SAP Health and Safety Manage­ment

SAP EHS Occupational health and safety is about the measures and means to protect employees from work-related health and safety hazards. The aim of occupational safety is to limit exposure of employees to only justifiable health hazards or ideally none of its risks at all.

SAP offers a comprehensive solution for SAP EHSM occupational health and safety with its module SAP EHSM Health and Safety Management.

SI PRO supports during implementation of SAP EHS risk assessment with the identification, analysis, assessment and management of hazards. This is also includes workflows with tasks and measures, and a solution for the system-based creation and management of operating instructions.

An essential strength of the SAP solution EHSM is to use already existing SAP organisational structures such as company code, plant, plant maintenance data, HR data, etc., but most of all to use integrated SAP EHS hazardous substance data. Therefore occupational health and safety has access to the latest data, complex interfaces are redundant as well as double data maintenance for a non-integrated occupational health and safety solution.

Moreover SAP EHSM offers further integrated solutions for an enclosing occupational health and safety solution.

SAP EHSM Incident Management allows to record accidents and process these according to the requirements of the e.g. Employer’s Liability Insurance Association. Furthermore, the SAP EHSM Solution allows to record near-misses as well as safety relevant observations easily and follow those up systematically.

SAP EHS Environmental Management permits to record data on environmentally relevant regulations manually and automatically. This solution also monitors legal compliance and calculates environmental indicators (KPIs).

Legal Cadastre can be maintained to create legal certainty of relevant regulations and laws for the organisation.

SAP EHS Hazardous Substances can be maintained, assessed and released by SAP EHSM. Further an integration to SAP EHS Hazardous Substance Management is available.

SAP document management can store all documents in its respective context, for example SAP EHS Safety Data Sheets (SDS) of a supplier for a chemical with integration to SAP material as well as SAP orders.

Functions for SAP EHS Audits are available. SAP EHSM data, questionnaires, processes, tasks and further SAP data can always be evaluated up to date. Certificates for management systems according to ISO 14001, ISO 5001 and ISO 45001 are supported. A powerful authorisation control is also available.

SAP EHSM offers modern user-friendly web-based user interfaces and SAP Fiori-Apps. SI PRO supports an integration of SAP EHS content data where applicable (such as SAP EHS hazardous substance data, legal cadastre, samples of risk assessment, samples of operating instructions, protective measures).

SI PRO has solutions for instruction management with SAP EHSM, an electronic data exchange of safety data sheets.

SI PRO consulting services in SAP Health and Safety Manage­ment

SI PRO facilitates your planning, implementation and support of your SAP EHSM Health and Safety Management solution.

Experience has shown that project preparation for SAP Health and Safety Management projects is of particular importance. A large number of stakeholders such as occupational safety specialists, responsible engineers, management, IT and ,last but not least, labour representatives need to get involved.

SI PRO can demonstrate in its SAP demo and development system how your requirements can be realised as part of feasibility studies, project preperation or proof on concept. Typically, activity plans with scoping and cost estimation will be developed for any implementation project.

The blueprint phase of SAP Health and Safety projects are all about a suitable definition of a location structure. This means the mapping of physical and organisational structures of the company with its according requirements of occupational safety, environmental management etc. will be looked at. Further topics of the project phase analysis and blue print include the identification of hazards, conception of risk assessment, mapping of hazardous substance management, approval process, conception of operating instructions, integration ERP / S4HANA processes and reporting.

SI PRO typically brings in best practices.

Technical implementation takes place as part of the implementation, i.e. customizing of SAP Standard Software.

Design and implementation of additional developments as well as Add Ons can be carried out if required. For example, adapted or customer-specific documents (with Adobe Technology), customer-specific user interfaces with Webdynpro or Fiori.

Integration tests /User Acceptance Test, training, possibly data migration and Go Live of SAP Health and Safety Management will take place after implementation has been conducted.

Once the solution has gone live, SI PRO continues to support its customers with additional services (such as rollout) and application and technical support. We also offer service level agreements with response times depending on the priority and business impact of the issue.
