The Merichem Company has chosen the KMI EHS Suite for Incident and Corrective Action Management to address environmental, safety and physical security incident reporting and risk reduction. The Merichem system implementation will include integration with existing human resources systems for migration of employee information used in KMI automated OSHA reporting and labor hours for performance rate reporting in the KMI Reports & Dashboards module.
“Merichem has always demonstrated the highest level of commitment to the safety of our employees and the minimization of our impact on our community and the environment, “said Merichem’s President, Patrick Hickey. “Implementation of the KMI system will allow us to leverage our existing EHS management resources to take our performance to an even higher level. The software will enhance our ability to report, track, investigate, and correct existing and emerging hazards in order to further improve our organizational risk management program.”
Matt Airhart, Director of Business Development for KMI adds, “Merichem approached KMI with a clear understanding of their needs and wants for an EHS management system to support their growing corporate safety culture. KMI’s ability to meet their needs and wants with an out-of-the-box solution allowed KMI to offer Merichem a system that was both quick to rollout across the organization and cost effective with the expectation of a prompt return on investment.”
The KMI EHS Suite will be rolled out to Merichem this spring with delivery expected August 2010.
