Software Updates for February 2017

ERA Environmental is committed to providing your business with EH&S software that lasts a lifetime. Our team of researchers and scientists work every day to roll out upgrades, new reports, and improvements. Every month we'll publish a summary of these new features here for you. Have any questions about these updates? Let us know at [email protected]

General

  • All Modules, Chemical Emissions Summary, Rolling 24 Months by Group: New capabilities have been added to display lb/hour averages and limits to this report. For permit compliance, users can now display monthly, 12-month rolling, and lb/hour emissions per chemical with limits for each group. This can be used for any permit compliance requirement, and is especially useful for Texas MAERT compliance demonstration.

Waste

  • Waste Import - Distribution by Group: New functionality has been added for waste imports when distributing waste to multiple sources and applying a maximum distribution for Solvent sources. There is new "Reprocess all" checkbox at the Group level which automates the distribution calculation when accounting for multiple shipments within a month. 

Training

  • Subject Creation Prompt: When Importing a training event, if the subject was not specified in the system,the system previously created them by default. This addition warns the user regarding subject creation.This helps to prevent spelling mistakes in the import.
  • Duplicate Name Fix: When Importing a training event, the system previously name the event twice. For instance, a training event would be called "Subject A - Subject A". This fix ensures the title is only inputted once. 

Finishing / Coating

  • Usage Import - Distribution by Production: A new option has been added for further automation when importing usage and distributing by production records. Users can now pre-select the destination source or group for distribution based on production records.

    1. User logged in must have a contact associated with their user account.
    2. User must be “Assigned To” contact for task(s).

    3. Note: The event will ONLY be displayed in the widgets if the user is the Assigned to contact OR a supervisor of an Assigned to contact.
    4. The Widget will only display events due within the next two weeks.

Inspection

  • Main gird on new dynamic form for Masonite can be updated based on the information added on the dynamic form. 
  • S4, S5 and S6 reports have been updated to be able to show multiple sections of body parts, incident type, injury type and object involved. 

Tier II Report

  • Organization and User Interface Upgrade: The Tier II processing page has been reorganized to streamline processing options and to retain records year-on-year. Processing is now completed through a wizard, which leads users through progressive steps to select the appropriate processing type. When processing based on usage records, the sources selected are now saved and retained in the project. 
  • Processing for Storage Tanks: Tier II processing has been improved to better report maximum quantities in bulk storage tanks. If no throughput is added to a tank in the reporting year, a new capability has been added to search previous throughput records to calculate the amount of material remaining in the tank.

SDS Viewer

  • Interface - New search criteria was introduced to the Employee Portal. Now, users are able to find documents by searching by internal ID.
