The OESuite® Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Compliance Framework provides a comprehensive solution to ensure your license to operate remains intact, providing vital components to protect people, processes, facilities, and the planet.
Safe, environmentally compliant operations depend on emissions management as a foundation, including air, water, waste, chemical inventory, and task / compliance management. To enhance compliance assurance, companies need to break down existing silos within their organizations to drive improved efficiency. We make that easier, even with all the complexity that must be addressed in asset-intensive industries.
EHS compliance personnel need to be able to be able to document compliance information and access real-time information on permit conditions in the field from mobile devices. Having access to emissions monitoring information from data historians and enabling compliance activities to be conducted during operator rounds improves efficiency and enhances the ability to address possible exceedances before they lead to potential consent decrees. In addition, EHS personnel can use our mobile applications to enable field personnel to log incidents and near misses, conduct audits, commission changes, and initiate changes in the field. The result is enhanced compliance assurance, lower risk, and improved operational efficiencies.
The OS EHS Compliance Framework enhances compliance assurance through integration of key reporting functions. The outcome of the integration is Total Compliance Management. All of these compliance obligations can be managed in the OS Task / Compliance Management Module and form the initial basis for a risk registry to enable Operational Performance Assurance.
Key integration points include:
Today’s regulatory environment is complex. Companies want to maximize production without putting their privilege to operate at stake. Compliance constrains operations, yet operations is the engine that drives financial performance and enables business strategy. We understand this is a delicate balance. Put our deep industry experience to work to help you achieve your EHS Compliance objectives.
In recent years, industry has begun to move away from safety and compliance outcomes to focus on risk. With the emergence of Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) efforts, companies will need to move beyond tackling EHS compliance at the facility level to create a risk registry across their fleet that is a scorecard which feeds corporate ESG reporting.
The typical EHS-first view ignores real risks that can have significant impact on an organization’s future. To manage risk effectively, companies must evolve beyond the traditional check-the-box compliance mentality, while keeping financial and legal exposure to a minimum. This is why Operational Risk Management (ORM) has emerged as a leading industry practice and Operational Sustainability® (OS) offers its clients a holistic approach to this challenge.
While EHS compliance is necessary to maintain your license to operate, having a holistic ORM framework move organizations away from after-the-fact, reactive compliance. This risk foresight is a key ingredient for identifying threats before they materialize.
