Leadership in EHS: Intelex’s presence at the 2016 Verdantix Summit

Calendar_1

EHS software is powerless if employees don’t adapt their behavior. Facilitating this change is one of many best practices Intelex Technologies will share at the 2016 Verdantix Summit happening May 16-18 in Chicago.

As a sponsor, Intelex will be presenting a workshop on driving behavioral change by integrating EHS and operations systems. The session will be hosted by Laura Scott, Environmental Manager at NRG Energy. NRG is one of America’s largest power companies, a leader in green energy, and a valued Intelex client. Laura will be discussing how Intelex’s software allowed NRG to build a more robust system of environmental compliance, allowing NRG to track environmental key performance indicators and ultimately helping NRG to transform its level of compliance between 2011 and 2015. Having achieved these results across a company of 10,000 employees, Laura is well-qualified to speak about the difference Intelex’s software has made.

Intelex is proud to continue … Read more...

Three Takeaways from NAEM Planning for a Sustainable Future

The National Association for Environmental Management (NAEM) recently published its annual trends report – Planning for a Sustainable Future. This report documents the key issues on the minds of corporate environmental, health & safety and sustainability leaders today. These trends are a barometer for all of us in the EHS and sustainability space, both business users and vendors alike.

It should be no surprise that this year’s trends point again to rapid change in our quickly evolving market. As the industry continues to take steps beyond simple, reactive compliance with regulations, towards making sustainability and EHS issues drive core business strategy, the NAEM research found that the priorities of EHS leaders are shifting as well.

I’d like to highlight 3 major emerging trends from the report that business leaders should be aware of with regards to EHS and sustainability.

Meet an Intelex Client: Coral Barrett, Boart Longyear

Coral works in EHS Data & Support at Boart Longyear, a mineral exploration company that provides drilling services, drilling equipment and performance tooling. Based out of Salt Lake City, Utah, this year Boart Longyear celebrates its 125 anniversary as a leader in the global mining and drilling industry. In this video, Coral discusses what made Intelex stand out from the competition when her company was looking for a new EHS system.
