Information : Environmental, Health, and Safety Strategic Plan and Goals Process
The EH&S Strategic Plan creates the foundation for Raytheon Missile Systems Company’s (RMSC’s) EH&S management system, and provides the vision, mission, and guiding strategic objectives for the company’s EH&S programs. The plan is also aligned with the five focus areas (customer satisfaction, competitiveness, quality, people development, and financial performance) of Vision 2000.
A cross-functional team of key stakeholders implemented the EH&S Strategic Plan as a long-term strategic method to guide EH&S programs into the future as well as provide consistent, annual EH&S objectives and priorities. A weekly EH&S conference call is used to communicate common problems between 80 sites, and an annual corporate conference is held to promote the sharing of knowledge among all Raytheon sites. A Missile Systems EH&S Quality Leadership council is also being established to emulate the philosophy of the RMSC Leadership Team. The EH&S Strategic Plan translates the corporate objectives into strategic elements and processes.
Based on the principles of ISO-14000, the EH&S Strategic Plan forms the basis of the annual goal planning processes, and helps provide year-to-year business consistency. Goals of the EH&S Business Plan include:
100% process efficiency 100% employee productivity
Reduce solid waste generation by 20% (1997 baseline)
Reduce industrial waste generation by 30% (1997 baseline)
Reduce hazardous waste generation by 15% (1997 baseline)
Reduce energy costs by 30% to 50% (1993 baseline)
Eliminate manufacturing use of MDA and ozone depleting chemicals by the year 2000
Attain overall environmental compliance rating for legacy sites (quarterly report card)
Reduce accident rate
Contribute to company’s cost reduction goal
RMSC is still in the process of aligning business activities, and integrating four different business cultures. Although the number of business units is still fluctuating, the EH&S Strategic Plan will help the company establish goals and objectives.
