Our highest priority at EHS GRADES is to ensure that all of our clients achieve and maintain outstanding EHS performances through continuous improvement. Without it, the likelihood of a business to become successful or to maintain excellence is greatly diminished.
We believe that any organization that is focused on the environmental health and safety of their most important asset (employees) must be willing to do a regular self-reflection by taking a long and sincere hard look in the mirror. Without regular checks for corrections and improvements, most companies would never know where they truly stand regarding their EHS performances.
The ImproveNow! Program is a component of the EHS GRADES Zero-In-View Initiative (ZIVI) that was developed to encourage companies to be proactive in developing and implementing methods involving a continuous "check up" of their programs to improve their overall EHS performance. The Zero-In-View initiative is based on the EHS GRADES Vision of zero incidents, injuries, and fatalities in the workplace.
Businesses that are enrolled in ImproveNow! are able to quickly track key performance indicators, and analyze their day-to-day operations to help improve and sustain outstanding performance. As a result, our participating member companies have been able to drastically reduce workplace injuries and fatalities.
Through the ImproveNow! Program, we encourage our clients to realize that the evaluation of their performances could be an indication of excellence, movement in the right direction or need for improvement in their respective EHS programs. As a result, we encourage all stakeholders to fully support environmental health and safety initiatives at EHS GRADES and at their respective organizations.
In addition, we work with our members that are enrolled in ImproveNow! to ensure that the necessary resources are provided to maintain programs for EHS training, awareness, and competency. Also, the program requires that all participating companies have an active Emergency Preparedness and Crisis Response Plan, which considers the capability to manage and respond to crises, emergencies, and incidents.
The common types of audits that we require include compliance auditing, hazard identification auditing, and program development auditing. Our accredited auditors are specially trained to focus on procedures that will provide a wide range of information, including cost reduction opportunities, mitigation of economic and human losses, continuous improvement and management systems effectiveness for companies.
All EHS GRADES subscribing member companies are encouraged to enroll in the program. Participants include businesses all over the world including chemical processing and manufacturing companies, oil and gas explorers and producers, construction companies, power and utility companies, healthcare, etc. and their contractors.
EHS GRADES ensures that all companies in the ImproveNow! Program have highly effective EHS management programs and processes that can be continually evaluated and improved upon. Periodically, we send out invitation emails to members that have not enrolled in our various program improvement initiatives. Join EHS GRADES to participate in the ImproveNow! Program.
