Lean & Green Lunch & Learn

May 29 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Did You Know?
Companies with robust environmental management and risk practices are more likely to be found to be compliant with OSHA and EPA statutory requirements and provide cleaner, safer, and more efficient places to work for their organization.
In 2014, the EPA levied $163 million in combined federal administrative, civil judicial penalties and criminal fines for business noncompliance.
Lean and Green businesses report increased safety as measured by total recordable incidence rate, lost work days; employee engagement and satisfaction; and total operational productivity
Lean and Green strategies can be applied to any business to identify waste, manage and eliminate environmental risk and improve operational effectiveness.
