There’s a great scene near the end of the original Ghostbusters movie where Ernie Hudson (as Winston Zeddemore), upon apparently vanquishing one of the evil spirits, exclaims “We have the tools! We have the talent!” EHS managers don’t get to use Proton Packs at work, but they do need good tools and real talent to not only
This past Wednesday, the US Senate passed legislation that would roll back another Obama-era worker safety regulation. The rule in question helped track workplace injuries and deaths, with the aim of increasing worker safety awareness. While the regulation may change, Findlay All Hazards (and many Findlay colleagues) believe that continuing to track workplace incidents diligently
Hazardous materials transportation is always one of the key concerns of EHS managers. Chemicals, energy substances, and other volatile products and raw materials move from point-to-point by road, rail, and waterway every day. A hazmat journey might not only encompass thousands of miles but a range of weather conditions, such as we see this time

Typical Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) training focuses on regulatory information and practical exercises. Findlay All Hazards sees that simple approach as a pitfall for organizations who are seeking not just compliance, but a safer work environment. Why just learn how to react to incidents when you can also learn how to prevent
OSHA tells us that, each year, some 2 million Americans report that they are victims of workplace violence. But many more cases go unreported, and recent stats published by the Center for Disease Control say that about 16,000 private industry workers “experienced trauma from nonfatal workplace violence (WPV) in 2014”.
