NEEDHAM, MA — A free webinar offered April 9 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 workflow tools, environmental health and safety managers can automate most routine tasks related to information processing and maintaining compliance — saving time 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 may be applied to many functions, including data screening and calculations, task notifications, approvals, and corrective actions.

The free webinar is designed for EHS managers and directors, safety officers, biosafety officers, laboratory managers, administrators and IT personnel. It will be held on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, from 1-2 p.m. Eastern Time. To register, visit
