The ability to be proactive when it comes to incidents within the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) industry plays a major part in an organization's safety overall. In the EHS industry, there is a focus on reducing job-related incidents, in order to promote a safer workforce and to maintain compliance with regulatory agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Tackling issues before they have a chance to arise and spread throughout the enterprise helps to ensure that potential events are stopped before they begin. Risk Management is one of the methods for mitigating adverse events.
Incorporating Risk Management into the EHS system will help foster quicker response time to high-risk events, improve safety within the job force, and promote proactive risk mitigation.
This white paper will describe the best practices of Risk Management for EHS systems, look into the technology available to help automate risk mitigation, and outline the benefits of implementing Risk Management in EHS organizations today.
