Editor's Notes

  1. People – Planet – Profits – new mantra for 21st century
  2. Begin small and develop small scale bench-top models for experimentation. Engage the commitment of the company to remain competitive even in poor economy. Empower employees at all levels to use their knowledge and talent to come up with ideas. Be resourceful. Explore research opportunities when these ideas are conceived to help improve brand name and product.
  3. Avoid clichéd catch-all phrases like “Building a Better Future” Saying sustainability is important but failing to reflect this in stated corporate values which raises doubts about the commitment.
  4. Ask all of your stakeholders about how you are doing regarding EHS sustainability, social responsibility, and collaboration with others. Evaluate the impact of your company’s past, look at the present day situation, and envision a brighter more profitable future using these tools for EHS sustainability. Partner with others companies, research organizations, and even competitors to share the financial burden.
  5. Ask yourselves how we can do better by making the necessary changes. Look at the short and long-term goals. Compare yourself with other real world cases where progress has been a financial gain. Consider in your thinking that EHS sustainability is the future and how it can be used to view the carbon gap and trade legislation issues. How does this affect your business now?
  6. Contaminated land use comes from previous building owners, industrial tenants, and downstream plumes from adjacent contaminated properties. There are a lot environmental strategies that need attention for EHS sustainability. We need to look a lot of different things and set the metrics and goals to achieve these things. Avoidance is not the answer. The competition is moving forward and so should you. It takes proper planning and financing but the ultimate gains are more impressive. Air emissions in areas of degraded air sheds or ecologically sensitive areas.
  7. Air emissions in areas of degraded air sheds or ecologically sensitive areas. We have ecological boundaries to consider based on facility location, impacts on residential areas or ecologically sensitive areas. We need to consider the impact on the environment both now and in the future.
  8. Energy conservation is everyone’s problem. EHS sustainability can help focus on the types of energy efficient products used, disposal of the old products, and the potential EHS hazards that may arise from use of energized equipment including arc flash, electrocution, and shock. We also need to consider crisis management contingencies from natural and other disasters as part of the recovery plan to get the facility online.
  9. We have to look close at the number of sampling points within a facility and cost to collect and analyze these water samples. EHS sustainability goals can reduce the amount of waste water and reduce expensive costs associated with sample collection and discharge fees to the municipalities. Their also would be less reporting and more time to attend to other projects.
  10. EHS sustainability also considers waste water a useful commodity that can be used for other purposes. Sometimes in-plant filtering or processing can reuse the same water to save cost in the manufacture or operation of the plant.
  11. Hazardous materials can be found in the raw materials or created during the manufacturing process. EHS sustainability goals should be established to look at all of the chemicals used and try replacing with more organic or naturally-occurring materials. Also, we need to look had how we handle and use hazardous materials. The transfer process may be redesigned to minimize worker or environmental exposure. Recent plant fires at oil and gas refineries, sugar refineries, etc. have resulted in catastrophic financial losses not to mention the regulator fines and media exposure.
  12. The mantra is waste minimization. How can we reduce our waste? Sometimes with a little insight, we can sell some of the non-hazardous waste to be used for other purposes. A financial gain can occur by selling the waste to a vendor who can use it in another process.- “waste not – want not”
  13. Prior to land purchases or building construction, we need to know as much as possible about the land, geology, and the building. In New Jersey, building decommissioning must follow the ISRA requirements before a property transfer can occur. If there are issues, then other regulations like CERCLA apply. Land or underground plumes can be contaminated with heavy metals, volatile organic compounds, normally occurring or technologically enhanced radiological materials.
  14. EHS sustainability has much to do with the facility design and operation. A review of the operation may lead to great suggestions that normally could have been missed by others. All aspects or retrofitting need an EHS review. Safety showers, fire and electrical issues all need to be considered.
  15. Radiological hazards can be found in general industry as well as construction. We recently investigated the cause for higher than expected alpha and beta radiation levels in the absence of normally occurring radium levels.
  16. Implementing feasible engineering and/or administrative controls is essential to reduce the cost of PPE. In some cases, there may be no need for PPE due to changes in production, process, etc. This can be a goal toward EHS sustainability.
  17. There are a variety of risk and loss control hazards that need to be considered by safety professionals. These issues focus on the short-term gain and the long-term financial consequences of inaction.
  18. In short, our output should be cleaner than our input to the process. EHS strategies need to developed and implemented to ensure the environment and workers are protected. We also have to understand our capabilities and plan for the necessary resources in the even of a disaster recovery.
  19. Contaminated land use comes from previous building owners, industrial tenants, and downstream plumes from adjacent contaminated properties.
  20. Product life cycle is important consideration. It is not what and how it is manufactured but how it will be used and where will it end up for disposal, reuse, or recycle.
  21. EHS sustainability should consider the life cycle of the product from conception to design and beyond. We need to look at the relationships within the supply chain and be concerned with our suppliers. Look at the issue of lead- and cadmium painted toys from China. What a public and economic disaster! Brand name will be lost and may never recover despite Wal-Mart name.
  22. Metrics used can vary depending on metric tons of products or by revenue of sales.
