Congratulations to SoundEarth’s Chris Kitchen, who won the Excellence in Presentation Award for Young Professionals at the Air & Waste Management Association’s Pacific Northwest International Section Annual Conference! Chris gave two presentations at the conference – one on developing dynamic Environmental Management Systems and one on keeping industrial facilities inspection-ready.
His presentation on keeping industrial facilities inspection-ready was the award winner. The focus was about being proactive, working with government regulators, and how to stay organized for the inevitable inspection.
The presentation started with an outline focusing on how to prepare for regulatory inspections, preparing all employees, and staying prepared from that point on. He went into the details of what basic information a facility manager would need to know before any inspection takes place, how to act during the inspection itself, how to procure pertinent information through self- and third-party audits, how to utilize the entire team at the facility, and ways to stay organized for future visits.
All in all a wonderful weekend full of useful presentations, and once again, great job Chris!
