A pharmaceutical manufacturer uses reciprocating internal combustion engines for emergency backup power. Since the U.S. EPA air regulations related to these engines are complex, Barr was tasked with improving the company’s engine compliance tool. Our improvements were designed to promote a better understanding of the complex environmental regulations through user-friendly summaries and to assist environmental health and safety (EHS) staff with internal compliance reviews by highlighting key compliance requirements within the rules. Our updates included additional organizational and informational features, clarification regarding applicability dates, an expanded set of definitions, and reorganized bookmarks for easy navigation.
Barr also developed a webinar highlighting key aspects of the air regulations and providing an overview of the engine compliance tool. Corporate environmental staff used the webinar materials for training site EHS personnel; the engine compliance tool and webinar materials were beneficial in enhancing site their understanding of regulations and minimizing compliance risks. The materials also leveraged corporate EHS staff time by providing easy-to-use tools for site EHS staff, thereby reducing time spent answering similar questions from multiple sites.
