Case Study: EHS Compliance for Plastic Factory

Location :
Bangkok, THAILAND
Industry :
Manufacturing (Plastic industry)
Service :
EHS Compliance

Background

Our client, a Japanese plastic products manufacturer, was supposed to have an internal EHS (Environment, Health and Safety) audit conducted by their headquarter in Tokyo, Japan. The Japanese manager of Thai factory was requested to answer the questionnaire about local environmental regulatory requirements prior to the visit of the audit team, though it was difficult for an expatriate to understand EHS regulatory framework and details written in Thai.

Our Approach

As it was a short notice, our team firstly supported the client to answer the questionnaire from Japan for the benefit of their internal audit program as a temporary measure. Subsequently , our team comprised of Japanese and Thai environmental experts, also conducted an external EHS Compliance audit to evaluate their environmental management practice. Findings were summarized in both in Japanese and Thai and the report was shared with head office in Japan for their information.

Our Value

 We clearly and objectively showed our client the compliance status of the factory. We also explained legal background to both Japanese manager and Thai local staffs for mutual understanding and future communication. We were also commissioned a follow-up activity to train and support local staffs continuously for a period of 1-year as a post-audit activity.
