EHS Training

Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) training serves two roles, with the first being a cost effective way to standardize operations and to provide for maximized efficiency across all functional areas, and the second to meet mandatory training requirements. Those companies that combine the two are able to leverage their resources to reduce waste, increase efficiency, and improve employee morale all while meeting their regulatory requirements.

Communicating the technical details of environmental, health, and safety requirements is a critical step in achieving employee understanding and meeting compliance requirements. It is becoming more important than ever to seek and implement cost-effective programs that clearly add value to the organization, and this is where our EHS Affairs team can help.

Printing Industries of America’s EHS Affairs staff has extensive practical experience with the applicable regulatory requirements and a strong background in the application of the requirements to the printing industry. This combination allows the tailoring of training that can meet your needs and serve as a strong foundation for other programs such as Lean and green manufacturing.

The EHS Affairs staff has developed and implemented a variety of EHS training programs to help printers meet their compliance requirements and achieve their EHS goals. Our custom EHS training programs can be structured to accommodate different types of printing operations, program formats, diverse audiences, and the varied regulatory frameworks. We can work with you by providing either direct employee training or training those who would be responsible for conducting the instruction at your facility. 

Some of the training topics our staff can cover include:

  • DOT’s Hazardous Materials Handling and Transportation
  • EPA’s Hazardous Waste Identification and Management
  • Safety and OSHA Compliance Training For Supervisors
  • Ergonomics Evaluation and Work Station Improvement
  • OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard for Chemical Safety
