“Implement an enterprise Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) technology solution and establish common, corporate-wide environmental work processes.” Sounds simple enough, but there is a lot of program management, technology, and skilled technical staff who must work together to make an enterprise EHS project work. In this article, we’ll take a brief look at how Mead Corporation, along with CH2M HILL and Essential Technologies Inc. worked together (and continue to do so) to pilot and launch a corporate wide EHS Management Information Systems (EMIS).

 

The Mead Corporation(http://www.mead.com)is a forest productscompany with $4.4billion in annual sales,and is one of the leadingNorth Americanproducers of coatedpaper, coatedpaperboard, and consumer and officeproducts. Headquartered in Dayton,Ohio, Mead has more than 15,000employees with operations in 32countries. As environmental, health, andsafety standards become increasinglycomplex, one can imagine the types ofEHS information that are routinelytracked, reviewed, and reported on.Process information, emission points,analyzer output, chemical usage, workarea definitions, hazardous materialstorage areas, hazardous waste profiles,and effluent volumes provide just a smallsampling of the data types that aremanaged by the Environmental Healthand Safety professionals at Mead.
