Compliance: EHS - Screen ShotCompliance: EHS
Compliance: EHS is designed to conduct environmental, health and safety assessments/audits for government and corporate entities. The software fulfills the requirements for a periodic assessment required under the ISO 14000 standard for corporate customers. It also satisfies the requirement of establishing an Environmental Assessment program for government agencies as stipulated in EO 13148 - Greening the Government Through Leadership In Environmental Management.

This product was purchased by the United States Forest Service and is being used nationwide to conduct the environmental assessments.

Compliance: EHS is designed to work on a laptop for field use or in a networked environment, enabling the system to fit a variety of organizational requirements. Compliance: EHS is divided into two modules: Administration and Findings.

The Administration Module is used to customize the program, instead of forcing users into a predefined assessment model.

The Administration Module is used to: create and modify protocols, define unique scoring for an assessment, build a hierarchal model of any organization and define security privilege profiles.

The Findings Module is use by assessment personnel to describe incidences of non-compliance and tie them to a location and a protocol. The Findings module (depending on user security privileges) has the following features:

Create and modify your organizational structure
Attach pictures to findings
Create and modify findings
Enter solutions and cost estimates
Track corrective actions associated with responsible personnel
Print reports for planning and management
Search for regulations and findings
E-mail assessment data to management or other team members

The search tool helps assessment personnel retrieve a specific finding or set of findings, and full-scale reporting functions allow for delivery of:

Detailed finding sheets for quality review
Summarized and prioritized breakdowns of your problem areass
Cost summaries for budgeting
Corrective action status so you can monitor the progress of your solutions
Provide feedback to upper management

The protocols loaded into the system are the comprehensive TEAM guide and safety protocols developed by the US Army Corps of Engineers Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL). However, any protocol or policy may be entered into the system.

The software also enables users to track the corrective action progress associated with Findings. The Action Tracking screen allows the organization to note the costs and the steps taken to resolve the problem areas.

HSMS Services
Mannus and its personnel have been involved with the Hazardous Substance Management System (HSMS) since the program’s introduction into the DOD. The HSMS system is used by DOD activities to manage their centralized “pharmacies” where Hazardous Materials on a military installation are tracked from “cradle to grave.”

Mannus personnel are uniquely qualified to work with and improve the data manipulation and integrity of the system. The blend of computer and environmental expertise are mandatory in order maximize the potential of HSMS. Mannus has developed specialized capabitlities to supplement HSMSs weaknesses in the areas of data entry and reporting.

Mannus has developed tools to interface standard government data systems with HSMS. The two primary data sources that Mannus uses are the Fedlog and the Hazardous Materials Information System (HMIS).

Additional sources include site specific Pollution Prevention Plans or any other electronic source of data that has information compatible with HSMS. The tool was designed to perform four tasks: searching, comparing extracting and uploading.

The search feature was designed to look for Manufacturer (CAGE), NSN, Part Number, MilSpec, CAS Number, HMIS MSDS number, and any searchable field in FedLog or HMIS. The results were compared to inventory data collected in the field or residing in other HM tracking systems (HICS, etc) to find matches. When a match was identified the tool extracted all of the data in the standard systems to populate the required fields in HSMS. The matches were stored in a Microsoft Access format and cross-checked by the environmental and logistics personnel to insure that the correct data was identified. The tool was then used to upload the data from the Access data to the HSMS system.

The link from Access to the Oracle was processed by developing table links through extensible markup language (XML). This process has enabled Mannus to load the Material, Manufacturer and MSDS tables accurately and in significantly less time than a hand searching and loading operation. Mannus’s goal for data entry side of HSMS is to develop a tool to allow users to enter a NSN and a CAGE code and the system would automatically extract the information from Fedlog and populate HSMS. This same tool would be used to extract MSDS data from HMIS and populate HSMS.

Mannus has the knowledge of HSMS and software programming to develop Crystal Reports or develop custom reporting software. Mannus personnel have modified numerous Crystal Reports for various customers to meet site-specific reporting requirements. In addition, Mannus programmers have developed custom reporting tool to provide EPCRA and Pollution Prevention reports from HSMS. The tool allows users to obtain inventory and usage information organized by location, chemical constituents and product name. The tool was developed for Fort Knox in the Delphi programming language and was distributed as shareware at the Tri Services Pollution Conference.

The newest Mannus product to support HSMS is the Authorized Use List and the Ordering Module. These systems enable the HSMS system to be migrated to the activity level without installing the HSMS client or purchasing additional Oracle licenses. The modules allow activity personnel to request and order hazardous materials via a browser. This system saves the activities and the Hazardous Material Pharmacy several steps in the material ordering and management process. The system allows the activity to order the materials on line and enables the pharmacy personnel to prepare the order before the activity sends the personnel to pick up the requested materials.

The system is built using Borland’s Delphi and ExpressWeb framework. The browsers send the requests to an Apache server that delegates them to the Mannus designed module. The module performs actions against the Oracle system and generates html to return to the browser. The submit order triggers a server based email is sent to the Hazardous Material Pharmacy personnel for processing.

FAA Environmental and Occupational Safety and Health Assessment Software
The FAA contracted Mannus personnel to construct an Environmental/Occupational Safety and Health Assessment tool designed for field personnel.

The FAA design called for the field tool to upload data to the Intranet/Oracle based Compliance and Project Management Modules. The system was also required to download software, protocol and facility updates. The system uploads and downloads using HTTP and XML with all data compressed for optimal performance and to maintain data integrity. The tool enables users the flexibility of preparing for assessments in different regions of the country and uploading the data once a viable connection to the intranet is established. This process also allows the firewall to be maintained as well as traditional security measures.

USACERL’s Team Guide Import
USACERL personnel process Microsoft Word Team Guide documents into Microsoft Access database using the Team Guide Import program. The tool is designed to aid Team Guide authors to standardize the development of the protocols and to provide database versions to its customers. The product converts Microsoft Word documents into a Microsoft Access database. The tool extracts data from Word and moves it into Access, enabling USACERL’s Team Guide Customers to use their protocols in a database environment.

WPAFB’s Environmental Quality (EQ) database
The EQ system is used by AFMC to request, approve and track funding for environmental projects. Mannus aided in the design and construction of the system using Delphi and a multi-tier Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) architecture over secure HTTP.

Mannus Corporation’s Internal Tools
Mannus has developed internal two internal tools used to increase the performance of the data analyst, while minimizing the input of the software programmer. The Data transform program enables the data analyst to load data into a high end server based database (Oracle, Informix) from a laptop based Microsoft Access or similar database. The system enables the data analyst to set up the data migration instructions in XML in order to perform the data translation. The tool, which is built using Delphi, allows the user to map key fields, replace serial numbers across numerous tables and allows the input of large volumes of data directly into the target system.

The Data Evaluation tool is constructed in Microsoft’s newest development language C# (C-Sharp). The tool allows the data analyst to develop scoring rules in XML that are used to compare similar data or groups of data fields. The goal of the comparison is to select the best group of data from the data sets and to set the resultant set as primary reference database. This “winning” data set is then presented in a report comparison format against the data that was used as the evaluation set in order for the data analyst to check the validity of the normalized data set. The rules may be changed and the data re-evaluated prior to replacing existing data with the new reference data base.
