Building Accountability and Responsibility With an EHS Policy

Your company’s Environmental, Health, and Safety or EHS Program is an important way to tell workers, the community, regulators, and customers about your commitment to the environment, as well as workplace and community health & safety.  An effective EHS program meets the following goals:


  • Adequate risk management of EHS hazards.

  • Compliance with state, federal, and local EHS laws.

  • Effective training and support to ensure that employees and contractors work in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.

  • Environmental sustainability and workplace safety through continuous improvement.

  • Communication of EHS commitments and achievements to internal and external stakeholders.
