 Environmental, health and safety compliance management software is used to capture and control a variety of important regulatory information and data. This data can include administrative requirement task management, corrective action information, accident and incident information, chemical and hazardous substance information, industrial hygiene exposure assessment data, and environmental emissions and release information. Often, the reason for capturing this data is to fulfill or meet some regulatory requirement, but companies choosing to implement and maintain a compliance management software solution should take a broader view and look at these systems for driving continuous improvement in their organizations.

You do not have any installation requirements, as this quality management system is web based and you can log on to the system anywhere you go. It will give you the opportunity to manage all of your documents, by creating online folders for uploading and storage, viewing through strict version control, comprehensive tracking, archival, document approval and document access rules. You can also ensure that your customer complaints are being properly channeled and handled, with the ability to identify your root causes of complaints, perform investigations and ensure compliance and completion. You can also use your document control software as an audit manager, to schedule your audits with any number of auditees, ensure the proper auditing processes are being followed, ensure conformance, correction, and prevention. You can also implement competency testing software, to ensure that all of your employees are compliant, competent, and conform to your business's modus operandi. EHS Software

When selecting a compliance management software solution, the selection team will need to consider and answer several important questions. These questions include:

-How many people will need access to the system?
-What level of access will they need?
-How scalable will the system need to be?
-Will the system be multi-facility?
-Will the system be multi-country? And will language translation and internationalization be necessary? EHS Services

After answering these questions, the selection team should then develop a table listing all the user specifications and requirements. Each one should be identified as a "must have," "nice to have", or "not necessary." Keep in mind, that if you're an international company, that your selection team should include individuals from outside of the U.S. Once the key requirements have been compiled, then product information can be obtained, and on-line demonstrations can be scheduled. When viewing the events, ask yourself "Is this the type of information that can help drive continuous improvement in my organization?" If not, you should consider another solution. EHS Solutions
