Are There Gaps in Our EHS Management System?
The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on workplaces, as levels of operation change or even cease due to lockdown measures, and employees find themselves more geographically spread out than ever.
Unfortunately, these challenges may also reveal gaps in our EHS management system that we didn’t know about before. We find weaknesses when it comes to accessing safety data sheets (SDSs), job safety analyses (JSAs), or training records, and might find it's difficult to keep everyone in our EHS management system connected. The danger is that under the stress of a crisis like the current pandemic, small gaps can become chasms, and our safety performance can suffer.
