As companies continue expanding their global presence and at the same time reduce their Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) staffs, it is critical to have a strategy in place that manages risk on a global basis with limited EHS resources. This is especially important for organizations with remote locations that may not have an EHS presence or for those that outsource their staffs to customer locations where there are different EHS expectations and requirements. Key topics highlighted in this paper include: - Global Activities and Associated Risks - Best Practices or 14000 and 18000 Certifications: Pros and Cons - Critical Infrastructure Components of a Global EHS System - Assessing the Goals and Performance of Your Global EHS System - Managing Your Global EHS System With Regards to the Future This paper also provides an overview of various EHS regulations in the global environment and discusses how to implement, measure, and manage a global EHS system with limited resources.
