Data and analytics are important to lead environmental, health and safety programs that may help strengthen the reputation of the business. Advances in data management and analytics have changed the way of businesses. Leading companies have also earned significant returns on IT investments by using this information to drive better and timelier decision-making.
However, many have overlooked the benefits of advanced data analytics in assessing environmental, health and safety (EHS) performance. Data and analytics are an integral part of leading EHS and can contribute to reductions in incidents and operational overheads that directly impact the bottom line, improve employee morale, strengthen the reputation of the business and provide a point of differentiation in the business.
