An integrated WHS and environmental management platform

ecoPortal and Environment Essentials have announced the integration between their two software products. Work health and safety (WHS) and environmental managers can now access Environment Essential’s plain-English summaries of Australian and New Zealand legislation within ecoPortal’s integrated WHS and Environmental Management Platform. The integration aims to help WHS managers save time by not having to search for legal obligations in a separate document, online or in another software.

The integration of Environment Essential’s SafetyLaw into ecoPortal’s safety management software is designed to provide businesses with an all-encompassing health, safety and environmental risk management platform. The integration seeks to address one of the key challenges that WHS leaders face, which is that they not only need to understand their company’s legal obligations, but also need to be able to communicate the impact of those obligations in the day-to-day operations of the company, across all levels.

This integration not only helps WHS managers to access legal obligation summaries in simple language but also links these requirements to their specific hazards, operational procedures and other elements within their management systems. As employees are using ecoPortal on a regular basis, WHS and environmental leaders are in a position to integrate any new/updated legal obligations into the safety culture of their company.

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, Stolthaven, XLam and Tourism Holdings are some of the clients that have adopted the integration. ecoPortal is designed to be a configurable and easy-to-use health, safety and environmental risk management platform that moulds itself to a company’s unique safety and environmental requirements and management culture.

ecoPortal works with clients from a range of industries including manufacturing, mining, retail, and food and beverage. ecoPortal will have a stand at the forthcoming SAFETYconnect 2019, 28–29 August at the Crown Conference Centre, Melbourne.
