Electronic recyclers are experiencing demands that are difficult to meet in today’s ever-changing regulatory environment. The challenge is especially compounded as OEMs and other suppliers prefer to do business with only R2 or e-Stewards certified recyclers who, in addition, are required to rigorously maintain the exacting ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 or RIOS certifications. But certifications are not just costly to achieve but expensive and laborious to maintain.

To help electronic recyclers turn their costs to investments and profits, improve operational efficiency, easily achieve and maintain certifications, and comply with applicable regulatory requirements, Nimonik has invited Ronald Lepore, an expert in electronic recycling certification deployment and implementation, to discuss the industry best practices with actual case studies.

On Tuesday, February 20, 2018, Ronald will discuss the challenges in the areas written below. Make sure to make the best of the opportunity to gain hands-on knowledge in the management of a recycling operation.

  • ISO 14001 regulatory compliance and interface with Health & Safety.
  • Reuse, recover…Hierarchy of Responsible Management Strategies
  • Legal requirements: including non-OECD countries: how to maintain legal registry requirements and ongoing management challenges
  • R2 Focus Materials: Challenge for selection and Ongoing due –diligence of Downstream suppliers
  • Logistics in the testing and packaging of components and residual FM`s management by downstream suppliers
  • WHY R2 or e-Stewards a global assessment and compliance

Nimonik Auditing App Demonstration

Auditing Software

An auditor’s time is valuable. Auditing with pen & paper or Excel is laborious and leaves scope for a lot of errors. These archaic tools waste auditor’s time in unproductive tasks like report writing and hinder him/her in achieving complete compliance.

Software, the best tool for auditors to ensure accuracy, is either expensive or complicated.

Nimonik understands an auditor’s job first-hand and has designed a mobile and a web app keeping the above challenges in mind. An app that is as efficient as user-friendly.

We invite you to attend Nimonik App’s demonstration to witness the efficiency it can bring to your business. 

In just a few minutes, Luciano Ciccone, will give you a detailed, step-by-step demonstration of Nimonik Auditing App’s intelligent features (web as well as mobile).

By end of the demonstration you will realize how much easier, quicker, efficient and cost effective it is to audit with Nimonik compared to auditing with any other app or the age-old pen, paper, and Excel.

We recommend organizations to not purchase an EHS software without making the users try it first. That’s why we offer a 20-day free trial account where you can invite as many users to try our auditing app.

When:
TBD

Who should attend:
Any EHS and Quality professional who audits with pen and paper or expensive, tiresome software

CSA A344 user guide is about to be released and that is welcomed news for users of rack that want to ensure their racks are being inspected and maintained to the latest standards.  The A344 user guide was first published in 2005 more than 10 years ago, so the latest edition will be considerably revised.  The 2016 edition will have provisions that largely cover the same requirements of the previous edition, plus those in the European and American user guides (EN15635 and Considerations For Planning And Use of Industrial Steel Storage Racks).

The webinar covers subjects such as basic structural theory, safe loading practices, guarding, inspection and repair. The primary topic is the inspection of rack, and the latest practices.

ISO 14001

A great Legal Register allows you to quickly understand which laws, regulations, and standards apply to you and how. It will help you define audit scopes, conduct training and point you in the right direction when regulatory change comes your way.

This webinar walks you through the dos and don’ts of building a great register and ensuring it stays relevant for your organization over time.
