Starting out, every day as an EHS professional felt overwhelming. I started at this company doing one thing, but I inherited EHS duties somewhere along the way. I didn’t have any formal training and I was wearing so many hats that I didn’t have a lot of time to search out training opportunities anyway. Over the years I was able to sift through the complex language of the regs, enough to identify what we needed to do to stay compliant. However, I always wished there was a course available to help weave through the madness.
Does this sound familiar? We have worked with hundreds of EHS (environmental, health and safety) professionals over the years, and this is a story we hear all of the time. Very few people go to college to become an EHS professional, but somehow they end up being one. Safety regulations have a lot of standards to wade through and sometimes they tell you what you are required to do, or what they think you should do. Environmental regulations can be a whole other animal, with lots of arms and legs and elbows and teeth. In many cases available training is either pinpointed on a specific topic or is very generalized.
That’s why iSi has developed our EHS Bootcamp.
What’s an EHS Bootcamp?
Our bootcamps deliver overview and compliance information about specific regulatory topic areas in 45 min-1 hour increments. Within these sessions we explain what the reg is about, why it’s important, what the documentation requirements are and any other items you need to know about it.
We feel our EHS Bootcamps will be good for those who are new to the industry, those who have been in it a while and need a refresher, and those who deal with EHS regulations only on a limited basis.
September 24 EHS Bootcamp
Our first ever EHS Bootcamp will be online on September 24. We will have 2 tracks…an environmental track and a safety track with new topics every hour. You can choose the sessions you want to attend as they happen. So if you take care of both environmental and safety duties, you can choose from a mix of both sessions.
As an introduction, we’re offering this event for of only $100 per ticket! So if you have a conference that you were going to attend this fall that has been cancelled, think about attending this one!
Site-Specific EHS Bootcamps
We have many more presentations built and envision providing custom bootcamps to be held for individual companies. If this is something you’d like to see at your company, email us for more information.
We hope that our EHS Bootcamp will help you hone your professional skills and point out compliance issues you weren’t aware of.
