Recordkeeping for EHS Managers
One of the most tedious aspects of an EHS manager’s job is to keep track of a host of records. Laws have been passed in every jurisdiction requiring facilities to produce and retain records of various kinds. Don’t get caught without the necessary records in the event of a surprise EPA or OSHA inspection! This special report shows EHS managers at a glance the records they must keep on hand and for how long.
This special report contains a recordkeeping checklist to help you keep track of your records for major environmental laws and OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard.
Also included are 3 useful tables which provide:
- A summary listing of federal environmental recordkeeping requirements
- A list of federal safety recordkeeping requirements.
- A list of federal recordkeeping requirements for DOT and the Department of Homeland Security as they apply to hazardous material transporters and chemical facilities.

Enviro Matters Before the General Assembly
MDE recently reported on a number of environmental bills currently before the General Assembly.
Key issues include:
- Senate Bill 236, the Sustainable Growth and Agricultural Preservation Act of 2012, builds on the framework set by the Task Force on Sustainable Growth and Wastewater Disposal that was created by Governor O’Malley in April 2011.
- Senate Bill 240 proposes an increase in the Bay Restoration Fund (BRF) fee. Under the proposed legislation, the BRF fee would be based on water usage for most households.
- House Bill 190 would remove MDE from enforcement of the state’s noise statute.
- Senate Bill 115 would eliminate the state requirement that a small water and wastewater facility be under the supervision of both an operator and a superintendent.
- Senate Bill 117 would waive the public notice requirements and the holding of a hearing when an application is filed for a permit for dewatering at a construction project.
- Senate Bill 114 would eliminate the statutory requirement to certify Maryland-domiciled drivers of vehicles transporting controlled hazardous substances.
- House Bill 186 would clarify that a party has the right to appeal to the Court of Special Appeals from an adverse ruling in a circuit court case involving the judicial review of permit determinations.
