EH&E (www.eheinc.com), a leading provider of environmental and engineering consulting services, has announced its EHS Automation Consulting services to help manufacturers achieve greater compliance, time and cost savings by automating their environmental health and safety (EHS) programs with Microsoft® SharePoint®.
“EHS programs, despite their critical role in manufacturing, are often managed outside a company’s information technology network. Many EHS programs, although requiring data input from many sources, and often from a variety of locations, are managed using Word documents and Excel spreadsheets. This is costly, time-consuming, and grossly inefficient,” said Bob Foster, Director of Automation Services.
“For many manufacturers, the solution can be found in their existing Microsoft SharePoint platform — the ubiquitous web-based information management platform that’s already in use for communications between people and departments throughout their company,” Foster said.
EH&E’s EHS Automation Consulting services team works with manufacturers to develop SharePoint-based applications that automate the process of collecting, analyzing, processing, and displaying information across the organization. EH&E is a leader in EHS consulting, providing EHS program development, compliance, and oversight services across a wide range of industries for 25 years.
EH&E works closely with EHS managers to seamlessly automate their current EHS processes using the SharePoint platform. For users, there’s virtually no change in workflow as they continue to access familiar Microsoft solutions. Data entry is streamlined across locations and devices — from desktop to mobile devices to electronic forms.
The greatest benefits of the system are reaped from the use of SharePoint functionality to auto-administrate work processes to vastly improve operational efficiency. Such automation can include managing multi-step workflows that can eliminate many administrative hours — including automatically initiating processes such as reviewing data for significant patterns, sending documents and forms to responsible parties for review, and ensuring that reports are properly completed in the required time.
Specific applications can range from the management and reporting of accidents and incidents, to safety inspections, chemical inventories, and training records.
“Tracking the due dates and the completion of various EHS tasks is a huge administrative burden in itself, and frequently consumes much of the manager’s time — to the extent that beneficial program initiatives often lay dormant as efforts are focused on maintaining basic compliance,” noted Foster.
By leveraging the SharePoint platform, EH&E provides manufacturers with a single software solution to address and integrate various program information and task requirements to produce a single program dashboard — for centralized reporting and analysis.
