Return on Health, Safety and Environmental Investments (ROHSEI)

Return on Health, Safety and Environmental InvestmentsThe Return on Health, Safety and Environmental Investments (ROHSEI) product is a process and supporting software tool set developed for use by occupational health, safety and environmental professionals and others to provide a comprehensive look at investment decisions and to answer important questions, such as:

  • What health and safety or environmental investments should we make?
  • When should we make a particular investment?
  • Which health and safety or environmental investments create the greatest value to the organization?
  • How do we compare an operational investment decision to and HS&E decision?
  • How do we know we are doing the “right things” in the “right way”?
  • To which projects should we allocate our human resources?
  • How can we demonstrate the business value of our investment decisions?

The ROHSEI process facilitates and encourages a team approach and calculates financial metrics in a common language. It also facilitates an understanding of how change in one part of a business has an effect on the overall business. It is of great value to the HS&E professional when assessing capital and expense investment decisions such as material selections, capacity expansion, program development investment, resource allocation, training approaches and risk management strategies.
