The innovative power of information technology (IT) will turn the EHS industry on its ear!
It’s still somewhat early days for the integration of IT and EHS workflow process, and the road being travelled by many organizations is to simply take the first step of moving beyond traditional methods of paper-based recording and tracking, and replacing these with electronic processes. But the way forward for businesses is a path to huge transformation.
As the saying goes – “you ain’t seen nothing yet!” So much more is looming.
Technology and innovation in EHS will be the topic of what should be a lively discussion during a forward-looking session at this week’s NAEM EHS Sustainability and Management Forum in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. on the topic of – Drones, Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things: Leveraging Technology to Advance EHS.

The puzzle pieces of raw data come together to become a transformative picture for business when advanced analytics are applied.
History shows advanced analytical capabilities used in business are a foundation for improved decision-making and performance. Data gathered through various activities and processes becomes insight and intelligence when analysis workflows and methodologies are applied. And the more analysis scrubbing of data, the greater the potential for yielding knowledge and actionable awareness to accelerate improvement.
An exceptional analyst or analytics team can be a starting point for analytics. Going above and beyond in getting the most intelligence out of data collected requires something much deeper, through the scale of many people and analytical processes. An organization should be considering how to foster a data-centered culture of share and share alike in order to extract as much intelligence as it can from data gathered.
That happens in two ways:
a) Through embedded … Read more...

The company announcement has been made, the press release published, and the personal notice made to his social network; now, Vinay Nair shares why he came to Intelex, a leading provider of Environmental, Health & Safety and Quality Management (EHSQ) software, and how the mission of the company and its customers aligns with his own personal beliefs.
Vinay, tell us about your introduction to Intelex and the EHSQ industry.
When I was first approached about the Senior Vice President position at Intelex, I was surprised to say I was unaware of the company and knew very little about the EHSQ market. Having been an analyst that had covered the Canadian Enterprise Applications market, I prided myself on knowing the key players in the country. All this time, Intelex had grown into a formidable SaaS company right in the heart of Toronto and I missed it. But once I was introduced … Read more...

Serious Injury Prevention – S is for Subjective
In Measuring Safety Part, 1 we reviewed the drawbacks of focusing solely on the measurement of safety outcomes absent understanding and tracking operational processes and events that are predictive of a safe workplace. In Part 2 of the series, we dove deeper into the implications of this thinking by reviewing “Serious Injury Fatality” (SIF). In this Part 3, we look at the subjective nature of serious injury and fatality prevention recording and whether SIF is indeed the better approach to take.
Building a SIF Safety Triangle addresses previous serious safety prevention framework shortcomings, but it also introduces new issues. Our next question: Who decides upon the categorization of processes and events that have the potential for serious injury and fatality? Also, how is this categorization done?
It seems to be relatively easy to define some categories that separate SIF from the non-SIF … Read more...
