The Key Components of a Successful EHS&S Software System
"The software application is only as good as the people utilizing it...The people have to leverage the tool, you have to actually utilize it. So software also has to be really user-friendly...We want everybody to utilize it, we want everybody to engage in our EHS processes and let us know if there are hazards in the workplace. So it has to be something that's simple for folks to use, but on the back end it has to have data that, once again, can be turned into actionable items."
