NEWTON, Mass., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A free white paper detailing strategies to help biotechnology companies improve compliance with federal, state, and local environmental health and safety regulations is available for download at: http://www.eheinc.com/pitfalls.htm.
The white paper, titled "Environmental Health and Safety Compliance in Biotech Companies: Common Deficiencies Encountered During Audits," is based on an analysis of numerous program audits, and offers small and mid-size biotechnology companies an opportunity to avoid costly oversights.
"All biotechnology firms are required to meet complex regulatory compliance requirements from a variety of governing sources," said Jack McCarthy, President and co-founder of EH&E (http://www.eheinc.com), a Newton, Mass. based environmental engineering and consulting firm. "Larger firms employ full-time professional staff to manage their responsibilities. Small and mid- size firms often cannot afford the expense or dedicate the manpower to fully meet these requirements, and are therefore more at risk of violations and sanctions."
Compliance areas covered by the white paper include:
- Environmental Compliance (air emissions, wastewater, and waste
- Permitting and Plans
- Employee Training
- Occupational Health and Safety
- General Documentation Deficiencies
Within each compliance area, the white paper details examples of the most common violations encountered during routine audits and summarizes a list of recommendations for maintaining a continual high level of compliance using limited manpower.
