HSE Software

What is "HSE Software"?

HSE is an acronym for Health, Safety and Environment.  The term "HSE Software" really refers to a database driven enterprise software application that covers data from the various broad fields of environment and waste management, occupational health and medical, safety and industrial hygiene.  Typically an HSE manager would be responsible for collecting and storing HSE data for their organization in an HSE software application.  That HSE manager will use data over long periods of time to do trending, risk analysis and data mining by utilizing HSE Software reporting tools.  HSE managers can play a large roll in compliance, minimization of risk and savings corporate wide with an HSE software tool at their disposal.

When discussing HSE software, you will often here terms like integrating information technology or enterprise information management or data management to describe these types of systems.  The main goal of these HSE software systems is to bring together large amounts of data from various disciplines into one centralized data management application (usually driven by a back end database such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle or DB2). In doing so, an organization can now start looking at their data over longer periods of time to see trends and act on them.  This leads to one of the most important aspects of any business which can be handled by HSE software - Risk Management.

Risk management can be stated simply as setting action plans in the face of uncertainty by first understanding and issues related to risk, loss or other incident that can negatively effect your business.  HSE software is critical to a successful risk management program.  Analysis of your organization's data in ways that have not been looked at before can lead to positive change.  This type of trending can only be accomplished with a software solution that can integrate all aspects of your HSE program into one centralized database.

When an organization rolls out an integrated enterprise HSE software solution they are incorporating many areas that until now, have most likely been independent of each other.  In some organizations this means that each department has its own excel, access or home built database.  Sometimes a few departments even incorporate and off-the-shelf (OTS) software solution.  But in the end, each system and each department still works independently of each other without sharing and analyzing data as a whole.

Implementation of "HSE Software"

Generally implementation of HSE software involves the following steps.

  1. Consultation and preparation - understanding your needs and your network.

  2. Installation and configuration

  3. Legacy data transfer

  4. Training and startup

  5. Ongoing business analysis - changing and adapting the application to meet your changing business requirements.

All along the way, you will have the support of your HSE software provider to walk you through each step.

Integration:

A organization that realizes the importance of integration can maximize the ROI in many ways.  Rolling each department's systems into one integrated solution puts all the data in one centralized database and allows your organization to start running analytic trending. You can see where accidents occur.  You can determine company wide, where money is being spent and lost.  You can determine where and why employees are being injured. 

By going through the often tedious task of importing your legacy data from the last 5-10 years into an integrated HSE software solution, companies have been able to look at disturbing trends through analysis of that data and this prevent would could have been a tragic and costly accident.  This realization has saved companies millions of dollars and has maximized the return on investment many fold.

How expensive is HSE Software?

That depends on the modules you choose.  Since HSE software covers so many areas - occupational health and medical, environment and waste management, industrial hygiene and safety, plus compliance and risk management, having a modular solution is the smart way to go so you can pick and choose which areas of data you want to manage.
