About this Book
This book presents an approach-termed MERITT (Maximizing EHS Returns by Integrating Tools and Talents)-for enhancing process development through better integration of environmental, health, and safety evaluations. It draws upon critical components of inherent safety, pollution prevention, green chemistry, and related paradigms through selective adoption and adaptation of their existing tools, skills, and knowledge resources. MERITT offers ways of enhancing existing best practices of organizations that are recognized leaders in developing and conducting coordinated EHS evaluations through increased awareness and recognition throughout all levels of the organization (engineers, chemists, project managers, and business leaders).
