Scott Harter at Atrion International Receives EHS Gold Award From PPG Industries
Date:5/12/2010

First External Recipient to Receive Honor

Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) May 12, 2010 -- Atrion International announced today that Scott Harter, CIH, Senior Manager of Regulatory Services has been honored by PPG Industries for his extraordinary work, dedication, persistence and attention to detail on their Global Product Stewardship Initiative. The PPG EHS Gold Award is PPG’s highest Environmental, Health, and Safety award and is presented in recognition of individuals who “go significantly above and beyond” and display outstanding achievements. Mr. Harter was the first external recipient of the award, which is typically reserved for employees of PPG.

PPG Industries Global Product Stewardship (GPS) project assures that PPG products are developed, produced, distributed, used and disposed of in a safe and environmentally sound manner and advises customers on their safe use and handling. EHS concerns are being integrated into all of PPG business activities and they train, equip and support all employees in the management of environmental, health and safety activities at all locations. Atrion’s product compliance solutions form the software and data content engine of PPG’s GPS system.

In January 2006, Scott Harter was assigned as the Atrion Project Manager to PPG for their worldwide implementation of Atrion solutions and for providing certain regulatory services. Mr. Harter has engaged and managed various Atrion resources but has also routinely contributed directly as a subject matter expert in regulatory requirements for global product stewardship and user functionality of the Atrion systems.

“Scott Harter’s contributions have been instrumental in implementing our GPS system, in Australia, Asia, North America and most recently New Zealand. Implementation services provided by Atrion were below budget for each region. The European implementation is in progress,” said Mark Howe, Director of Product Compliance & Raw Material Management at PPG. “The New Zealand implementation was of major significance as New Zealand poses some of the most complex and restrictive environmental regulations on the planet. We are well positioned to manage our risk during this period of rapidly changing regulatory landscape that includes the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) and REACH in Europe.”
