Legacy data management tools can present challenges for global organizations. For example, rigid capabilities, limited access, manual data manipulation, and lack of internal support can make information management difficult to develop EHS engagement and management. With no support team and little opportunity to make changes, companies are increasingly seeking sophisticated data management tools to achieve greater visibility, better quality data, and more reliable, consistent reports.
In-house systems can present distinct usability and data quality challenges; they often lack a straightforward way to update information, with manufacturing plants unable to view data or compare year-on-year performance. Collecting data and calculating GHG emissions manually can often result in duplicated entries and inconsistent findings. Moreover, approving and reporting data can be complex and time-consuming, requiring team leaders to use external separate tools such as Excel for analysis. Investigating root causes of incidents and establishing corrective and preventive actions take place offline. Similarly, many companies struggle to manage audit results and follow-up actions within an integrated system.

Complying with rigorous, ever-evolving EHS regulations presents an ongoing challenge.

But EHS is not simply about meeting regulatory requirements. It is about preventing future incidents by acting on the information available so your organization can be safe, responsible, and ready to comply with complex legislation. Read more...
