The Environment & Safety Resource Center™ is a comprehensive new source for environment, health & safety (EHS) news, analysis, legal and regulatory developments, and critical case law. This dynamic web platform is an all-in-one EHS research and compliance resource, and the latest addition to Bloomberg BNA’s popular suite of Resource Centers. The Environment & Safety Resource Center combines the content of Bloomberg BNA’s popular Environment & Safety Library™ with a more intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface, and enhanced functionality and features. Searches can now be conducted across a wider array of reference and information products, and cross-product hypertext links from products to full-text references are also incorporated and fully searchable. For example, when 40 CFR 261 is mentioned in a story in one of Bloomberg BNA’s EHS reports, that citation will link to the full text of that regulation on the Environment & Safety Resource Center.Performing state-by-state comparisons has been made much more easy and immediate with the addition of a new tool: the Right-to-Know Chart Builder. Developed based on feedback from current customers, the Right-to-Know Chart Builder enables users to create custom compliance charts comparing state requirements from the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). In addition to the Chart Builder, the Environment & Safety Resource Center also includes a subscriber feedback feature allowing customers to share their opinions of the product.
