Why Audit? What Is the Difference Between Regulatory Auditing and ISO 14001 or 45001 Auditing?
Rick Foote, Regional Director of EH&S, New England, Triumvirate Environmental
10:15am - 11:00am
We hear about the importance of conducting audits of your facilities. They allow us to be prepared for when the regulators show up. However, have you ever considered obtaining an ISO certification? The two standards that focus solely on EH&S are the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard or the ISO 45001 Occupations Health and Safety Standard. This session will cover the importance of auditing, what the ISO standards entail, and how they may actually help you with compliance and to show your end users that you care about your employees' health and safety and the environment.

Managing Medical or Biological Waste in Massachusetts - Guidance for Generators
Doug Graham, EH&S Practice Director - Training Services, Triumvirate Environmental
11:00am - 11:45am
Medical or Biological Waste, a.k.a., Regulated Medical Waste, is regulated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. DPH has adopted management requirements codified under 105 CMR 480 that affect those who generate such wastes. Individuals impacted by these rules would be employees who are responsible for the medical/bio waste management program and those who manage the waste onsite (e.g., internal transport, storage, onsite treatment, and other handling).
