    Hi Sriram,

    Not sure what kind of answer you are expecting. They are basically doing the same then for any other SAP Module :

    Adjust the system to the customer needs / wants - which depends on the customer and business 😉

    I'll give it a try anyway since I developed for SAP EHS Projects for over 10 Years.

    A developers on an EH&S Project would most likely do one or more of these things:

    • Export programs of EHS Documents - mostly SDSs.
    • Adjust standard report shipment logic via customer exits
    • Adjust WWI Templates - and develop additional WWI Symbols and or Symbol Methods and develop complete new WWI Templates (Labels, SDS, technical data sheets, SOPs etc...)
    • Develop custom reports 😊: either for reporting or supporting the creation and management of EHS Documents
    • Interfaces to other systems
    • Develop additional checks within the EHS Specification Database via customer exits and BADIs
    • Export programs of EHS Documents - mostly SDSs.

    This list for Product Safety implementations - other SAP EHS Modules are different.

    Hope this helps
