McWane’s EHS Steering Committee is continuing its work to help guide the continuous improvement process for our industry leading EHS programs and systems. The group met on September 17, 2014, to continue deliberations on various initiatives and projects aimed at streamlining our programs and systems and looking for newer ways to improve our EHS performance while reducing burdens on our operating divisions.

An EHS Steering Committee consisting of leaders from operating divisions and corporate was formed in the Fall of 2012. The primary purpose was to develop a strategic plan for EHS at McWane with adequate input from all stakeholders to take EHS performance at McWane to a new high. Since then, the Steering Committee has been tirelessly working behind the scene to accomplish its mission. Some of its accomplishments include improvements to EHS training and audit processes based on input from a team members throughout the company using Integrated Project Teams.

Feel free to contact any of the EHS Steering Committee members or corporate EHS staff if you have any questions or comments.
