Enviro-Suite: Legal Register Portal
Developing a bespoke legislation portal to minimise the time and effort spent on identifying and maintaining legal and safety regulations.
When assessing the Environment, Health and Safety requirements of your business, the most daunting and time-consuming task is searching through legislation to identify what is relevant to your projects. However, it is imperative that this task is done well to ensure your business is legally compliant and safe.
To curtail time and confusion spent on searching through legislation and legal documents, RSK Business Solutions have developed an online legal portal to present client-applicable legal information coherently, concisely and comprehensibly.
Since 2008, RSK Business Solutions has been working with RSK’s Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) specialists to convert in-depth safety legislation knowledge into a fully bespoke Legal Register Portal. The tool provides clients with a comprehensive, yet manageable, list of legislation relevant to them, in the form of an interactive, customisable online register.
Our EHS team works with clients to review their business and projects and identify the legislation relevant to them. We then provide an up-to-date register covering only these applicable legal guidelines.
Within a register, legislation entries come with an editable ‘relevance and compliance’ section. Using this, a client is able to explain how these regulations are directly applicable to their business. They can insert hyperlinks, references to internal procedures and details of compliance, for example, to ensure their register is fully tailored. They can then use the register to mitigate any legal non-compliance and health and safety dangers.
The Legal Register Portal is used by over 15 corporations including MACE, Islabikes and LendLease.
Since 2012, MACE has found the tool “comprehensive and invaluable” to their business needs, it helps them “translate complex legislation into sector-specific and easy-to-understand guidance” for their teams.
In addition to the initial configuration of the register, RSK works closely with clients to provide periodic reviews to ensure the legislation is always current.
We also develop registers for countries outside the UK, including the Netherlands and the Republic of Ireland.
