It will come as no surprise to you that many companies manage their environmental, health and safety (EHS) risks through the application of some form of Management System. When we survey EHS professionals about the management system they have in place, all of their systems require they manage legal compliance.
Your company will need to manage how it complies with EHS laws and regulations. But are you currently doing it in the best way?
