For our most recent Rockford area Waste-to-Profit meeting we combined the areas of safety and environmental compliance into one program. We presented the Chemical Safety Workshop material and added some material that focused on hazardous waste recycling and pollution prevention.
The more I worked on my material and tied it into the Chemical Safety Workshop material, the more I realized how the sustainable aspect of handling chemicals goes hand in hand with the safety aspect. If we minimize exposure to our employees, then we minimize exposure to the environment.
