How EHS Data Management Software can keep you Compliant

Organisational operations have moved beyond the traditions; compliance within
EHS frameworks are now more important than ever.
One of the most important topics today revolves around the environmental impacts organisation have to consider throughout all their operations. This falls under the umbrella of corporate social responsibility (CSR), where ensuring all aspects of an organisation’s actions are considered and account for any impacts imposed on external, as well as internal parties.
So what does this mean?
This means that maintaining a high standard of compliance with all the relevant regulations, guidelines, and legislation is vital yet complex. This can lead to disorganisation, leading you away from other more important tasks on your to-do list. One of these is ensuring the protection of employees across global operations. Complying with rigorous EHS regulations presents an ongoing challenge; but businesses must be ready to adapt to new regulations and have the systems in place to ensure compliance.
As the demand for increased EHS requirements in addition to compliance is imposed, there are many solutions that keep organisations at the forefront of EHS compliance. Management software tools are a rising prominence in sustainability reporting and drive significant growth in corporate EHS software platform investments, according to the Verdantix EHS Report.
There are now more software options available to handle EHS compliance management requirements than before. Our INX Safety, Compliance, and Risk Management systems are some of the solutions that cater to the EHS and compliance management requirements of organisations. Each is tailored to necessary requirements and industry regulations, with the INX Safety Solution package following logical workflows which can be determined by each company to allow the following, so that change can be implemented to ensure greater overall safety:
  • capturing and reporting incidents and events
  • conducting investigations
  • assigning tasks and actions
  • identifying causes
  • and assessing HSE trends through easy to use reporting
Providing organisations with the framework and tools for identifying, managing and reducing risks as guided by ISO standards, is what our INX Risk Management Solution package offers. The Solution allows for the identification and review of risks and hazards which can be easily submitted across the business. Risk management personnel can use the risk register to list sources, categorise and prioritise the risks and assess causes and impacts.
As well as the EHS and Risk Management solutions, the INX Compliance Solution centralises the management of compliances, stakeholders, communications and issues in one database to simplify the entire process. Issues or topics can be recorded, categorised, and analysed by creating communications relevant to the issue and associated stakeholders; that way everyone can stay informed.
Having systems in place that respond to industry standards and allow organisations to adapt to ever-changing requirements continues to be of prevalent importance. By increasingly focusing their EHS strategies on operational risk and improving business performance, organisations are prompting software providers to develop functionality to help them go beyond compliance and track areas such as incident management, performance analysis and management of change.
Looking to the future, we will see more companies continuing to integrate information from their systems for purposes beyond compliance into various reports, performance management and internal communications. Moving beyond the traditional compliance structures, it’s time to exceed expectations and realise the paramount essentiality of EHS management solutions.
