Excelsior, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2015 -- Environmental Health Safety Compliance News, sponsored by U.S. Compliance Corp, reported that Charles Driggars authored a feature article in Alabama.com regarding Avoiding Environmental Liability. Driggers noted there is virtually no business today that does not, to some degree, have the potential for liability under the myriad environmental laws; for many businesses, this potential is a daily concern. News stories concerning the indictments for environmental violations of individuals long known as respected members of the community are not uncommon and are a stark reminder of the serious, even potentially criminal, consequences that can arise from alleged noncompliance with environmental regulations. Frighteningly enough, this risk applies to responsible individuals who do their best to do their jobs; the complexity of environmental laws and the difficulty of their applicability in the "real world" make even the best-intentioned employer or employee at risk for such actions.
The engine that fuels this country's economic power (and standard of living) consists in large part of chemical plants, manufacturing operations, and agricultural businesses to whom laws protecting the environment are not an abstract "good" but are instead a regulatory minefield in which noncompliance can mean, at a minimum, lost time and money in dealing with regulatory enforcement actions.
Privately held manufacturing firms must attain and sustain environmental, health, and safety compliance. Manufacturers rely heavily on employees to make the business productive and profitable. Lost workdays due to sickness or injury quickly diminish profits; employees want to know manufacturers care about their health and safety. U.S. Compliance Corp helps manufacturers avoid non-compliance lawsuits and fines by partnering and creating a customized program, practical to implement, easy to follow, and preventing workers' comp claims or costly citations.
Manufacturers with $25M-$250M in annual revenue have the same requirements to keep up with the latest government regulations. U.S. Compliance Corp has over 25 years of experience keeping more than 1,000 customers across the U.S. and Canada compliant with OSHA and environmental laws. Manufacturers must keep innovating, making better and dynamic products, while U.S. Compliance Corp keeps track of the changing regulations. Outsourcing this vital function to experts ensures manufacturers stay on top of the requirements and provide implementation and documentation of safety and compliance programs.
