Outlook 2020: What EHS Managers in Manufacturing Need to Know

LLumin's Insight
Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) managers can expect an increased emphasis by regulators on the manufacturing, handling and disposal of hazardous materials this year. The fast-rising awareness of Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) will drive the overall expansion of compliance efforts for these so-called forever chemicals. Keeping pace with expanded compliance requirements expected to emerge requires a comprehensive, digital system that can produce relevant data and digital documents in a timely manner. LLumin’s READYTrack operations software suite covers all aspects of hazardous material handling tracking, from their arrival to their location and disposal using automated workflows.

Top Safety Concerns in the Manufacturing Industry

LLumin's Insight

With high-speed industrial equipment running all the time and with materials that can be flammable, irritating to the skin, or toxic, manufacturing plants must always guard against industrial accidents. Two of the top safety concerns are poor maintenance and under-trained employees. A way to ensure safeguarding of your employees is to ensure equipment is optimally maintained and staff safely uses and manages materials.

LLumin's Insight

For years, manufacturers have submitted OSHA 300A forms covering work-related injuries and illnesses. Last year, OSHA required businesses to submit them digitally. Manufacturers that tracked such processes on paper needed to make a change. A smart way to transition is to make reporting part of a broader safety compliance effort based on a materials tracking and inventory management solution such as LLumin’s READYTrak, which can help ensure the enforcement and automatic documentation of compliance processes.
