Documentation is the Best Offense - The Yellow Box

Posted: 2/25/2014 | Views: 6924

First impressions can mean everything especially when dealing with a regulatory inspection. If your manifests and documentation are orderly, the impression given to an Inspector is that the rest of your business is also in order. It also indicates that you pay close attention to the details involved in maintaining a safe and environmentally compliant business. Proper documentation also gives evidence of compliance as it is often stated that “if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen.”

The Yellow Box is a one stop shop, simple way of compiling all the documentation of a vibrant Safety and Environmental Program. Unfortunately, it often becomes a foot rest or is forgotten in the recesses of the Parts Department, when the documentation contained may be the difference between huge fines and penalties or proof of compliance. Your KPA Engineer will periodically review your documentation but it is especially important that you, as the ultimate owner of your Environmental and Safety Program, are well aware of what documents are housed in the Yellow Box.
