EH&E Offers New, Free White Paper to Help Biotech Companies Improve Environmental Health and Safety Compliance

NEWTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 01/30/07 -- EH&E has announced the availability of a new, free white paper, "Environmental Health and Safety Compliance in Biotech Companies: Common Deficiencies Encountered During Audits," for download at:

Biotech companies must comply with complex regulatory requirements mandated by federal, state, and local agencies. Larger firms employ full-time professional staff to manage these responsibilities. Small and mid-size firms often cannot afford the expense or dedicate the manpower to fully meet these requirements, and are at an increased risk of violations and sanctions.

The white paper provides detailed examples of the most common violations encountered during routine audits of biotech companies and summarizes a list of recommendations for maintaining a continual high level of compliance using limited manpower.

Based on an analysis of numerous EH&S program audits, the white paper offers small and mid-size biotech companies an opportunity to avoid costly oversights. Compliance areas covered by the white paper include:

--  Environmental  Compliance (air emissions, wastewater,  and  waste
--  Permitting and Plans
--  Employee Training
--  Biosafety
--  Occupational Health and Safety
--  General Documentation Deficiencies

For more information, contact EH&E directly on the web at: or by phone at: 1-800-825-5343. Download the free white paper at:
