BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 13, 2011) - Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), announces the release of its latest report, Compliance Management in Environment, Health and Safety. The study correlates specific business capabilities and technology enablers to create a socially responsible culture.

Organizations are often challenged with the myriad of Environmental, Health, and Safety (EH&S) regulations that need to be complied with across the enterprise. While finding information in a timely fashion is a constant challenge, the uncertainty surrounding change in future regulations and the complexity of managing regulations across different regions consistently haunts industrial organizations. Companies are looking for ways to reduce the cost of compliance, improve the safety of people, products, and processes, and surpass corporate goals around sustainability.

"The most successful firms are responding to these pressures by enabling visibility into key compliance data and utilizing this information to improve production processes," explains Nuris Ismail, research associate, Aberdeen Group. Adds Matthew Littlefield, senior research analyst, Aberdeen Group, "By creating visibility into this key information, these top performers are impacting their operations by reducing the number of regulatory citations by 12%, achieve a 0.3 recordable injury frequency rate, and over-achieve operating margin goals by 13%." This new research will examine how manufacturers can intelligently increase production and performance with an eye towards EH&S compliance. Readers can use this report to understand the lessons learned from the top performers while avoiding the pain points and obstacles encountered by their peers.
