As you all know SAP has released the SAP EHSM for HANA 1610 with a simplification. Though there is a wealth of information available on HANA with different business functionalities, installation procedures, Language availability and implementation options. I happen to check on the topic and would like to brief here the overview of the functionality relevant to EHSM.

The Product Safety Stewardship covers the features of Product Safety consisting of Report shipping, Dangerous Goods Management, Product Compliance, Substance Volume Tracking and Global Label Management. It also consists of skeleton features of Hazardous Substance Management. Whereas the Health and Safety consists of i) Incident Management and Risk Assessment.
