TurboPlan

You can use it to report your efforts and opportunities to reduce dangerous waste generation and hazardous substance use. It also charts your data over time, showing trends in production, chemical use, waste, and energy consumption.

Access TurboPlan any time of day. Remember to submit your plan by September 1 each year.

History

This pull-down menu allows you to change the number of years of data displayed. You can choose between viewing the current year, up to ten years, or all reported data that has been loaded into TurboPlan.

Active/Inactive Status

This pull-down menu allows you to display only active elements of the plan or all active and inactive elements. If you are viewing active elements only, an inactive Process/Product/Opportunity/Environmental Effect is hidden from view.

Validate

Clicking the validate button provides links to sections in the plan with missing data. All blanks must be filled in. Once in Edit mode, the field with missing data will be highlighted yellow. Once all elements are completed, a button will show up for you to [Send the Plan to Ecology]. Click [Accept] to submit your plan.

Editing

You may need to enter [Edit] mode to add data or make changes. There is no auto–save function. You must click [Save] or [Update] to save changes. Click [Cancel] to exit edit mode without making changes.

Saving

If two parties are entering data on the same page at the same time, the last party to save that page overwrites any previous changes without warning. If two parties are on separate pages, they can both save and their changes will be saved.
