So, you want to implement software to manage Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) related risk within your organization?
Managing risk is an important part of what an EHS professional does every day. I should know; I spent 15 years designing and running programs designed to maintain compliance, support operations, control costs, and most importantly…keep people safe.
In the early stages of a risk management program, you can get by with spreadsheets and access databases. However, as time goes on and the programs become bigger and you receive more visibility across your organization, you need more. You need a hazard analysis software platform that can help you identify, manage, prevent, and someday help you predict risk.
Over the next few blog posts, I’m going to talk about what it takes to make the transition from spreadsheets to a cloud based risk platform successful. I will answer a variety of critical questions, including:
- What should you know before undertaking this type of project?
- Which IT related terms should you be familiar with?
- What should go into the design of such a solution?
- How do you prepare your organization for go-live and what do you do after go-live to maintain the momentum and reap the benefits of your new tool?
