Occupational Health & Safety with SAP EHS, WCM and MoC
To assure occupational health & safety, a healthy workforce and operational safety, SAP provides a series of solutions tailored to the safety practitioners’, the occupational health practitioners’ and safety engineers’ needs and methodology.
In the core of it all is the SAP EHS Risk Assessment solution for workplace and job related risk assessment, supporting risk detection (exposure profile), risk assessment, and risk mitigation (corrective actions). An outcome or this SAP EHS Risk Assessment is also the medical protocol planning for SAP EHS Occupational Health, based on the exposure profiles and the activities of the employees. Within SAP EHS Occupational Health, all medical services are provided and documented; a functional area that has new importance due to COVID pandemic and the consequent vaccination campaigns.
A special topic within occupational health & safety is the management of handling hazardous substances and chemicals, from purchasing over warehousing to usage, i.e. to assure
- safe handling and storage,
- availability of all safety related information at any point of time or location of storage or use,
- availability of hazardous substance inventories,
- availability of substance related information for health risk assessment.
All this is covered within the SAP EHS Chemical Management solution, with all relevant integration into SAP EHS Risk Assessment and SAP EHS Occupational Health. For example does the SAP EHS Chemical Management solution provide the relevant data about chemicals for the substance related health risk assessment within SAP EHS Risk Assessment, from with on the other end are derived the medical protocols within SAP EHS Occupational Health.
A further important solution in the context of proactive safety management and safety culture is the SAP EHS Incident Management, as central solution for incidents, accidents, near miss, hazard observations, unsafe behaviors.
To the wider are of occupational health and safety, i.e. operational safety, we have to add the SAP solutions SAP Work Clearance Management – to assure safe maintenance processes, work permit processes, Lockout/Tagout procedure – and SAP Management of Change – to assure safe change processes, e.g. for major asset or process changes.
Below, one can find for each of these solutions a brief introductory video, giving insights into the scope of the solutions and also a glimpse on the solution itself in from of a mini demo conveying a bit the look and feel of the solution.
