Emergency Response Regulations Register, Visualization, and Potential Fines


A new organization within the company took over the emergency response program for this larger global technology firm. The original request was to identify applicable emergency response requirements for offices, data centers, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities. The project evolved into creating a self assessment tool, data visualization of the site's responses, a research tool for Regional Managers, and regulatory risk calculator.
