Managing compliance with EHS software is the best way to stay up-to-date with the ever-changing regulations and advisories that affect your company. By using automated business intelligence to generate in-depth and accurate reports, EHS software can provide companies with innovative digital solutions, making it easier than ever to ensure they are meeting regulatory, industry health, environment safety, and risk management compliances.
As the name might suggest, EHS software deals with multiple environmental, health, and safety factors. By correlating vast amounts of relevant information through one centralised data management application, companies are able to track trends, analyse long-term changes and build a more robust, dynamic risk assessment strategy.
Whether your company employs ten or a thousand workers, there is an EHS software platform that can support your business, but with so many providers to choose from, how can you know you’re getting the best fit?
Here are some deciding factors you should keep in mind before making your choice:
It might seem an obvious place to start, but software price isn’t always an indicator of value. With most appliances costing anything from £5-£500 per month, knowing your budget can be a quick way of streamlining your search.
While the basics like Audit Management, Risk Assessments and Incident Management might be universal requirements, paying for software that prioritises Waste Management or Occupational Health Management might not be necessary, especially if you work with third party operators. Break your requirements down into the essential fundamentals, the bonus features you’d find helpful, and the unneeded functions.
The best technology in the world is only as good as the person using it. Be sure to check out reviews from other users, and take advantage of any free trials you might be offered. Most EHS software comes with in-built training, but what additional support is available to get your employees up to date and comfortable with their new tool?
The best innovations come from the people with their boots on the ground, who know their industry, its needs, and how best to support those around them. It’s always a good idea to do your homework and get to the roots of who designed a piece of EHS software and what their background is.
