Has your EHS department entered the digital revolution?
Safety inspections are a natural part of the job for EHS managers. If you’ve been working in health and safety for any length of time, you may find that most inspections look and function the same, often without turning up anything too significant.
Software systems and cloud solutions empower organizations to become more effective at managing their EHS programs. EHS professionals are starting to realize this, but it can be challenging to know which system is best for their workplace.
Environmental, health and safety audits are a natural part of any organization, but that doesn’t make them any less intimidating. Whether you're new to EHS audits or you’ve done hundreds of them, you want to make sure the time you spend on audit tasks will be effective, profitable, and beneficial to your organization.
In 2017, cruise ships failed more health inspections than they had in the last ten years. In all, 14 ships received failing grades—which is a significant increase from 2016, when only two ships failed their inspections.
A new year is here, and there’s no better time to start something new in your EHS program. Use this time to take a closer look at what’s working well in your safety efforts, as well as incidents from the past year that might warrant improvements to your program.
Don’t let the name scare you – big data in this case refers to combining multiple data sources to detect trends, patterns, and insights outside of individual data sets. This concept is becoming more and more integrated with companies of all industries and sizes, from leading marketing initiatives to gauging turnover to monitoring sales and profits. But one of data’s biggest opportunities in the workplace is also one of its most underutilized: environmental health and safety departments.
With customers clamoring over the thrills of high-speed roller coasters and daring free falls in your amusement park, they don’t seem too concerned for their personal safety. But that’s because they expect your attractions to be safe. It’s not a conscious thought for most, especially since over 335 million people visit amusement parks each year and live to tell the tale.
Every department in your company uses metrics to track how well an area is performing, and your safety department is no exception.
