Bloomberg BNA recently declared the introduction of the Environment & Safety Resource Center.
This will serve as a complete platform for legal and regulatory developments, analysis, critical case law as well as environment, health & safety (EHS) news. This vibrant web source is a comprehensive EHS research and compliance resource, complementing Bloomberg BNA's renowned series of Resource Centers.
Bloomberg BNA's practice area libraries that include a comprehensive data on a specific subject on an intuitive interface led to the development of Resource Centers. A single site provides analysis, primary sources, news, and practices tools. In addition, topical searching for end-users and cross searching of all the customer-subscribed products is also available for a more rapid and efficient research.
The new Environment and Safety Resource Center integrates the content of Bloomberg BNA's popular Environment & Safety Library featured with improved functionality that includes more intuitive and interface that can be easily searched. Searches can be led across an extensive series of reference and information products, full-text references as well as cross-product hypertext links from products that are fully searchable. For instance, if 40 CFR 261 is mentioned in one of the EHS reports of Bloomberg BNA, the citation will show a full text of that specific regulation, being displayed on the Environment & Safety Resource Center.
In response to customer feed-back, the Right-to-Know Chart Builder was developed through which users can create custom compliance charts differentiating Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) from Emergency Planning’s state requirements. Besides creating this Chart Builder, the Environment & Safety Resource Center also consists of a subscriber feedback feature wherein customers can share their opinions regarding the product.
