Cloud technology enables Stanislaus County Division of Environmental Resources to enforce health and safety regulations across nearly 10,000 facilities with hazardous materials and waste to uphold community wellbeing
(San Ramon, Calif. – December 15, 2020) – Accela, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for government, today announced Stanislaus County Division of Environmental Resources will leverage its cloud-based solutions to streamline the management of hazardous materials and waste to improve community health and safety. Accela’s highly configurable software will enable the Division to protect residents from these hazards by applying statewide standards under the authority of California’s Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) and local ordinance. “Today, modern cloud technology is essential in helping agencies keep up with evolving state and local health regulations,” said Darryl Booth, Accela’s General Manager for Environmental Health. “This project is exciting because the Stanislaus County Division of Environmental Resources will join other county divisions on the Accela platform, fulfilling the promise of integrated, shared access between and among departments. It requires notable leadership to build bridges between traditional departmental silos, even in local government, and we are proud to work with Stanislaus as they streamline communications and increase transparency to improve public health and safety outcomes.” With Accela, the Division of Environmental Resources will be able to issue permits, manage inspections, and enforce health and safety policies across nearly 10,000 facilities with hazardous materials and waste. The system will also help the Stanislaus Hazardous Materials Department streamline electronic communication with California’s Environmental Reporting System (CERS), a critical measure of statewide compliance, monitoring, and enforcement. The Division of Environmental Resources is dedicated to protecting the environment and public health and safety for the County and its nine incorporated cities. Stanislaus’ hazmat field inspectors use computers in the field to plan their day, review facility history, capture inspection details, and record their time. Hazmat inspectors also serve to educate operators on required practices and how to meet all their obligations.
