Making It Work: Ideas for Improving EHS Risk Mitigation in R&D Amidst Increasing Regulation
With more and more regulatory constraints challenging the chemicals industry, preparation is becoming the watchword for companies committed to maintaining compliance. Mitigating environmental health and safety (EHS) risks in the early stages of new product development can help avoid costly problems and keep the pipeline moving smoothly.
Strategies that R&D leaders should consider for reducing EHS risks include:
- Prioritizing transparency right from the start, during the early phases of NPD
- Implementing information systems that provide access to data covering everything from chemical properties to regulations
- Fostering collaboration between chemists, engineers and EHS professionals to identify risks
Discover ideas on how these strategies and others can help decrease risk in the heavily-regulated chemicals industry.
