If effectively applied, Environmental, Health, and Safety management strategies can drive profitability and 'Operational Excellence' initiatives.
The ongoing goal of achieving regulatory compliance is also driving better EHS management strategies.
Barriers to EHS Progress
Poor collaboration, disconnected IT, and visibility to effectiveness are the leading barriers to manufacturers' EHS success.
The Reactive Approach
Too few businesses are availing themselves of the latest EHS software, meaning they are managing their initiatives with disparate programs, spreadsheets, documents, etc. This 'reactive approach' will impact performance and profitability.
Identifying EHS Risk
The right enterprse-wide EHS software will support a risk-management-focused approach. But that requires a technology strategy to align risk management with EHS.
There are identifiable advantages to mobile EHS solutions, including real-time response and evaluation, real-time visibility, better compliance rates, among others.
Top EHS Metrics for Manufacturing
Injuries, lost-time accidents (LTA), and 'near misses' represent the leading KPIs for EHS performance.
Unaffordable Risk of Non-Compliance
Notwithstanding the importance of EHS management, three-quarters of all manufacturers have no strategy or plans to capture supplier EHS data - which will grow more problematic for organization's brands and profitability.
