EHS Metrics that Matter: Measuring Performance and Demonstrating Value

Download the Full PDF


Environmental, health, and safety (EHS) excellence is an investment. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) claims that for every dollar put into a successful EHS program, it offers savings of $4 to $6. EHS commitment is a responsibility of every organization, and it pays off with reduced expenses, enhanced output, and boosted morale for everyone involved.

OSHA’s claim isn’t far off from the truth. Any organization's success may be traced back to its commitment to its culture of safety and compliance. Successful, progressive, and leading businesses today continuously leverage the data to raise the quality of their environmental, health, and safety (EHS) standards. These businesses, at the forefront, empower their teams with modern technology to collect and make sense of this data. 

You can also leverage modern technology by adopting robust EHS tools to optimize your EHS program. They can help your business streamline resource allocation and position you to make data-driven decisions. However, the first step in making the most of these tools is knowing how to measure data.

In 2022, EHS Today awarded Ballard Marine Construction as the safest company in the United States of America. EHS Today applauds Ballad Marine by stating: “Ballard Marine Construction knows it can’t improve what it doesn’t measure, which is why it measures what it values.”  

Note the emphasis on the need for measurement for excellence. You may collect data, but without measuring it, no software can analyze it to give you the necessary information to implement changes. And how do you or your EHS software measure data? With the right metrics! 

The set of the right metrics can help you gauge available data to evaluate the efficacy of your EHS management strategies. These Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) help companies navigate their duty to safeguard their employees and the environment. They show you where your EHS program is lagging/thriving, where changes need to be made, how incidents can be prevented in the future, and what actions contribute to success.

This information is invaluable as it might help you enhance your EHS program for even better results. When you’re considering digital transformation in EHS for your business, you’ll need to have a clear understanding of industry-standard metrics. In this whitepaper, we’ll go over EHS metrics and indicators that you must track using your EHS software if you truly want to stay ahead in the game of corporate responsibilities.
