The importance of an integrated EHS Platform


November 9, 2020

Protecting employees from workplace safety issues is a primary concern for companies worldwide. EHS technology gathers and manages comprehensive data from the environmental, health and safety management of an organization. This data is processed to provide incident insights, enable businesses to put precautionary steps in place. The righteous EHS software simplifies management by integrating forms, workflows, alerts, dashboards in a centralized location.

The current trend is that customers are looking for integrated EHS software that enables them to connect, control and collaborate across the enterprise.  According to Verdantix, Companies that integrate their current environmental, health and safety systems (EHS) with quality management systems (QMS) take a more proactive approach to risk. While some industries are more likely to silo, there is evidence that combining the two functions into one business entity may be a good move forward.

So why exactly is integration so important? And how it can be beneficial for businesses?

With traditional technologies, companies are having to deal with many different safety tools that are not connected, leaving gaps in insights and creating a barrier to informing downstream systems.

The integration and centralization of data enhance the visibility of patterns to mitigate future health and safety issues. Using this information, robust return-to-work programs can be developed and implemented. Management can run smoother and emphasis on business development and furtherance.


Reduce Costs

The businesses will reduce their cost by moving from redundant software to highly configurable EHS software. If the software can fulfil the various needs of different branches or departments and the business requirements as a whole, it diminishes the multiple systems necessity. The integrated platform also reduces operational expenses and enhance the bottom line of the company.


Align policies and procedures

Perhaps the most critical factor why companies adopt EHS tools is to ensure regulatory enforcement. Government regulation can alter unexpectedly. To help businesses keep up with these updates, using the integrated EHS platform is easy-going. It keeps up-to-date on OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and other regulatory organizations’ rules and collects data to report KPIs. This eliminates penalties applicable to non-compliance.


Connect Employee

The companies have hundreds of staff scattered around various offices and locations; it is difficult to keep everybody on the same page. EHS platform puts together all the data and tasks in one centralized location to work together and do more. Employees can record and synchronize data remotely, even offline, to the central database. The latest software innovations allow workers to capture real-time insights, including pictures and videos, from an iPad or tablet.


Increased Transparency

The integrated software allows businesses to report on critical metrics more efficiently. Dynamic dashboards allow executives to see where they stand at all times. And with the assistance of automated reminders and notifications, the need-to-know team can remain updated about important indicators in real-time and from anywhere. In addition to external reporting, the software empowers transparency within the corporation.
