Heading out today from the house to a warehousing distribution center? Or perhaps to an office, academic institution or medical facility? Or how about a manufacturing site? Chances are nearly perfect that your destination will be governed by many Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) policies, guidelines and procedures. Sometimes known as EH&S, the primary goals of program components include education, compliance and, importantly, the implementation steps necessary to safeguard life, property and the environment.
All US-based organizations are subject to EHS regulations detailed in the Code of Federal Regulations, which typically form the foundation of many individual EHS programs. EHS programs are really an overarching collection of laws, regulations, rules and procedures set in place to help protect our workforces, the general public and the environment at large from workplace-related hazards.
Enterprise-wide EHS initiatives encompass all mandated actions, activities and programs that are implemented to promote employee and patron well-being. They also typically outline compliance mandates, applicable policy and training requirements aimed at minimizing or eliminating environmental contamination. For example, keeping up with shifting federal, state and local mandates is certainly a critical program component as is assessing current safety programs and detailing incident response plans. With round-the-clock data flows and heterogeneous information sources, how do you pull all of your EHS data together?
Does your institution have a formalized EHS program to document all relevant risks to the organization, the public and the surrounding environment? Is your company prepared for proposed revisions to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations that will impact your operations? Or how about the ramifications to your facilities that result from of the next publication cycle of the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) 101® Life Safety Code?
Prevailing risk management requirements demand accessible computing technologies that include traditional core Risk Management Information System (RMIS) feature sets as well as additional tools that meet a wide array of EHS needs. Do you have the right tools for the job? Have you ever thought about integrating all relevant data impacting your company EHS programs and strategies into your RMIS tool set?
