dc.description.abstract The objective of this work is to evaluate the various management styles and systems applicable to the Environmental, Health, and Safety ('EHS') profession; furthermore, it will present ways in which managers will discover how to understand and evaluate projects from a 'business' point of view, allowing them to compete within their organization for capital and human resources. ... This paper will also discuss various evaluations used to ensure proper buy-in from management -- a process that will facilitate the allocation of human and financial resources to environment, health, and safety projects. The evaluation will focus on two primary elements. The first will be a literature review of established EHS management systems, presented in order to illustrate a basic understanding of associated management risks, recognized procedures, and observation techniques. The second element will confirm the efficacy of a new management concept and applicable management techniques. In this phase, it will analyze EHS programs and how they should be structured to facilitate these new techniques. en_US
