Join fellow SAP customers and partners in Houston for the SAP Conference for Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) Management to learn the latest news, innovations, and best practices for leveraging EHS to improve business performance in the asset-intensive industries, including oil & gas; chemicals; and engineering, construction and operations (EC&O).
Effective management of EHS risks that can adversely impact people, assets, and the environment is essential for sound corporate performance. Simply meeting regulations is no longer sufficient. Instead, a proactive approach to reducing risks is needed to achieve safe, sustainable operations. Furthermore, product safety and chemical management regulations, as well as industry-driven standards, are growing exponentially, requiring compliance activities and controls throughout the product lifecycle in an integrated and comprehensive way. Companies must find a way to use the wealth of EHS and operational data to which they have access to work smarter, faster, and simpler in the new manufacturing environment.
The challenge is how to optimize EHS processes to add value to the business. In the past, the EHS business function has been somewhat isolated from core business operations, resulting in excessive risk, cost, and inefficiencies. Today, industry leaders are moving from plant-based compliance to an enterprise-wide risk-based approach that systematically embeds EHS into day-to-day operations. If done right, such integration enables EHS to be transformed from a compliance burden to vital contributor to key business initiatives such as sustainable innovation and operational excellence that enable an enterprise to grow with confidence.
