The strength of a company’s compliance record directly affects its reputation and even its ability to expand its operations or gain permits.
It is therefore extremely important that employees have the information they need to act correctly and fully understand the laws, regulations and policies that govern their daily responsibilities at work. Compliance training is thus key to ensure that all rules are respected.
The key objectives of compliance training are to:
- ensure that employees are aware of their compliance responsibilities;
- mitigate the risk of compliance breaches;
- encourage a better workplace culture;
- remove legal liability from an organisation in the event of wrongdoing;
- protect the organisation’s reputation.
Given that companies in the chemicals, plastics and life sciences industry are operating in a heavily regulated environment, essenscia organises various training sessions in different areas of expertise. In 2016, it provided 11,247 training hours to 1,504 employees of 477 companies. Workshops and training sessions were mainly organised on safety, health and environmental issues, social policy matters and product policy topics.
Since 2010, essenscia’s product policy training team has been recognised by the Qfor quality label and is an accredited training provider for SMEs. This was successfully prolonged in 2013, and also extended to training courses organised by the social department.
