Needham, Mass.— August 4, 2014 — A new white paper — detailing how Environmental, Health and Safety managers can use Microsoft® SharePoint® to easily automate and streamline the processing and reporting of EHS forms throughout a company — is available to download at http://www.eheinc.com/auto_report_forms.htm.
Environmental, health and safety programs require the ongoing processing of routine paperwork to properly document and report events and initiatives such as accidents or incidents, risk assessments, or other forms requiring approvals. The process commonly involves collecting data in a standard format and then managing it through a variety of internal reviews, approvals and reports.
“This essentially manual process places a significant strain on already stretched EHS resources,” explains Robert Foster, Director, Automation Services, EH&E. “By employing Microsoft SharePoint — already available in many companies and institutions — EHS managers can automate the process to cut both processing time and costs.”
Titled “Automate the Processing and Reporting of EHS Forms,” the new white paper discusses how, using SharePoint’s built-in web-based capabilities, the software can easily be configured to:
- Allow employees to complete the forms in an electronic format from their desks or mobile devices.
- Automate and track the workflow process involved in completing and approving the forms.
- Automate the reporting process to generate and display key metrics in a master dashboard.
“The resulting automated system frees considerable EHS program hours and resources by eliminating the costly, time-consuming, and grossly inefficient burdens of transcribing, entering, processing, and reporting the data throughout an organization”, Foster said.
