EHS Management System

Our EHS management system framework is comprised of a collection of processes and practices aimed at minimizing our environmental footprint while maximizing operational efficiency and safety. 

This framework is built upon standardized work, guidelines, and established processes, which include the following key components: 

  1. Standardized procedures serve as the cornerstone of our EHS Management System. Every Ingersoll Rand facility worldwide adopts this framework of standardized procedures, and individual functional owners at each site are accountable for implementing and overseeing all aspects of Ingersoll Rand’s EHS Management System.
  2. A performance management program is in place where each site annually conducts a compliance self-assessment. Approximately every three years, locations are audited by a group of Ingersoll Rand EHS professionals, validating the standard work is implemented. In addition, some of our sites are ISO 14001, ISO 45001, ISO 50001, or have other country or organization-specific certifications such as MASE or VCA.
  3. Best practices are shared across all locations on a monthly Global EHS Learning Session for adaptation by other locations where relevant.
  4. EHS training is carried out in compliance with both country and local regulations, as well as adhering to Ingersoll Rand’s standardized procedures. The progress and completion of training sessions are recorded, ensuring comprehensive tracking and documentation.
  5. All EHS metrics are monitored and recorded in our comprehensive company-wide database. On a monthly basis, these metrics are communicated to our CEO, Executive Leadership Team, and all location management, ensuring transparency and alignment across the organization.
  6. Our company database enables us to track capital EHS investments and operating expenses throughout the entire process, from the idea stage to implementation. This tracking encompasses several elements, including resources, capital and operating costs, waste and recycling, water utilization, energy consumption, and GHG savings. 

Through our EHS Management System, our global EHS leaders are empowered to prioritize the safety and well-being of our people and communities worldwide. This comprehensive system extends its coverage to all employees as well as workers who are not direct employees but whose work is overseen by Ingersoll Rand.
