Take Down Risks with EHS Management Software

The goal of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) organizations is to protect employees, the public and the environment.  With that goal comes large responsibility. How can EHS organizations prevent incidents and accidents that can occur within every day operations? How can managers reduce the amount of incidents and mitigate the chance of threats from coming back? It sounds like a daunting task, but with automated technology it doesn’t have to be.

Risk Management within the EHS Management System keeps up with regulatory agencies and their rules. It ensures that your organization is able to abide by environmental controls set in place to protect the health and safety of individuals and the environment. Through the software, companies are able to spot threats before they become a hazard and are able to report on such risks to foster continuous improvement.

With Risk Management software tools, users can create risk templates, apply risk parameters and integrate risk throughout all compliance processes to effectively filter and assess threat levels within all events. Not only this, but risk management can also contain problems at the source.

Risk Assessment works by first collecting all data. The system identifies events at their route cause. Once it determines what the possibilities could be it isolates and categorizes similar events from other compliance processes.

It also filters events by critical and noncritical. This gives you visibility into the most critical events that require a corrective action so you can start on the immediate resolutions they need.

After identifying threats and deciding on appropriate actions to take, the ability to configure risk parameters gives you insight into the likelihood of each event along with the severity. This provides a consistent method for analyzing risk and uses a step-by-step analysis to tell exactly where the risk lies. Later displaying like investigations and corrective actions with an effectiveness check plan. This effectiveness check plan decides if the event was handled in the best manner along with the results that prove it was solved. Risk Mitigation history prevents the situation from arising again in the future and shows what tactics were used to put a stop to similar threats.

EHS Management software recognizes the need for visibility and control. It has the necessary tools to take you from a siloed solution to an integrated, automated solution with the primary tools for fostering safety and compliance. Most EHS organizations are unique to their own needs. Although they stand for the same things, they have different ways of completing tasks. EHS Management software provides the right amount of flexibility needed to be productive along with unique measures to meet the needs of its users.

From an internal point of view, EHS Management enables you to report on the status of events, search and filter for data and generate colorful meaningful reports to help make better decisions. From a regulatory or management perspective this helps make sense of all information and generate the outcome into a full report to provide full visibility into all data.
