“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.” – Albert Einstein

With 30 years of EHSQ experience, Intelex knows a thing or two about how health and safety, quality, environment and sustainability, ESG and risk management can preserve lives, protect the planet and sustain your business in tough times. Our founder story starts in Bhopal in 1984, with one of the greatest industrial disasters of all time. Forty years later, in 2022, the world is recovering from what is arguably one of the greatest worldwide tragedies in modern times: the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Addressing the Top Risk of Hybrid and Remote Work: Proximity Bias

How can we create strong culture with a mix of in-person, hybrid and remote workers?

A January 2022 Slack survey of over 10,000 knowledge workers and their leaders shows that the top concern for executives about hybrid and remote work is the risk of “proximity bias.” Namely, 41 percent feel worried about the risk for work culture from the prospect of inequality between office-centric, hybrid and fully remote employees. 

The difference in time spent in the office leads to risks ranging from decreased career mobility for those who spend less facetime with their supervisor to resentment building up against the staff who have the most flexibility in where to work. Leaders who want to seize a competitive advantage in the future of work need to use research-based best practices by creating a culture of “Excellence From Anywhere” to address these risks. This cultural best practice is based on guidance for … Read more...

What You Need to Know: The Four Key Steps When Performing a Job Safety Analysis (JSA)

In a job safety analysis, each basic step of a job is determined, potential hazards are identified in each step, and recommendations are made for the safest way to perform it. 
In a job safety analysis, each basic step of a job is determined, potential hazards are identified in each step and recommendations are made for the safest way to perform it. 

A job safety analysis (JSA) or job hazard analysis (JHA) are generally interchangeable terms used to describe plans that define and outline how to control hazards associated with certain processes, jobs, or procedures.

JSAs incorporate health and safety principles and practices into a task or job. When creating a JSA, it’s important not to define a job too broadly or narrowly. In a JSA, each basic step of a job is determined, potential hazards are identified in each step, and recommendations are made for the safest way to perform it. 

Recognizing hazards is a matter of watching a worker actually do a job.  The analysis that follows should seek to identify undetected hazards and increase the … Read more...

Sustainability and Innovation: Infrastructure Improvements and Reduced Emissions in the U.S.

JA contains billions of dollars in funding to support infrastructure that is resilient in the face of global climate change, including clean energy, electric vehicles and drinking water.
IIJA contains billions of dollars in funding to support infrastructure that is resilient in the face of global climate change, including clean energy, electric vehicles and drinking water.

The narrative of the global climate emergency becomes more dramatic each year. In 2021 alone, climate-driven drought, heat waves, floods and wildfires caused more than $100 billion in damage across the United States. Much of the impact of climate events is felt most significantly by low-income communities that are already vulnerable and lack the economic resilience to withstand crises.

The Biden Administration has made significant commitments to creating a more sustainable economy, including reducing U.S. emissions by 50-52 percent from 2005 by 2030 and facilitating the shift to a net-zero economy by 2050. To meet these commitments, the U.S. needs to fortify its infrastructure, create well-paid jobs that help to lift millions of Americans out of poverty and support technologies and programs … Read more...

EHS Software Solves a Need for Speed for This Construction Company

Moss searched for a safety management system and settled on the Intelex Health and Safety Management platform to organize all the data it had been collecting.
Moss went searching for a health and safety management system and settled on the Intelex Health and Safety Management platform to bring all its data from various processes into a centralized database, including incident reporting, inspections, behavioral-based observations, recorded near misses, good catches and even safety suggestions.

Fast growing companies often find themselves needing a high-performance approach to environmental health and safety (EHS).

Take the case of Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based construction company Moss & Associates, whose vice president of environmental health and safety, Scott Gerard, recently told the story of his company’s business growth. During a presentation at the 2021 EHS Today Safety Leadership Conference, Gerard said Moss started out as a company of 300 people some 17 years ago and has today become an organization of more than 3,000 employees with expectations to reach 6,000 this year.

But high growth often moves too quickly past other corporate capabilities. In … Read more...

#IWD2022: Championing Climate Action, by Women and Girls, Is Key To Saving Our Planet

Every year, Intelex celebrates International Women’s Day. The theme for International Women’s Day 2022 (March 8, 2022) is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.” It recognizes the contribution of women and girls around the world who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation and response in an effort to build a more sustainable future for all. 

According to the organizers of IWD, advancing gender equality in the context of the climate crisis and disaster risk reduction “is one of the greatest global challenges of the 21st century.” The issues of climate change and sustainability have had and will continue to have severe and lasting impacts on our environment and on economic and social development.

Those who are among the most vulnerable and marginalized experience the deepest impacts. Women increasingly are being recognized as more vulnerable to climate change impacts than men, as they constitute the majority … Read more...

Incident Management: Is Your OSHA Recordkeeping Capturing Every Recordable Incident?

Goals and key performance indicators hinging on the number of incidents, recordables, days away and other factors are usually put in place to help drive a focus to safety, but the good intention can lead to unintended and undesired consequences, such as underreporting of injuries.

Employers in private industry reported 2.7 million non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses to the U.S. Department of Labor in 2020 as part of OSHA recordkeeping reporting. That’s a lot of paperwork.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard Part 1904, many employers with more than 10 employees are required to record and report any work-related fatalities, injuries and illnesses of their covered employees using OSHA Recordkeeping Forms 300, 300A and 301. (Certain low-risk industries are exempted, and minor injuries requiring first aid only do not need to be recorded.)

A 2018 report submitted to the United States Congress by the Office … Read more...

How AI Helps Connect ESG With Your EHS Systems

As public awareness rises around such issues as the environment, human rights and ethical corporate governance, companies are increasingly looking to communicate their progress on these fronts to investors, prospective customers, regulators and the general public.

Collectively known as Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), these non-financial factors have become a key focus of reporting for organizations, which realize that it is no longer simply about the bottom line. Investment decisions are increasingly based on how much an organization is doing to create a safe, sustainable and just world. What’s more, regulatory bodies are now requiring such reporting by law.

As such, getting their reporting right on ESG is crucial for companies that want to win new business and satisfy today’s socially conscious investors.

Enter Artificial Intelligence

A key component of a firm’s overall ESG performance is their record on Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) achievements. Are they doing enough to … Read more...
