Global program development starts with risk assessments specific to your industry, sites and global locations. An EHS Risk Assessment, in many countries, is the first step to identify and analyze hazards that could impact your sites or your employees. Without a risk assessment it can make it more challenging to fully understand what risks are applicable. Risk assessments also create a solid foundation to evaluate what written programs and training you may need to develop and implement. In many countries, the risk assessment is truly the basis of your entire EHS program, so it is important to understand your compliance requirements, but also consider the value of implementing a risk assessment process across your organization.
Through our unique operating model, an Inogen Alliance associate provides a single point of contact to obtain global expertise to help you refine and/or create and implement global strategy, policy, compliance programs, and risk assessments for environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability.

Global Programs that Integrate Meaningful Local Nuances
Having been involved in Inogen Alliance for more than 17 years and having the opportunity to lead multinational accounts, I’m constantly reminded how adept my Inogen Alliance colleagues are in meshing their knowledge of local regulations and cultural aspects and applying it to the unique risk profiles of multinational organizations. The results are global programs that not only meet the requirements and expectations of our corporate clients but are also meaningful and implementable at the local level.

EHS Compliance Applicability Validity
Each site completed an Enhesa scorecard on their own. This involved reviewing specific questions to deteremine which regulations were in scope with the site's operations. Then, a screening tool was applied to remove all regulations that were not relevant. The site contacts then assessed each remaining regulation to determine if they were in compliance or not, or if the regulation was not applicable to them.
Next, our Inogen Alliance was sent the completed scorecards. Inogen reviewed the screening questions and the responses to each requirement within the scorecard. Our Inogen partners then had a call with the site contacts to review the responses and validate that they were completed properly. The finalized scorecard was delivered to the client after Inogen validated its accuracy.
There was a cost savings for the client in having each site contact complete the scorecard on their own. Additionally, the added benefit is that a local regulatory expert was able to review and validate each individual scorecard to ensure it was completed accurately. This allowed the client to be confident about the degree of accuracy in the assessment tool, since it was not originally completed by a H&S expert.
