Mitigating EHS Risks: A Discussion with GE Capital & Johnson Controls

Where does your greatest EHS risk lie?

In a recent survey conducted by Enhesa, 63% of respondents noted that regulatory compliance was viewed as one of the most significant risks posing a threat to operations.

Over the past 5 years, the pace of regulatory change has increased dramatically. This year alone, over 3,253 laws came into effect worldwide. As the regulatory landscape continues to evolve rapidly, the number of potential risks grows as companies are obligated to comply with more regulations.

How can you mitigate these risks in order to assure operational excellence?

In this complimentary webinar, Enhesa will highlight areas within EHS believed to pose the greatest risks to companies in 2015. Heidi King of GE Capital and Jeramy LeMieux of Johnson Controls will offer insight into various strategies and tactics used to effectively monitor, assess, and mitigate EHS risks.
