Over the past year, health and safety leaders in the retail industry have had to adapt quickly, not only to keep stores running, but also to ensure they are doing so safely. “Navigating the pandemic is like changing the tires on a moving car,” said one of the retail Health and Safety Managers. Many retailers found themselves getting creative with business models. Grocery stores implemented in-store safety measures to keep their doors open while other retailers shifted to filling online orders in-store to relieve stress on distribution centers.
ST. PAUL, Minn., April 22, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Antea Group USA introduced a new service to their Health and Safety offerings called Event and Production EHS Support. As in-person events are slowly making a return, event owners are considering the associated environment, health and safety (EHS) risks more than ever before.
SAINT PAUL, Minn., April 22 2021 /3BL Media/ - In celebration of Earth Day, Antea Group is proud to announce that our organization has joined forces with the REMADE Institute, signing a pledge to accelerate the nation’s transition to a Circular Economy, increase the efficiency of resource use in manufacturing, reduce emissions, conserve resources, and create and sustain clean economy jobs.
The business world at large is in a disorienting state of limbo. Some of us are working from home, others are back at the office. Some expect to be back at the office soon while others are content to continue working from home.
For EHS leaders, this ambiguity is hard to navigate. In many ways, this hybrid dynamic is even more complex than dealing with the demands of a workforce that’s fully remote.
These days, it’s no secret that environment, health, and safety (EHS), and sustainability professionals wear many hats within an organization. From ensuring EHS compliance (in a not-so-assured world) and risk management to employee training and streamlining operations to preparing EHS audit checklists — you have a big job to do.
On March 30, 2021 we welcomed close to 50 tech industry professionals from around the world to join us for a virtual EHSxTech meeting to discuss the ongoing changes and challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
ST. PAUL, Minn., April 1, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Climate Change Business Journal (CCBJ) presented its annual CCBJ Business Achievement Awards for outstanding business performance in 2020. Antea Group was honored with an award in the “Consulting and Engineering” category under the topic of “Energy and Carbon Management.”
Leadership Perspectives on Building a Resilient Business, Adapting to Client Needs and Prioritizing Employee Wellbeing
Like many firms in the Engineering and Consulting Industry, 2020 proved to be a challenging business environment for us. Employees were forced to work from home, much of our routine work was put on hold or delayed, and clients quickly required a new set of services to help them navigate COVID-19-related business challenges. A year into the global pandemic, we asked executive leadership to reflect on what we’ve learned and how we’ve managed to weather the storm, while also providing a glimpse of what’s in store for the future.
Ongoing learning is essential for every Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) professional if you want to grow your career and effectively manage program initiatives in a fast-changing industry. And while in-person industry events may be put on hold, there are still other resources available to help you stay up to date on all things EHS and Sustainability related.
Helping your distributed team return to the workplace while they navigate the stress and pressures of a pandemic … this wasn’t exactly in the EHS job description.
But environment, health, and safety leaders are in the unique position of being able to make a very real impact on the lives of employees at a time when we’re all taking tentative steps back towards normalcy.
