ECOLAB reduces business risks by improving legal compliance with Red-on-line

The Company

ECOLAB is the global leader in water, hygiene and infection prevention solutions and services. They provide comprehensive solutions, data-driven insights and personalised service to industry sectors such as food, healthcare, paper and hospitality. Headquartered in Switzerland, ECOLAB EMEA has 35 industrial facilities across the region including several top tier Seveso/COMAH sites handling highly hazardous chemicals with strict regulatory standards.

The Challenge

ECOLAB had growing concerns of their business risks driven by the lack of awareness of the EHS legal compliance levels of their sites across the EMEA region. To reduce their business risks, they wanted a comprehensive solution to: 

  • Implement a standardised EHS compliance approach across EMEA.
  • Identify gaps in EHS legal compliance and internal process safety standards.
  • Improve EHS legal compliance by implementing corrective actions.
  • Anticipate forthcoming EHS regulatory changes.
  • Assist the senior management team with essential data to facilitate effective decision making.

The Solution

Red-on-line’s compliance solutions provided ECOLAB with a tailored legal register comprising extensive EHS regulatory content, including the complex ADR and COMAH/Seveso guidelines. Red-on-line legal experts around the world track and evaluate relevant regulations and amendments that apply to ECOLAB sites, saving them the hassle of investing time and resources in monitoring regulatory changes. 

The Action Plan module in the Red-on-line EHS software allows users to create and execute corrective actions to tackle non-compliance. Highly customisable dashboards in the platform allow ECOLAB users to create unique visuals to monitor and measure KPIs and metrics that are critical to their divisional and functional objectives.

The Result

Since implementing Red-on-line EHS solutions in 2016, ECOLAB boasts an overall compliance score of 87% with some sites achieving compliance levels of over 90%, and the compliance rate of progress across sites have been consistent at 90%. But more importantly, for all compliance-related investment decisions, ECOLAB’s senior management team trust the data from Red-on-line EHS platform.
