BNA Webinar Addresses Risk Management for Manufacturing Safety ProfessionalsWednesday, June 92:00pm to 3:30pm Eastern Time
Arlington, Va. (May 13, 2010) – The regulation of chemicals used in formulated products (household cleaners, pesticides, etc.) is old news. By contrast, the regulation and market scrutiny of chemicals used to make finished products or articles (automobiles, clothing, electronics, etc.) is relatively recent and accelerating. Many manufacturing compliance officers may not even know every single ingredient or potential contaminant in their products, nor may they have viable processes for review and evaluation of those chemicals for human and environmental effects.Yet federal and state rules and regulations, and those issued by international bodies—plus, growing pressure from consumer groups, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs)—is a trend that is ever-increasing. The general public also has access to an unprecedented amount of information, much of it from websites like healthystuff.org and goodguide.com. All this has huge implications for manufacturers of finished products.BNA is collaborating with SciVera, Inc. on a 90-minute webinar on Wednesday, June 9 to provide a critical overview of the regulatory and market trends related to product chemical evaluation and share what compliance officers and other business leaders can do, cost effectively, to help their companies manage the risks.Participants will hear from expert panelists on specific measures companies can take to offset risks—as well as turning some of these measures into business opportunities in the form of cost-savings and new innovation.The webinar features five diverse and influential panelists including Dr. Thomas G. Osimitz, Chief Scientific Officer of SciVera, Inc. and Tom Murray, Senior Biologist and Chief of the Prevention Analysis Branch at the US EPA Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. Panelists will offer information and guidance from the key perspectives of government, industry, NGO, science, and strategic business planning.What participants will learn from this Webinar:
