EHS Scope

Enhesa covers

Enhesa’s service offering covers laws and regulations impacting your Operation and Products that fall within the remit of Environment, Health and Safety (EHS). In addition, Enhesa can also cover legislative proposals, policies and guidance.

Harmonized Structure

In order to provide a clear and defined structure to the information and analysis we provide, all our services are structured according to a standard thematic scope (see below). Under each of the principle thematic headings there are around 250 different sub-headings covered – giving a very in-depth coverage. The scope is applied across all standard services and across all of the (more than 200) jurisdictions we cover, meaning that it is easy to find the information you are looking for. It also makes it easier to compare requirements between different jurisdictions. Our standard offering is our Generic Industrial Manufacturing scope, which meets the needs of most of our clients. However, the thematic structure can also be easily tailored down to cover lower risk industries, such as Office and Warehouse environments.

Other Benefits

Other benefits of the structured subject-matter approach is that Enhesa can tailor up, or scale-down, its thematic coverage so that clients only receive information that is relevant to them; and Enhesa’s regulatory content can be mapped and provided as a datafeed compatible with a number of platforms.

Through applying the harmonized thematic structure Enhesa’s analysis and information is easily and conveniently packaged as datafeeds that can be delivered to a variety of third party EHS software platforms. Enhesa can also look at expanding the scope if needed to meet your specific needs.
