SAP EHS Management for Beginners
It seems to be that it is time to have a document in place for beginners in SAP EHS Management. This FORUM has showed that there is a regular need to support beginners. On High Level the most important Tipps and Tricks or Information should be collected and published. On regular basis this document will be updated.
Please check as well on regular basis the FORUM SAP for Chemicals
You will find there a lot of helpful information as well. On top check: Sustainability & CSR
and take a look as well here: Product Compliance
Introduction / Career
On regular basis questions regarding how to start an EHS/EHSM career are coming up. Please use the “search” option in SCN to find threads regarding this topic or check the SCN Career platform. If you just “google” you will find a lot of job opportunities on functional, technical or manager level.
Please check for Career options: Career Center
You will find a lot of similar threads e.g.

As SAP HANA is as well a suitable approach which will be used more and more by SAP customers: a number of documents in context of use of EHS/HANA can be found using an inquiry in SCN; some of them have been now added in the document list. It can be expected that SAP will invest a lot of money and time to enable EHS to be used in SAP HANA context; SAP ERP 6.0 EnhPack 6 is released to be used with SAP HANA).
SAP goes on with the generation of new solutions and with a consolidation of solutions. S/4 HANA will be the successor solution of SAP ERP / SAP Business Suite etc. Pay attention:
- EHS Waste is NOT supported in S/4 HANA ==> NO SUCCESSOR SOLUTION AVAILABLE
- EHS IH is NOT supported in S/4 HANA (you must switch to EHSM)
- EHS OH is NOT suported in S/4 HANA ==> NO SUCCESSOR SOLUTION AVAILABLE
You willl find very helpful OSS notes and other documentaiton on this in SAP marketplace. Some discussion regarding this is still running in this FORUM. We need to wait now how SAP will consolidate the existing SAP EHS solutions in S/4 HANA.
SAP EHS Management as described here:
is part of a bunch of applications of the SAP Sustainibility approach as described here:
- Trainings are offered e.g. by SAP or by other providers (please check e.g. https://training.sap.com/v2/course/sus310-sap-ehs-management—essentials-and-functions-eef-classroom-096-de-de/)
- There is no certification available regarding SAP EHS Management
SAP EHS Management can be found easily in SAP marketplace. You can search for OSS Notes, try to understand differences between different SAP releases (e.g. based on different support package etc.) and try to understand the use of Business Functions in SAP EHS Management. Most important are OSS notes of type “Consulting”, “Additional Information” or which deals with upgrades/updates.
Be aware of the fact that depending on the license you have SAP EHS Management contains “more” or “less” software (please refer to discussion as part of this document).
There are some “must to read” OSS notes available regarding e.g.
- WWI Cookbook/WWI Setup
- Report distribution
- SVT installation
- Component Extension for SAP EHS Management (Installation/Migration topics etc.)
Regarding some other stuff you will not find suitable consulting OSS notes (e.g. DG related topics etc.).
SAP Licence model
SAP EHS Management is part of SAP ERP (if we talk about EHS classic). To understand the SAP license model is not easy. Therefore use your SAP contacts for help to get better understanding. E.g. Component Extension for SAP EHS Management is still an “add on” to SAP ERP. But this is only the “technical point of view”. The license perspective can be different. PAY ATTENTION: SAP is going on to align the current license strategy taking into account future enhancements of the software solution (software solution bundle).
Overview about SAP EHS Management solutions
If you check this link: SAP Environment, Health, and Safety Management (SAP EHS Management) – SAP Help Portal Page
SAP defines the solution as:
SAP Environment, Health, and Safety Management (SAP EHS Management)
having these subcomponents or solution options:
- Component Extension 6.0 for SAP EHS Management
- Mobile Apps for SAP EHS Management
- SAP Environmental Compliance 3.0
- SAP Product and REACH Compliance 2.0
- SAP EHS Management as Part of SAP ERP
- SAP EHS Regulatory Content
- SAP Product Stewardship Network
- SAP EHS Regulatory Documentation OnDemand
- SAP Energy and Environmental Intelligence 1.0, Powered by SAP HANA
Discussions in many threads etc. has shown that this structure is not well understood. On top the community does have problems in differentiating “license topic” (how to get the software) and SAP software set up (which software must be downloaded, installed etc.)
Most of the threads in this FORUM are related to these topics:
|SAP EHS Management as Part of SAP ERP||This is “EHS MANAGEMENT CORE”|
|Component Extension 6.0 for SAP EHS Management||This is a new solution bundle having some “solution” parts with an overlap with solution in EHS Management Core|
|SAP Environmental Compliance 3.0||A number of threads regarding this topic can be found as well but clearly on lower level in comparison to the other ones|
|SAP Product and REACH Compliance 2.0||Is as well discussed. This solution bundle does have now some solution overlap with “Component Extension” solution|
Many persons acting in this FORUM asking to get a “functional overview” regarding these solutions especially focusing on the differences between the solutions but as well on the overlaps existing to get a better picture which process is supported by these solutions. If you check “simply” the corresponding SAP Online help the high level difference is obvious. But for some other topics you need to drill down more in SAP Online help.
E.g. check: SAP EHS DISCUSSIONS !!!!: January 2009
For those who are interested: if you just google you will find lots of videos and other related stuff of any kind of quality etc. Some are good, some are “nice” etc. So check YouTube as well !
SAP EHS Management Core Overview
Check e.g. these links:
|Quite good overview about EHS “classic”||SAP Environment, Health &amp; Safety Environment, Health, and Safety Tasks Integrated in Existing Business Processes…|
|Nice overview about EHSM||http://de.scribd.com/doc/238626863/188135769-SAP-EHS#scribd|
SAP EHS Management Core
SAP EHS Management is implemented as a SAP Extension in SAP ERP solution from technical point of view and therefore you need to prepare SAP ERP system and activate the extension before you can use SAP EHS Management. And there is some “afterwork” to be done to start with EHS. On SAP marketplace there exists some OSS notes referring to this topic (e.g.: EH&amp;S installation: Composite SAP Note or more special: Composite SAP Note: Relevant notes for EHS dangerous goods ). After activation and if you use recent SAP release (actually SAP ERP 6.0, Enhancement Package 7) you can activate further EHS relevant business functions. Not in all cases SAP is delivering here “default” implementations regarding the extensions as part of the Business Functions. During some upgrade projects (which have been mentioned here) e.g. issues come up in e.g. Dangerous Goods integration. So you should read carefully anything which you find on SAP marketplace. In context of “Component Extension for SAP EHS Management” you will find lots of information in SAP marketplace (e.g. master guide to install the software; migration aspects etc.).
SAP EHS Management
There is no version number used in context of SAP EHS Management any more. It is part of SAP ERP. But there is some “conflict” with naming convention by SAP. Now SAP delivers as well a “Component Extension 6.0 for SAP EHS Management” (currently: roughly any year a new version is delivered by SAP) which does have actually a version number but is not the same as SAP EHS Management classic. As mentioned above: This solution is to my knowledge not part of SAP ERP but installed as an “add-on”. We can expect that may be SAP will change this in the future (as has been done with EHS classic).
Component Extension is sometimes abbreviated as “EHSM” sometimes SAP EHS Management is called “EHSM”.
From technical point of view: you can not compare the old SAP EHS Management classic solution with the Component Extension for SAP EHS Management solution.
On the top there is still a version number used in context of the “SAP Product and REACH Compliance” solution (actually version 2.0 is the recent/current one).
With S/HANA solution SAP Product and REACH Compliance Suite will not be supported anymore.
It seems to be that there will be a new book to come and in english ! “Incident Management with SAP EHS Management”. According to the link identified: you can now ! dowbload the book. Please check: ISBN 978-1-4932-1330-6
SAP Best Practices for Chemicals
The use of the SAP Best Practise approach as shown here: http://help.sap.com/bp-chem can help to speed up if there is the need to prepare a “general” set up regarding SAP EHS Management.
The topic of “Best Practise” is mentioned often together with links to the documents. So please check this FORUM. Keep this in mind: not for all of the SAP EHS solutions you will find a “Best Practise” and in most cases the Best Practise approach is only providing you an idea: how to do the job; in most cases the discussion of gaps etc. can take lot of time.
KEEP IN MIND: SAP is not delivering e.g. WWI templates for MSDS/SDS or other similar stuff (you get some examples). You have to do the job by your own (same for rule sets and a lot of similar stuff);
KEEP IN MIND: using SAP EHS software the system is nearly “empty” (ok: some basic customizing exists if you have done set up properly); therefore establishing phrases and other important business content must be done by YOU !!
PLEASE CHECK LINK: What is the main difference between product reach compliance and product safety stewardship
PLEASE SEARCH FOR (using e.g. google) E.G. using term “SAP Best Practices for Environment, Health and Safety Management”, with “Solution Scope Document”.

Please check e.g. What’s New in SAP ERP – SAP ERP – SAP Library

The “management story”
Recently a number of documents has been generated which are dedicated for “Management purposes”
Just check: Strategic Imperatives for the Chemical Industry – Part 9: IT Strategy, Alignment & Delivery
You will find reference to additional documents
Years ago there was a different term used in this context: “EH&S”. Generally you should now always use the term “SAP EHS Management” and you should not use the term EH&S any more. But you need take care regarding this “naming”. In most cases: if term EHSM is used then you can think about: classic EHS together with Component Extension. But sometimes people use the term EHSM for the “Component Extension” part of the software solution. If EHS is used most of the people talk about EHS classic (refer to comments/discussion in this document). Sometimes “problematic” is the discussion how “SAP Product and REACh Compliance Suite” is related to that. Here we have in most case two perspectives: topic and status of your SAP license and topic of software architecture etc. As SAP is still adapting/improving their license model no clear answer might be possible. Therefore: make it simple. Just ask SAP about your status and how to extend (if needed). From software point of view: “SAP Product and REACh Compliance Suite”: this is an own software layer (on the top) to SAP EHS Management classic. And there is a trend to move functionality from SAP Product and REACh Compliance Suite into the new “Component Extension” solution. Currently roughly any 12 – 18 month a new “Enhancement Package” is delivered by SAP to add new functionality to SAP ERP.
History of SAP EHS Management

Books regarding SAP EHS Management
Only one book is available and only in german to deal with SAP EHS Management. Refer to: http://scn.sap.com/thread/3337768
This book does not cover e.g. “Component Extension Solution” and GLM topics. There is no indication that the book will be translated in english nor that there will be an update of this book.
For EHS beginners I found these nice links (refer below). You should read them to get an idea about SAP EHS classic (even if the content seems to be based on release something like EH&S 2.5 the content is very useful to start with).
Change XX with these values and “BE HAPPY” to get such nice EH&S documentation !

Use of SAP EHS Management
SAP EHS Management is integrated very well in the relevant SAP ERP processes. Normally it is not used as a “standalone” application/module. It support companies to be compliant regarding chemical products. The main integration points are:
- SAP MM
- SAP DMS
- SAP SD
- SAP PP
- SAP QM
- SAP PM
SAP EHS Management classic uses as well the SAP class/characteristic system. By using this you can “easily” enhance EHS to maintain additional data which is not possible by using SAP standard. Keep in mind that SAP delivers update to SAP Standard property tree sometimes (please check SAP marketplace; you will find an important OSS note regarding this (Standard property tree)). If you are owning a SAP Regulatory Content license you will get these updates “nearly” automatic.
For those who would like to start with SAP EHS Management especially these modules are of importance and therefore you should invest some time to understand the use of them and the relation to SAP EHS Management:
- SAP MM (definition of the material master, assignment of material to specification; use of material classes)
- SAP SD (basic know how needed because of e.g. SDS/MSDS distribution and Dangerous Goods Management integration)
- SAP DMS (basic know how needed to understand how e.g. WWI reports are managed (stored) in SAP; it is recommended that you should have basic know how in the area of “ArchiveLink” and similar solutions
What the “hell” is a specification (and what about specification type and specification category)?
For those who start with EHS classic it is not easy to differentiate these terms. Think of a specification of a “number” (but need not to be number) for an object in EHS classic. SAP provides a number of SAP transactions in EHS. Therefore on the topic you might have some problems in understanding the difference.
The topic of specification category is explained here:
Specification Category – Basic Data and Tools (EHS-BD) – SAP Library
and that of the specification type here:
In EHS Classic mainly these transaction codes are used to prepare data:
|CGCL2||Dangerous Goods Workbench|
Hazardous/dangerous — what is the difference?
If you read cross chemical legislation/regulations you will find the term “Hazardous” and “Dangerous”. These two terms are sometimes mixed. On high level this is true:
If people talk about “hazardous substances/materials” they are interested in topics as:
- SDS/MSDS generation
- Hazardous Substance Management (e.g. what is allowed to be stored together)
- SOP generation
- Handling/Storage advices
If people talk about “dangerous substances/dangerous goods management/dangerous materials” they are interested in topics as
- how to transport the product safe
- in which region (e.g. regulations like IMDG, IATA, ADR, ADNR etc.) should the transport happen and what is the “mode of transport”
- what can be transported together
- In which kind of “package” is the transport allowed
Hazardous Substance Management
Currently there is a high frequency of threads to be detected in the area of “Hazardous Substance Management”. I am sorry to say that one could write books regarding this topic. I can only try to give some may be helpful hints.
- There is a kind of overlap in “understanding” and “use” of this term with SAP EHS IHS
- There is a functional overlap with Component Extension for SAP EHS Management
- and there still exists in SAP ERP an “old” solution; according to the analysis here: nobody seems to use this solution any more (there is nearly no thread): some rare examples: Hazardous material not maintained in Region, Hazardous material URGENT, Hazardous Materials Management – Warehouse Management System (WMS) – SAP Library
- There is an integration option available with SAP eWM (topic of what is allowed to be stored together in a “location”)
If you check carefully the optons delivered with “Component Extension” Solution the story is now getting “complexer” as we have now a kind of functional overlap.
Dangerous Goods Management
The “Dangerous Goods management” solution does have a long history. By using Enhancement Packages on top of ECC 6.0 there are now a lot of new options available. E.g. using recent SAP releases you can integrate SAP EHS DG as well with SAP TM.

Substance Volume Tracking
For those who might be interested: for any company doing business in Korea a “REACh” like regulation is now in place. Take a look here: Korean REACH passed on April 30th
It can be expected that in Asia more regulation will come in place which are REACh like. So there might be the need so set proper SVT scenario for the new countries. E.g. take a look here: Korean Reach compliance
In more and more countries the GHS principle is used. This does have impact on e.g. WWI layout, rulesets and other topics as well. Most of the regulations create “lists” (e.g. europe) in whicht the GHS classifícation/labeling is fixed for a specific chemistry. Therefore the topic of content handling is important as well.
Data management in EHS solutions
A lot of discussion can be listed in context of “mass update”, “upload options”. Because of the many SAP solutions; let us concentrate on EHS classic.
On very high level you might differentiate:
- Set up of a new SAP ERP system (and EHS classic) using data from a legacy system
- Doing mass updates in the EHS system of any kind (insert, update, delete)
- Options to extract data from SAP ERP system
Any of these topics are addressed in many threads in this FORUM (and some links to threads are provided as well). Therefore: please check this document and the many threads.
It is always a good practise to consider as well “documents” in your scope. Here more or less the option to “import” documents or “export” is of interest; but sometimes as well there is the need to generate by mass new documents in EHS classic based on new data. Here as well you will find lot of references in this document and in this FORUM.
In most cases the demand is such specific, that you will in most cases use a company specific approach.
This section is intended to provide short links to SAP documentation. It is not intended to be complete etc.
PLEASE CHECK SERVICES e.g. provided FROM SAP
SAP EHS Regulatory Documentation OnDemand – SAP Help Portal Page
On regular/irregular basis question come up in context of SAP license strategy, about how the software can be combined etc. Especially the activation of SAP EHS as part of SAP ERP is asked sometimes (e.g. EHS management prerequisites). Here some general links for beginners with SAP or SAP ERP.
The design / set up of a a useful SAP landscape is not an easy taks. E.g. as an example:
|SAP structure based to use Enhancement Packages||
SAP Enhancement Packages Technology Facts
|Topic of Enhancement Package|
|What is part of SAP ERP?||
SAP ERP Central Component 6.0: Inst./upgrad and architecture
Software Components in SAP ERP – ABAP Workbench Tools – SAP Library
|What is inside of SAP ERP?|
Data / Document archiving
This topic is discussed rarely. The story is quite simple. SAP delivers a standard strategy to “archive” documents but not the data. So if you use EHS for a long term (> 3 years) and based on your company size etc. the number of data records in the EHS core tables can increase “dramatically”. There is only one option to delete “old” data but you can not archive this data (based on what SAP delivers).
Other sources of information
Please check YouTube ! A lot of people uploaded here videos (e.g. maintenance and training examples) about EHS of any kind.

Recipe Development/Recipe Management
Very rarely discussion comes up about the solution “Recipe Development” or “Recipe Management”. This is normally discussed in SCN in Forum “PLM (Product Life Cycle Management; check may be:: Product Lifecycle Management (SAP PLM)).
Recipe Develoment does have “Business Function” extensions as well. E.g.

As you can see: the link is different and the solution approach is different. Both applications use SAP EHS core elements as well.
Component Extension for SAP EHS Management
Component Extension for SAP EHS Management is a “new” solution (now available as version 6.0). It is an “Add On” (own software layer). This new solution can not be compared with SAP EHS Management “classic” and is implemented different. The actual scope of the application does have some overlap with SAP EHS Management “classic”. To a certain extent part of SAP EHS Management “classic” can be used if you start with the Component Extension (you can “migrate” existing data). Discussion in several threads in this FORUM showed that SAP will “reorganize” their applications. Therefore some old functions will not be developped any more but money / time etc. will be invested in the Component Extension. Please check carefully this FORUM. A number of useful hints are provided regarding installation of the new solution, migration topics etc.
E.g. check: SAP EHS DISCUSSIONS !!!!: SAP EHS and SAP EHSM &#8211; Where to start learning
GLM/Global Label Management
Discussion in this FORUM showed that SAP is restructuring and enhancing the GLM solution as well. Last update has been done with Enhancement Package 7. Some old TechniData solutions seems to be still supported by SAP using the SAP Consulting service. Especially the new options regrading GLM in Enhancement Package 7 are worth to be studied if you need to implement GLM. Especially the topic “how to install WWI correct” is a “problem” in this context. Because of recent dicussions in this FORUM some links to “Bar Code” discussion taking place in this FORUM has been added. GLM is as well one of those topics discussed very often in this FORUM.
On an irregular level discussion is coming up if it is possible to “convert” a WWI related MSDS/SDS into XML for data exchange. To make it short: there are options to do so but there is lack of availability of XML schemata. Here I have the feeling that people believe XML is something like “TXT”, “DOC”, “PDF” etc. To a certain extent this is correct but in context of MSDS/SDS and data exchange this is wrong. The main “issue” here is: data exchange can be only done if sender and receiver talk the same language. Examples of data interchange options via XML is the “IUCLID” format. Here you need to prepare a XML data stream according to the rules of ECHA. And this is the “crucial” issue in exchange of data using XML. The XML file content must “fit” a XML schema. (there is a “rule” to do so). But there is a trend on chemistry / legislation etc. to use XML as the “data format (but per “legislation” there is a different rule in place) and clearly if you look close on SAP functionality you can generate XML (there are a number of options to do so). But e.g. if you would like to exchange an US related MSDS or an European MSDS via XML you have a different internal structure etc. Here we have now to a certain extent the link to WWI. WWI is used to “collect” together the data for US MSDS and EU MSDS. Using XML in theory you can do the same but because of lack of “common” rules (as with the IUCLID format) you can not use XML generally to exchange MSDS/SDS data. In most cases you need to think about “mapping” of XML Data stream to your EHS structure (may be you use different phrases, identifiers etc. etc.).
WWI / Adobe Forms
In some SAP EHS Management related software Adobe Forms are used (Example SAP Product and REACh Compliance Suite). For SDS/MSDS/Label etc. reports WWI is and will be the standard tool. It can be assumed that Adobe Forms will be integrated “better” in the future and that it will be used more often but if a complex layout has to be designed WWI is the only available tool to do so especially in the area of Label Management.
Portal solutions/MSDS download and related stuff
On regular basis discussion is coming up regarding:
- MSDS import
- MSDS export
- MSDS display in portal
PLEASE CHECK THIS FORUM first or check this document. The topic has been discussed really often.
Dear EHS Community: please go on in preparing documents and blogs !
Any idea to improve this section is appreciated. Please provide ideas regarding topic or subtopic so that may be beginner can find more easily the answer.
Please help to improve so that Beginners in SAP EHS Management are supported. What do you Beginner inSAP EHS Management need as a “starter package”?
Frequently Asked Questions
This section is intended to help beginners to find easily a thread in this FORUM which might help regarding the issue. This section will grow step by step. Ideas of topics which should be collected can be added based on feedback of community.
The “WWI” section part of this FAQ will be updated only rarely. The same is true for “GLM” part. There are too many threads regarding this tool/technique. It is nearly not possible to do a “sorting” or to select properly may be helpful threads. Please refer to some of the documents as mentioned here. They try to help more.
The same is true regarding Report distribution, Component Extension for SAP EHS Management as well as Dangerous Goods Management topics etc. It is not easy to sort questions asked so that it might help a SAP EHS beginner.
This is my personal list of those topics which are asked for very often:
- WWI (layout topics, server installation) (it is nearly impossible to take care about that many threads regarding this tool/this solution in this FORUM; therefore: please search first ! and then ask your question)
- How to use WWI to define e.g. MSDS/SDS layout (what are the basic steps)
- MSDS generation (e.g. what are the steps required etc.) (e.g. SAP EHS DISCUSSIONS !!!!: WWI Template Creation and (M)SDS Authoring)
- Report distribution (e.g. general set up; distribution of inbound documents)
- Report import/export (Most frequently asked are: Import: Inbound documents; Export: Mass download topics)
- Label/GLM topics of many kind (A lot of topics regarding GLM (e.g. label scenario); GLM Bar Code printing (how to use BAR codes etc.) ; synchronous WWI server
- Dangerous Goods (filling, checks and to a certain extent maintenance topics)
- CG02 extensions (e.g. use of output variants)
- Where used list (compositions, specification listings)
- CG50/CG54 (e.g. download by mass of documents, portal solutions)
- Regulatory content; how to use etc.
- How to start with EHS? What are the customizing steps etc.
- Use of “Component Extension” (how to install, migrate etc.)
- What are the “career” options in EHS? What are the prerequisites to start with EHS?
- SVT Topics
It is recommended to use the “search” functionality in SDN to check if your problem has been discussed yet. It is not intended to have a “100 % “FAQ section here and not 100 % quality (that means a thread can appear e.g. twice etc. in one section).
you have given the reference link http://www.sap.com/corporate-en/sustainability/index.epx to actually know "what is sustainability practices / measures a company have / adheres ? " right..? I think it would be a better starting point to understand how EHS practices (not sap-ehs) has evolved in the years and integrated with sustainability related practices in the industry and compare the same with that of SAP's solution for EHS & Sustainability..
Can you go and with some more detail into "Naming conflict"/"History" ?
guess this would give better clarity on sap's various solution for EHS over the years..!
I gave some additional information below, but just to clarify about the "naming conflict" and history:
Prior to 2009, the license was called Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S for short) and now it is called SAP Environment,Health+Safety Management (EHSM for short). There is functionality in the new license that did not exist at the time of the older license. Therefore, if a customer owns the older license, they likely do not have rights to all of the functionality in the new license and may need to upgrade their license. If this is the case, the good news is that they will get a credit for the older purchase, so they do not lose that investment. For details, the account team will need to be involved.
Note that there are other products in the EHS space - such as SAP EHS Management product and REACH compliance. There are also other old licenses that have been retired.
So, it can get quite confusing for customers who have been around a long time. If you are new to this space, then all you need to know is that when people say EH&S, they are probably referring to the older functionality and when they say EHSM, they could be referring to everything or they may mean the new functionality in the component extension. I wish it were not so confusing, but there is a long history here and changes happen over time.
regarding your comment: "ou have given the reference link http://www.sap.com/corporate-en/sustainability/index.epx to actually know "what is sustainability practices / measures a company have / adheres ? " right..? I think it would be a better starting point to understand how EHS practices (not sap-ehs) has evolved in the years and integrated with sustainability related practices in the industry and compare the same with that of SAP's solution for EHS & Sustainability.. "
I never really gave you an answer. Sorry. The main issue here is that you can write "books" to summerize what you are looking for. On the top the "problem" is with the term "sustainability". Here you need to write two books.
One quite short summery might be:
a.) chemical and similar industry need to follow a lot of regulations to produce, export or import products
b.) these product must be "legally" ok from e.g. customs point of view and e.g. foreign trade point of view
c.) you must be able to transport the products safely using proper packaging
d.) you must be ableto store the products safely according to different regulations
e.) on the topregulaitons like "VOC"; "Excise Duty" and other stuff need to be considered
f.) sometimes you need to register teh rpdouct before you can import et.c that
On the top you need to take care of the safetyof the worker, check your emmissions, calculate e.g.Carbonimpact, check a lot of other stuff etc.; then based on the specific industry (as automitive) you need to take care regarding additional stuff; onyl as on top
example: e.g. waste handling (and recycling etc.) is additional demand
This can be onyl a "short" list of topics in context of Sustainability. And as the environment changes from time to time (e.g. REACh, GHS, and other upcoming regulations) it is really not posible to look "shortly" into the past and try to extrapolate to the future
I hope that this might help. Not sure. But if you check e.g. What is the main difference between product reach compliance and product safety stewardship
a number of on top questions might comeup as well
This indeed is a valuable information for beginners to start with and there is not much documentation on the website. This provides a clear approach to SAP EHSM. Not many have knowledge on this product even the SAP customers. Expecting more blogs from you on SAP EHSM subjects.
This is a great idea to help beginners! Thanks for starting this. I would like to clarify just a few points. The component extension for EHS Management is an add-on to ERP. You will find the help for the component extension for EHS Management in a different place - http://help.sap.com/ehs-comp. In addition, when you look on service marketplace for the on-line training, you will find it in the index under C for component extension for EHS Management rather than under EHS. From a licensing perspective, customers who buy a license today will buy EHS Management and it includes both the functionality that is "in ERP" as well as the functionality that is in the "add on".
Really wonderful work by cataloging the threads with respect to frequently used search query/frequently asked topics..
kudos for the gr8 initiative...
please find the below link describing in detail about the Occupational Health module.
good catalogue, thanks!
Christoph, you are truly a star! This is really awesome. Thank you so much!
Just to throw in my two cents worth. With regards to installing Windows services for the EHS Expert Server and WWI Server: one needs a pretty good knowledge about Windows administration as well (service administration, windows policies, event log etc.). So, you probably need an admin guy that takes you by the hand and guides you through the whole installation procedure.
if you check the many threads related WWI installation: you are right. Here you need somebody who knows SAP EHS and Windows administration. Related EHS Expert: there are nearly no thread which I know related the installation of the solution; but how to use it
I am New to EHS Module Can u help me out as our project works related to portal and fbi ( floor plan manager, bopf integration. how to enhance these standard flor plan applications.
thanks and regards,
This is Awesome...
I usually follow your postings..
This is very good one for SAP EHS Management startup functional consultants.
Thanks & Regards,
Really your information is awesome..
That is really great work! Many thanks for that.
Very good blog- thanks!
Awesome Collection of reference links for EHS -thanks.
Any inputs for QIM ( quality incident management) would be greatly appreciated as well)
I am sorry. I am not an expert of SAP QM neither SAP QIM (http://help.sap.com/saphelp_qim100/helpdata/en/26/d50f49b6a54a37839e4326987edeb1/frameset.htm)
and to my knowledge we have only one integration optin of SAP EHS and SAP QM (may be check this FORUM: this topics is discussed not very often; Some integration options of SAP EHS Management are collected shortly here:
Very useful links. Will provide scenario in my other thread - thanks sir!
Thank you Christopher, so nice document for beginner's of EHS.
SAP QIM is quite new and is a very interresting alternative to the traditionel SAP QM Notifications. Since it's new, there is very few companies who have started to use the tool.
As far as I know QMS is one of the few companies, who have implemented QIM at a customer site (Tenneco).
Take a look at this video:
For the integration in SAP EHS to SAP QM see:
The thread to see together in one place very nice. Many thanks for your information.
could you possible give more information for functional enhancements for SAP EH&S Occupational Health, ind. hygiene & safety,Dangerous goods.product safety,waste management.
Once again, Many thanks for your information.
please specify more what you are looking for. Check e.g. may be: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-44643
Functional enhancements can be there as part of e.g:
- a customer exit
- a menue exit
- using some BADI implementation
- using ECC 6.0 technlogy (enhancement points)
etc. But what is the definition of "functional enhancement"? Let's make an example:
You can e.g. create a own property tree, VAT (class/characetirstic,. own identifiers etc. etc. => is this a "functional enhancement" from your point of view? I assume: no. But what are you looking for?
Thanks for you quick reply.
You are correct.
As per customer requirement i can create own property tree using VAT (class/characteristic) in Specification management,this is also one kind of functional enhancements for SAP EH&S.
Coming to point, Functional consultant should be now the functional Enhancements for SAP EH&S. It described various customer requests or requirement.(Note 440856)
Example i can say here.
Risk rating analysis method:
New analysis method for ratings possible now, as per customer requirement i can provide new risk rating analysis method.
Information on accident event per e-mail:
Mail will trigger to the person responsible for processing the accident the possibility to inform other persons or distributors on the accident, the option to send a (e-mail) message directly from incident/accident log was once made.
My point of view i have received some information for industrial hygiene and safety and Occupational Health in market place.Dangerous goods.product safety,waste management i don't have that much idea for functional enhancement. If you have any idea for this 3 please provide more information. as a functional consultant, this is more helpful for us.
I studied the OSS note you have mentioned. I understand now better what you are looking for. I am sorry tosay that it is nearly impossble to help you. The issues are like this:
- SPs are not documented "well". You need to consider any OSS note as part of a SP to understand the difference
- OSS notes like you have mentioned can be identified in most cases if you look for "Recommendation/additional info" as a search topic in market place
- the delta documentation is not very "good": e.g. if you have the need to switch from SAP enterprise 4.7 to either ECC 5.0 or ECC 6.0 you will get more information in SAP marketplace in comparison to content of SPs
- in any case it is worth to simply check any SPRO activity and try to understand the use of it
- be area of the fact ! that sometimes you need really carefully read OSS notes related to SPs; one exmaple is: with I belive EH&S 2.5 or EH&S 2.7 the "usage" was available on identifier level (wiht sometimes "strange" effects). Personally I realized that years ago in a SP change that it might be important to really read any OSS (we manged the change); therefore it is recommened to check SPRO changes and to retest all (even if IS organisation don't like this "message" (as it means time, money ressources). Depending on the "difference" (e.g. 2 SPs, three SPs etc.) you should invest more time in testing; pay especially attention to the fact that sometimes (n OSS noets referring to OSS notes) some "relocation" reports are mentioneded which "must" be executed befoire you should go on with update / upgrade; to find especialy these notes is not easy
- rarely SAP is preparing a "consulting OSS note" to consider "important" topics. Examples are: WWI installation, SDS distribution or SVT installation. Something like that is not available to my knowledge for DG, Waste or IH nor OH installation. Therefore to check the "Best practise" approach is the best option as here you will find examples regarding these "submodules"
To give you some hints. depending on SP something like 20 to 30 OSS notes are collected together. Now depending on the IS strategy of your company either you install them at the time they are released or you wait e.g. two or more years. As per year normally at least 2 SPs are delivered it is clear that if you wait with SP installation the number of OSS notes are increased.
And as we have now the "Enhancement Package" option you get a "conflict" as roughly once a year a new enhancement package is available (and sometimes you ned a SAP basic update to use a Enhancement Package; therefore you have a number of dependencies). Now once again you have the option;: only install the SPs or install the enhancement package and the by activating some business function to get some profit from this investment. In the last case you need more time to analyze the effects and you need to prepare blueprints etc.
DG, PS and Waster are "classic" modules. So enhancements are done here only by using Enhancement packages and only in rare cases (as with Reach) by using a SP.
So I am sorry. I can not really help you. Any approach depends on the "blueprint" you are looking for and therefore methodology etc. used can be different
I am really appreciate your information. Many thanks for your command.
Very good information. I would say this is not only useful to the beginners but also to those who are working on SAP EH&S as you have captured all required information nicely and in a good manner.
Thanks and Regards,
really a good starting point for all EHS stuffs.
Thanks for sharing this.
Thanks for the effort, I'll try to collaborated with my limited knowledge in waste management.
may be you could prepare a document regarding EHS Waste and SAP Waste and Recycling application. Rarely asked here but may be of interest.
Amazing blog Christoph.. I had bookmarked this blog.... 🙂 🙂 . Will share it to my team.
Hats off to your patience 😯 ..... Keep it up.....
Great work Christoph! I have bookmarked this page and I am sure I will be referencing your page for months to come 🙂
i am newly enter into the SAP world
now i am working on Waste management. could you please help me to understand the waste workbench T.code is waco02?
please start new thread. Please chech "Best Practise" documents. Please explain your issues better, It is quite general
i am confused regarding the creation of waste workbech. waste workbench? could you please explain it to me. our main concern is material generating and disposing so that can we do it without creation the waste workbench? or we have to do it? What is the relation of waste workbench with the generation and disposal?
where can i get the best practice of waste workbech is it available online? if it is available so send me the web link to buy it............
you have not read this document carefully. Best Practise is mentioned here. In any case:
Shortly: The Waste Solution of EHS does help companies in disposing etc. of waste according to legal requirements. The Waste Workbench is only one "subpart" of the whole story. Please read SAP online help to get an overview about the solution and its use.
PAY ATTENTION: as mentioned above a different SAP solutions is existing handling "waste". Don#T mix these two SAP solutions
any body can help me to buy these manual sus315 sus320 sus425 sus415 sus420 sus455 sus450 sus360 sus370 sus380 sus350 sus 365 sus375 sus385 sus350.. please please please and please.....
SUS315 et.c are SAP trainings; it is very easy to buy them (just check SAP onloine). E.g.
SUS315 - SAP EHS Management - Essentials and Functions professional (EEF prof) | SAP Training and Certification Shop
This is not a manual !! (may be you will get some manual; but because of legal reasons I assume nobody would share the documents with you).
Thanks for a great Work Cristoph!
Very informative blog, thanks!
I'm a newer to learn SAP as an EHS engineer, do you have any suggetion for how to connect SAP and EHSM ,for i don't have any SAP experience,thanks. 😳
your question is to general. I am not 100% sure what you would like to get. We need to differentiate a number of "career" options.
1.) You are (or would like) to act as end user/key user
2.) You would like to work on EHS/EHSM projects to support customers (finding / discussing solutions)
3.) you would like to act e.g. a "project manager" on such projects
In any case: without basic knowledge on SAP you can not start. Once again you need to ask yourself: do you would like to start as "end user" or drill down to "technique" (ABAP etc.) and start from this point of view your career.
Therefore: sorry I can not really help. Especially as EHS/EHSM is now a "to general" term. PLease check this Document well. You will detect that you need/should first "specialize" and then you can "generalize" (in most cases). So what is your background? Any< experience with other IT tools similar to SAP etc.? A EHS career is in >90% of cases a "step by step" one; learn the basics and then grow
PS: check e.g. this "similar" thread: Sap EHS/EHSM market
You will findmore of that kind
PPS: check: Career Center
and: FAQ: Middle and Late SAP Career Paths or similar threads
You might want to add the following link to a Configuration Guide, which I found very useful:
I noticed that actually you do have a link to a Building Block & Configuration Guide: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-43799 Unfortunately,I get an "unauthorized" message and cannot view this document. If this should already contain a link to above document, mea culpa! 😳
you are right. http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-43799 => there is an access issue; i am sorry. I can not remember at whcih point of time I added this link (and conten of link); therefore: in next future I will delete link.
For community: we have two major places to check:

Hi C B ,
It is extremely impressive.You gave us bunch of fruits, now I have to make a strategy to do justice to what you have given.
great job putting all things together .
Thanks for the informative blog.
I am new to SAP and got stuck with the launch pad.
can anyone help me to configure SAP EHS Fiori launchpad in S/4 HANA?
your topic seems not to be related SAP EHS but how "S/4 HANA" set up is done. Please move your question to a different location.
Awesome Christopher good explanation on SAP EHS..Thanks a lot..
This content in the blog is informative. Thank you for such good information. Keep posting more like this.
SAP B1 Interview Questions
Thanks CB. Excellent deep insight in SAP EHS
the Blog contains now informations which are not correct any more.
Many of the links are not working any more.
The Blog as such will not get an update in the next time.
Therefore: please use informations e.g. from "help pages" of EHS as well as SAP Marketplace etc. to check what you need to consider now if you start with EHS Classic
With best Regards
Just to add, as this thread somehow popped up into my email.
We do have replacement functionality for Waste, OH, and IH in the S/4HANA platform and most of this is now available in private cloud or public cloud as well
SAP EHS is now a separate solution area from Product Compliance. For SAP employees, please check Digital Library or WorkZone for the latest solution collateral. For external personnel, please check the sap.com product pages.
regarding your feedback:
"We do have replacement functionality for Waste, OH, and IH in the S/4HANA platform"
1.) Yes we have an alternative for "OH"
2.) Yes we have an alternative for "IH"
3.) The Waste part is (according to my knowledge) not final. There is a Roadmap announced by SAP and yes: because of the "Cloud" variant: the delivery of the solution is quite fast. For "On Premise" customers: accordong to my knowlegde: it will take more time
4.) and yes "EHS" is no seperated ((from what is called "Product Compliance")
Can you may be share the current official status of the "Waste" part here? Or at least can you share the "best" link to the "SAP Roadmap Explorer" to check the tatus of the new "Waste" Solution?
