SAP EHS - INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE AND RISK ASSESSMENT
eSpheres consultants help you to deploy SAP EHS - Employee Health and Safety – Industrial Hygiene and Risk Assessment module. It enables to manage hygiene and safety related information and measures, performance of risk assessments; to create of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and a hazardous substances register.
The basis of the industrial hygiene and safety management process are:
- The definition of workplaces and a workplace hierarchy in the company.
- The hygiene and safety impacts on employees (concentration of chemical agents in the air, noise, bright light, posture stress etc.)
- The related safety measures with respect to the workplaces.
- The impacts are summarized and evaluated in a risk assessment. Ratings allow you to rank the impacts according to seriousness.
When processing or handling hazardous substances, it may be legally required or is at least advisable to post so-called Standard Operating Procedures, containing, among other information, emergency first aid measures and disposal recommendations. The necessary substance specific data is maintained in the EH&S specification database, and using the workplace hierarchy that was defined, SOPs can be assigned to the individual workplaces. The creation of the SOPs is similar to the creation of Material Safety Data Sheets, with defined steps to release a SOP and management of historical and current versions.
