NeoGraf gains full compliance visibility using Frontline EHS

Meet NeoGraf

NeoGraf is a leading producer of graphite and carbon materials.

They have operations across Europe, Asia, and the Americas, and serve clients in industries ranging from construction to telecommunications.

Industry: Manufacturing

Company Size: 50+ employees

Challenges: Struggling with manual EHS processes and limited oversight

Solutions: Frontline ACT, MOC, LMS

For more than 130 years, NeoGraf Solutions has specialized in the production of high-quality carbon and graphite materials. From graphite powders and flakes to fuel cell batteries and automotive gaskets, their products have many uses. 

This versatility has allowed NeoGraf to support many industries, including: 

  • Transportation 
  • Manufacturing 
  • Telecom 
  • Energy 
  • Construction 
  • Electronics 

One of its amazing achievements was the invention of a graphite fluid sealant that replaced asbestos as a common building material. And other products like their GrafGuard® expandable flakes have helped prevent common fire hazards. 

Behind the scenes, NeoGraf needed a way to coordinate the completion of its ISO 14001 goals. They turned to our team at Frontline Data Solutions for an EHS software system that could automate their action tracking and training. Since the implementation of this solution, NeoGraf has seen a positive shift in their safety culture and overall compliance. 

The challenge of adopting a new software system 

Getting buy-in for a new software system is difficult at all levels. NeoGraf’s diverse employee base had varying levels of computer skills and interests. They knew that they needed to streamline and standardize their EHS management, but they also needed a system that all their employees could easily adopt. 

User-friendly tools and reports 

The Frontline EHS software suite provided NeoGraf with a user-friendly option for their workers. In their own words, “even the employees who were hesitant or less tech-savvy at the start were able to use the software system.” With Frontline’s intuitive workflows, NeoGraf employees were able to adopt the software quickly and move the majority (if not all) of their tasks to the cloud. 

The need for greater transparency 

The team needed more visibility when it came to the recording and completion of EHS projects and daily tasks. With a core value of integrity, it was very important that employees could work transparently. 

Automated reports and simpler action tracking 

The centralized reporting capabilities of our cloud-based solution made oversight incredibly easy and simple. Features like the EHS event database, report notifications and reminders, and task assignments ensured no overlap between workers. It also helped NeoGraf track critical tasks related to their ISO 14001 compliance.

“The software has given me back an invaluable amount of time. If you’re worried about your employees being able to understand and adopt this type of setup, we’ve seen really great usage at our company. It’s completely worth it to switch.”

Amy Higgins, HSE Coordinator
