After nearly 40 years of TSCA dysfunction, meaningful reform may finally be on the horizon. Both chambers of the U.S. Congress have taken up legislation, and for the first time, the House of Representatives passed a bill nearly unanimously. Between ever-growing public interest in safer chemicals and long overdue federal action, there has never been a more opportune time to talk about TSCA reform.

What You’ll Learn:

To Make the Most of an EHS & Sustainability Software Investment, Don’t Skimp on the Implementation

March 7, 2018

Software is a powerful tool for accelerating EHS & Sustainability performance, but even the best tool can fail if it’s not implemented well, according to a new NAEM report that was published today.
