EHS ORGANIZATIONS IN A SEA OF CHANGE

In many ways, EHS and other support staff organizations are like automobiles – they require fuel (people and skills), an engine (organizational structures), drive-trains and transmissions (systems, roles and responsibilities), and tires (service delivery techniques and expectations). When one or more parts of the system that helps the organization to advance its company or agency toward its destination isn’t up to the task, the entire system fails. All progress toward that destination ceases.

The Fall ’05 issue presented a few key pitfalls that EHS organizations and their leaders may encounter during the process of deciding, designing and implementing new organizational structures. In this issue we’ll review the major reasons for changing an organization’s structure, how to start off ‘on the right foot’, and the most common models for EHS organizational structures.
