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.

Technology challenges

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.

Learn About the Key Benefits of Advanced EHS Information Management

  • Consistency – Improving and automating the data collection process has leads to more accurate, higher quality data. Drawing on reliable, centralized data helps to produce more consistent reports and drive environmental performance.
  • User friendly interface – streamlined user experience allows users to use the system with minimal training.
  • Collaborative working – Working closely with software providers and integrators allows companies to influence the direction of the implementation process and learn exactly how to adapt the system to their company's needs.
  • User engagement – The performance dashboards allow plant managers to gain a clearer view of their progress and spot opportunities for improvement.
  • Incident tracking – The system allows the ability to distinguish between incidents of different severities and quickly identify the most appropriate course of action.

Why advanced information management systems?
May 21, 2015, By Efrain Quiros

Complying with rigorous, ever-evolving EHS regulations presents an ongoing challenge. As of January 2015, for example, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) increased the expectations with new rules on reporting of workplace incidents. 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...

To Make the Most of an EHS & Sustainability Software Investment, Don’t Skimp on the Implementation

March 7, 2018

Software is a powerful tool for accelerating EHS & Sustainability performance, but even the best tool can fail if it’s not implemented well, according to a new NAEM report that was published today. At the heart of the findings in NAEM’s “Ready, Set, Implement: How to Successfully Deploy an EHS & Sustainability Software System” is that success—or failure— often comes down to how well the company mapped the system to its core processes, trained its users and sold the value to the organization.
