National Safety Council Recognizes UMass Lowell Software


LOWELL - The University of Massachusetts Lowell has received national recognition for development of environmental management software.

Rich Lemoine, director of UMass Lowell's Environmental Health and Safety Department, and former graduate student Mikunj Joshi will receive the award from the Campus Safety, Health and Environmental Management Association, a division of the National Safety Council, for their creation of EMS Webware.  The Award of Recognition in the Unique or Innovative Category will be presented during the International Conference on Campus Safety in Philadelphia on July 20.

EMS Webware is a web-based software application that gives agencies the ability to create and administer an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) Environmental Management System (EMS).  EMS Webware is the first software developed primarily for on-campus use that will be sold on the open market by UMass Lowell.

"This product gives you the opportunity to develop, manage, audit and control documents from a single station, on an intranet or the Web," Lemoine said.

It was selected for the distinction from national and international submittals received from colleges and universities.
