Environmental health and safety managers can use Microsoft SharePoint to cut administration time and costs by automating routine EHS program tasks, according to a whitepaper from EH&E, a provider of environmental and engineering consulting services.
The paper shows how, with SharePoint, EHS managers are automating the inefficient burdens of manually transcribing, entering, processing and reporting the data throughout an organization.
Titled Microsoft SharePoint: A Powerful Solution for Environmental Health and Safety, the whitepaper demonstrates how EHS managers can use SharePoint — already available in many companies — to share and track compliance schedules and documentation; automate processes; collect data; and manage reviews, approvals, and reports that provide a complete picture of EHS program compliance.
Tightly integrated with Office, SharePoint easily absorbs Word and Excel files, and synchronizes calendars with Outlook — streamlining both use and communication, EH&E says.
Written specifically for EHS managers, the paper includes overviews on the overall power of SharePoint, harnessing SharePoint for EHS management; utilizing mobile devices for data capture and integration; and additional benefits for EHS applications.
