Best Practice : Compliance Management Report Card
Raytheon Missile Systems Company’s (RMSC’s) Environmental, Health, and Safety (EH&S) Compliance Management Report Card was created after Hughes (now Raytheon) merged with General Dynamics in 1993. The EH&S department initiated this environmental compliance management system to track multiple facilities and programs. The Report Card continues to be a valuable tool for RMSC in handling the merger of programs and facilities.
The Compliance Management Report Card uses a color-coded array of symbols (e.g., stars, squares, octagons) to identify each facility’s level of compliance (Figure 2-2). The symbols indicate the percentage of closed audit findings in various categories, while the color notes the alert status. Yellow identifies a caution for a facility, resulting in force action. Arrows which accompany symbols reflect whether progress is being made on audit findings. The colored symbols provide an easy visual guide, so employees and management can quickly determine a facility’s standings. In addition, each Report Card is accompanied with documentation for the 29 EH&S programs being evaluated.
The EH&S Compliance Management Report Card provides RMSC with a quick and easy way to identify successes and potential problems at each facility. This environmental compliance management system assists RMSC with its leadership plans for efficiently improving performance.
