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.


In this landscape, R&D heads must contend with product proliferation, technological developments and high volumes of research – not to mention the challenges of regulatory compliance, given increasing regulatory demands in the market.

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

Discover how early EHS integration can drive success.
