Looking Outside the Box: Outsourcing Solves Regulatory Compliance Challenges

In the late 1980's, tough environmental health and safety regulations were enacted in the U.S. in response to increased concerns about industrial safety on a national scale. Regulatory compliance became a challenge, and Menasha Corporation began placing their MSDS's online. This early system was 'small scale, modem-based, and did not offer round-the-clock support services,' according to Keith Kling, Environmental Health and Safety Manager at Menasha Packaging.

Over the next decade, pressure increased on the company's relatively small group of environmental health and safety managers and their teams to push compliance responsibility down to the operating unit level. This eventually dictated that they look for a more sophisticated and responsive MSDS management system--one offering more extensive backup services, reliability and ease of use. Their existing internal system had reached its limit, and they had to think outside the box for answers.
