NEEDHAM, Mass., March 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A free April 9th webinar will show environmental health and safety managers how to streamline their EHS programs —saving costs and time — by automating key administrative tasks with Microsoft® SharePoint®, a software platform available within most companies and institutions.
EHS programs involve numerous repetitive administrative tasks — information transcription, information transfer to responsible personnel, and follow-up notifications. These consume a significant amount of valuable labor — and take away from time spent on important EHS initiatives.
By using SharePoint's powerful workflow tools, environmental health and safety managers can automate most routine tasks related to information processing and maintaining compliance — saving countless hours and costs while improving both program efficiency and compliance.
The webinar — "SharePoint – More than Data Storage: Workflows Automate Key EHS Administrative Tasks" — will feature real-world examples to demonstrate how SharePoint workflows can be applied to:
- Data screening and calculations — automatically flag deficiencies, calculate and compare data to pre-determined limits
- Task notifications — send automated alerts of pending deadlines or overdue tasks
- Approvals — automate the routing of forms and reports for review (incident reports, risk assessments, etc.)
- Corrective Actions — manage documentation and track completion
The webinar is designed for EHS managers and directors, safety officers, biosafety officers, laboratory managers, and administrators and IT personnel. It will be held on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern Time. To register, visit http://www.eheinc.com/news_workshops/sharept_workflows_ehs.htm.
