How to Prepare for Incidents with EHS Management Software

[fa icon="calendar'] Thu, Oct 19, 2017 / by Emily Ysaguirre

Earlier this week, seven people were hospitalized after an explosion at what was believed to at first have been an oil rig, later discovered as a natural gas storage platform in Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana. One remains missing.

As stated in the NBC News article, four of the seven people injured in the explosion were released from hospitals on Monday, October 16th. Rescue workers were able to make it onto the smoldering rig and shut off the main gas line.

The exact cause of the explosion is unclear, officials say. In the aftermath, they said they “suspect it was touched off after cleaning chemicals on the platform ignited during some kind of maintenance work.”

The 2017 Marcum Workplace Challenge was a huge success! The Marcum Challenge was a 3.5-mile run/walk for charity and Long Island’s largest office picnic.

This year, the event attracted more than 12,000 participants from 195 corporate teams and we are proud to have been one of them. Since the tradition began, the Marcum Challenge has raised more than $700,000 for charity beneficiaries including the Long Island Children’s Museum (LICM), Children’s Medical Fund of New York, Long Island Cares, Inc – The Harry Chapin Food Bank and the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

[fa icon="calendar'] Tue, Jun 06, 2017 / by Emily Ysaguirre

The ISO 9001:2015 standard places a great deal of emphasis on using risk to drive processes and make decisions.
