Collaboration, Benchmarking and Injury reduction

Problem 1

Lack of standardization

Problem 2

Manual processing of data

Problem 3

Difficult to expand analysis and improve

In 2016, a large association of multinational manufacturers approached EHS with data analysis issues. They had an existing benchmarking program which was very progressive but challenging to operate. Multiple parties (up to 14) were required to compile and submit detailed metrics quarterly by hand. This manual compilation proved to be onerous due to accuracy issues and commitment issues. Further, it was a barrier to the in-depth analysis they were seeking.

EHS proposed the use of our enterprise integration function to automatically channel safety records and data directly into the EHS Platform and using EHS’s automated machine learning taxonomy mapping to achieve a reliable, standardized and real-time reporting dashboard. This is made secure via the EHS ShareSet, whereby individual organizations can participate in a carefully governed, yet in-depth benchmarking structure for analysis.

The result has been a successful focus on analysis, looking at both leading and lagging information. This continuous improvement approach, working with real-time data and reporting, has allowed the group to achieve a staggering 12.5% per-annum reduction in their collective incident rate.

EHS has shown, through this multi-year project, the continuous success possible from working in an integrated, collaborative setting using the EHS Platform as well as the trust in the platform by multi-billion-dollar firms.
