Industrial hygiene, occupational health and safety teams work with a wide variety of equipment as part of their day to day operation. All of this equipment provides a core service to hygiene, health and safety professionals, and has changed the way that organizations can monitor and manage exposures. However, EHS equipment management and tracking is a task that many look upon as, at best, an inconvenience – busywork that distracts them from their “real” work of improving the health and safety of their employees.
This paper, by Medgate Safety expert Shannon Crinklaw, discusses how an EHS equipment management system is central to any risk management and compliance program, and defines two key best practices that will ensure the maintenance of your equipment and the accuracy of your measurements.
