What is Environment, Health and Safety, Sustainability Consulting Service? Why Propharm Japan?
EHSS stands for environment, occupational health, safety and sustainability. The comprehensive management and activities of EHSS are becoming essential part of all business. Our EHSS consulting services support your company's environmental impact survey, employee health and safety management, continuity of corporate activities, and development of a safe working environment for employees. One of the unique features of our service is that we serve from the upstream (strategy formulation) to the downstream (incorporation into on-site operations) level. We support not only development of the strategy on the paper but also actions to be implemented on site.
Benefit of Introducing Environment, Health and Safety, and Sustainability (EHSS) Consulting Services
Enhancement of the company's social credibility
Promulgation of EHSS initiatives and risk management are extending to the supply chain and business partners. By promoting integrated risk management and value establishment through the EHSS framework, we can expect not only risk controls but also improvement of the company's social credibility and prevention of losing business opportunities.
Improved efficiency of management operations
By integrating and operating management systems such as SO14001 and ISO45001 from the perspective of EHSS, it is possible to improve the efficiency of operations related to internal audits, management reviews, and external audits.
Reduction of audit costs
Through the integrated operation of various management systems, not only improvement of operational efficiency can be achieved but also reduction of personnel and other costs.

The appropriate management system will be formulated after fully understanding your company's current situation and needs through interviews. Tools will be developed with efficient management and operation methods following the below steps.
Step 1：Confirmation of current situation
We conduct interviews regarding the EHS tools and management systems currently in use, operational procedures (response when changes occur, methods of confirming applicable laws and regulations, personnel transfers and changes in personnel, internal training on legal compliance, etc.) and other related issues. We also review the management data and manuals.
Step 2：Extraction of issues to be improved / Identification of main elements of tools and management systems
Based on the results of Step 1, we identify and prioritize issues that need to be improved, identify the main elements of the tools, management systems and methods that your company needs, and propose how to utilize the tools and management systems.
Specifically, we identify the target facilities, points of change, and the scope of applicable laws and regulations in the tool to be constructed, and determine the tool framework.
Step 3：Development of tools
Based on the framework developed in Step 2, we develop the tool. After the draft is developed, we then make any necessary adjustments to finalize the tool upon your review.
Step 4：Tool maintenance/management proposal
To facilitate continuous use of the tools within your organization, we also update the laws and regulations and propose management and operation rules that define rules for self-inspection by each factory (maintenance of operation manuals, etc.).
