(BSI: Reston, VA) -- In partnership with OH&S Online, the British Standards Institution (BSI) Group is offering a free webinar, “Going Beyond the Spreadsheet!” scheduled for May 25, 2011, at 2 p.m. EDT. It will explore the topic of automating and enhancing internal processes for certification to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards and compliance to OHSAS 18001, which is part of the international occupational health and safety management system specification OHSAS 18000.

During the webinar, Gary Robinson, commercial director for BSI Canada, a founder of Entropy International, will explore five proven ways that software is being used to reduce operational risk, enhance safety awareness measures, ensure compliance, and drive continual improvement in businesses around the world.

Focus areas include:
• Safety document management
• Incident management
• Training and needs analysis
• Risk assessment
• Safety training


Who should attend?

• Quality control managers responsible for implementing and maintaining a management system
• Site managers who manage key risks on-site
• Vice presidents responsible for managing a corporate program around a key risk area such as quality, environment, safety or the supply chain
• CEOs, presidents and directors responsible for an organization’s performance and compliance


Web-based software solutions can help to manage quality, environmental, or health-and-safety responsibilities and conformity. They offer immediate visibility of all training needs, tasks, and responsibilities; keep users up to date with news, events, alerts, and reminders; allow users to share information and best practices; and enable executives and senior managers to set, communicate, and monitor compliance with policies, procedures and guidelines.
