    Dear Arjun

    comparable questions has been asked here: but there are a lot more like that in this FORUM. Can be used for a "beginner" in EHS and list a number of links to similar threads (how to start with EHS?)

    I can only provide you an overview about the topic.

    regarding: Do we need to be good at every module or any two modules is ok to get in to the market ( Ex: IHS & Dangerous Goods)

    The career of an EHS consultant / developer etc. normally starts with set up of SAP EHS BD, SAP EHS SAF and SAP EHS DGP. Therefore at least here you need to know the topic very well as these modules are the "basic" ones (and e.g. SVT, Waste, IH etc. is based on this set up / knowledge)

    Based on needs other topics are added step by step (e.g. Label Management etc.). Actually many companies are installing "Component Extenstion for SAP EHS Management" which can not be compared to the old solution.

    In the world there are enough job opportunities to start with EHS. If you execute a survey in this FORUM some "basics" are really needed. One of these is e.g. handling of WWI as mentioned by you as well. Some others are related to SDS/MSDS distribution and Damngerous Goods topic. By using "google" or similar internet query machines you will find enough job opportunities of any kind in the area of EHS.

    • Dear Arjun,

      From fresher point of view, it is essential that you need to know the key terminologies in any sub module. Identify why is it used, where it used, when do u use them. Say for eg: work area type. U need to identify, if it can be customized to our requirements. Before customizing, understand why does it require customization when the standard functionality is available.Get to know the process flow of any module. Can enhancement work for it?. If you take Product Safety and Dangerous goods, it has a lot of integration with logistics modules as C.B stated. Find out how is it integrated...The sustainability subject is vast and one cannot master everything at a time.Focus on one topic completely and the proceed based one xperience. There are a lot of thread posted in this forum for each topic and C.B has also collated it the document DOC-41109 . Learn the SAP Best practices. This will be helpful.
