Building Accountability and Responsibility With an EHS Policy
Do you have a good sense of where your company stands with its EHS policy? An EHS policy stands for the policy your company has when it comes to managing environmental health and safety. It is the guiding light that your company puts out to lead the way when it comes to setting controls, reducing the risks hazards present, etc. A quality EHS support system is a management tool that can help you to achieve objectives across the board.
When you put an EHS or environmental health and safety policy into place, it boils down to accountability and responsibility. The two things go hand in hand. When it comes to accountability, it all boils down to making sure that folks know what they are responsible for. Everyone has a role to play when it comes to the safety of the workplace. Responsibility is important as well. When the time comes to execute control to mitigate risk, someone needs to be responsible for that task.
