SESHA 2013 Symposium Abstract

Leveraging Technology for Effective EHS Management Systems Planning and Establishing Objectives

Mazzarella, Susan

Organizations who have, or are aiming to have, an ISO 14001 or OHSAS 18001 conformant management system need to perform some key Planning steps to ensure success. Common challenges in performing these steps, and keeping them up-to-date include change management and consistency. Technology solutions for this purpose are getting better and better. During this session, we will discuss the process for setting environmental aspects, occupational health and safety hazards, and Objectives (aka performance goals) as well as some of the common challenges. An example Risk Assessment (Job Hazard Analysis) software will be shown as part of this discussion.
