A gap analysis is an extremely useful tool that EHS management can use to zero in on areas in need of improvement that will give them the highest level of ROI. Like an audit, a gap analysis requires personnel to provide evidence that they have met specific standards and requirements; however, a gap analysis will also include a high-level look at management practices, culture, and operational performance. The purpose is to uncover gaps, prioritize them based on seriousness, and recommend corrective actions, including timelines for completion.

 

The benefits of performing a gap analysis include:

  • Discovering and correcting deficiencies to avoid incidents and regulatory citations
  • Obtaining an objective third-party opinion on the quality and efficacy of EHS programs, policies, and procedures
  • Developing a guide to focus resources in areas that will have the largest impact on improving health and safety
