How EHS Software Supports Remote Work & Collaboration
Whether you’re working from home, managing a remote team, or just want to improve communication across departments and locations, collaboration is key to success.
Fortunately, there are a plethora of tools out there that can shorten the distance and help your whole team work together. One such tool is EHS software.
EHS software brings together all your regulatory compliance, risk, and sustainability data and activities in one place, helping employees share information efficiently. All you need is a laptop or mobile device and an internet connection.
Today, many companies are using Perillon to monitor deadlines, analyze performance trends, create reports, and more — all while working from home. But if you’re not using EHS software yet, it’s not too late to get on board. Perillon can be implemented 100% remotely, which means you can get up and running without needing to have someone from our team come on-site to meet with people.
Below, let’s look at a few ways EHS software can help your team stay connected and plugged in — wherever they are.
Improve efficiency across teams
Whether you have 10 employees or 1000, EHS software helps people work together seamlessly. Instead of emailing files back and forth, centralized EHS software makes it possible to view documents like permits, contracts, and agreements in one easily accessible place. Not only that, but everyone has access to the same data in real-time. Team members can efficiently share information across departments and locations, which means fewer emails and Skype meetings and more time to focus on the work that matters.
Work from anywhere
When you use paper and pencil to manage EHS tasks and data, you’re limited to the office. But with EHS software, your data is accessible from any device with an internet connection. If you need to work from home, you can easily stay connected to what’s happening in the company. Monitor projects and developments, get notified of important deadlines, and respond to requests in a timely manner — all from your laptop or smartphone.
EHS software also reduces the need for travel because employees can perform tasks like audits and inspections on-site and sync the data wirelessly to the centralized system. Not only does this make your entire team more productive, just think how much you’ll save on airline tickets, car rentals, and hotel accommodations.
Distribute the workload
Without a system in place, projects fall behind, important deadlines slip through the cracks, and people are stressed. It’s hard to know how much each person is doing and what they can take on. EHS software solves this problem by giving you the ability to manage your tasks and due dates in a centralized calendar so you can see what everyone’s working on at any given time.
That level of insight is a game-changer. You’ll instantly know who has too much on their plate so you can assign tasks fairly. You’ll also know who has the bandwidth to take on additional work so you can delegate tasks effectively. The end result is less confusion around responsibilities, fewer missed deadlines, and better performance all around.
EHS software allows you to see what’s happening across your organization — no matter where you are in the world.
Instead of having to pick up the phone for updates, senior management can get a bird’s eye view of the company’s performance in personalized executive dashboards. Managers at all levels will benefit from having access to critical information so they can spot issues and make adjustments in real-time and from anywhere.
At the same time, EHS software helps protect sensitive information by limiting access to data based on who actually needs it. Everyone has access to the information they need to do their jobs — and nothing more.
Start a remote implementation now
As you can see, EHS software can help your team work together seamlessly from anywhere in the world. If you’re not using a centralized software system yet, now is the time to get started. With Perillon, you can be up and running in 30 days and the entire implementation and user training can be done remotely.
