Right from the Start: Early Integration of EHS Principles in NPD
The chemicals space has become increasingly competitive, putting more pressure on new product development (NPD) as a road to profitability.

This new article, on the importance of addressing environmental health and safety (EHS) principles, asserts that:
- New and continuing changes to health and safety standards, at multiple levels of government, are being strictly enforced
- Implementing EHS risk assessments and processes into early R&D and NPD phases can mitigate problems
- Taking stock of how health and safety considerations are integrated into early stages can result in a competitive edge
