Procurement, EHS and Safety: Essential Cross Functional Alignment for Continued Success
EHS departments and procurement professionals have to work together to ensure business continuity, employee safety and compliance. Often times, procurement may fall out of line with the project at hand due to that fact that resources are dedicated to managing categories and reducing spend. However, when EHS teams become involved, the alignment between procurement teams and risk assessment is vital. In cases such as chemical and raw material manufacturing, it is important that all materials are managed appropriately to ensure that any associated hazards are assessed, documented and managed.
