and reduces possible errors. Once data is retrieved, especially high-frequency data, it takes time to ensure it can be used effectively. In this session, you will learn why there is value in connecting to hundreds of resources like historians, laboratory information management systems and accounting systems and the data needed for compliance purposes. We'll also cover when and where you can accelerate data collection, ensure data integrity and provide a full audit trail for complex regulatory requirements.

Improving Safety Management: How to Implement and Audit OSHA and ISO Safety Programs

According to the International Labor Organization, 6,300 people die every day as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases. That is almost 2.3 million deaths per year. Many companies around the world have established their own Health & Safety management systems either based on the international management consensus standards such as ISO 14001 and/or OHSAS 18001 series, or a custom system based on their needs. Join us to hear from two accomplished safety auditors and practitioners who have been in the trenches implementing and auditing these programs at large refineries, chemical plants and industrial organizations worldwide.

Refrigerant Management is No Hot Air

Instead of putting all the focus on solar farms and wind turbines to curtail global warming, Paul Hawken argues in the New York Times bestseller “Drawdown,” that an emphasis on Refrigerant Management is the No. 1 strategy to combat climate change. More than 40 gigatons of CO2 were emitted by man-made activities and emissions in 2015, which was 36 million metric tons higher than 2014, so Refrigerant Management clearly represents the greatest potential for corrective action to reverse, or “draw down,” global warming. Be it stratospheric ozone depletion or climate change, Refrigerant Management is a challenge that Sphera’s Refrigerant Compliance Management Software and Services have tackled since 1994 to reduce emissions and the environmental effects of refrigerants. This webinar, will outline the key components that are integral to a strong and effective Refrigerant Management culture enabled by software and services solutions.

Finding the Harmonization in GHS

The GHS is not as harmonized as many of us may have hoped. With all the countries who have currently implemented GHS, along with those that are coming up, are there ways to create a ‘harmonized’ SDS or label? The world is becoming smaller and where we used to divide the planet up into regions, maybe we should look at it differently. In this webinar we will look at different ways to create harmonized SDSs across multiple countries and ask questions on where a pragmatic view to SDS/Label creation might help make processes more efficient.
