Extraction program for EH&S (EH&S to XI scenario)

Dear Experts,

I am from the XI background and am new to EH&S. I would like to know whether there exists an extraction program to extract substance data from EH&S(ECC) and send it to XI. If yes then what is it? The EH&S team here doesn't know of any kind. They have only used Change pointers to extract data from one client to the another.

Please help.

    EH&S supports ALE to distribute substance data from one system to another.

    You can set up ALE to send IDOCs to XI.

      This issue is regrding the distribution model. We want to transfer the EHS data from 4.6 to ECC 6.0. Below is the requirement:

      1. There are few classes which needs to be distributed and not all classes and its charecterstics in the property tree.

      2. I have created a distribution model for it and entered the classes which are relevant for e.g. Flash point is the class (SAP_EHS_1014_009) which is there in the dist model. So when I change any charecterstics value in this class and Run BD21 then I can see the Class in the list under the segment E1BP1077VH and the changed charecteristics is under the segment E1BP1077PR. Which seems to be correct- But when I change another charecterstics of another class (SAP_EHS_1013_013) which is not there in the dist model. Then BD21 and still I can see the new Charecte. in the WE02 though the class is not in the distribution model. Meaning its not filtering out the irrelavant charecterstics in the property tree. Thats the reason all property data is getting transfred.

      Is there is any customizing setting? I think as a Standard process it must filter out the changes of the classes which are not there in the distribution model. DO you have any hint on this?

    Designated Substance Compliance Program


    Designated Substances are those substances designated as hazardous by the Ministry of Labour under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Section 70 (2) 23.

    The Act defines a designated substance as:

    a biological, chemical or physical agent or combination thereof prescribed as a designated substance to which the exposure of a worker is prohibited, regulated, restricted, limited or controlled.

    A regulation specifies procedures for control of the substance. The following substances have been designated:

    Acrylonitrile (1984)

    Arsenic (1986)

    Asbestos (1982)

    Asbestos - Construction, Building & Repair (1985)

    Benzene (1984)

    Coke Oven Emissions (1982)

    Ethylene Oxide (1987)

    Isocyanates (1983)

    Lead (1981)

    Mercury (1982)

    Silica (1983)

    Vinyl Chloride (1982)

    When a designated substance is present in the workplace, the Occupational Health and Safety Act requires the employer to review the work methods and assess the likelihood of worker exposure. When there is likelihood of worker exposure, a control program must be instituted that includes engineering controls, work practices, hygiene practices, record keeping and medical surveillance, if applicable.

    The Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) must be consulted with regard to both the assessment and the control program.

    Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) in the Department of University Safety coordinates the Designated Substances Compliance Program.


    When a designated substance is present in the workplace, the supervisor must complete an assessment of the use of the substance. This assessment is to determine if a health hazard exists for workers and whether or not a control program is required. The assessment will include the following:

    information regarding the use, handling, storage and disposal of the designated substance,

    actual and potential exposure of workers to the substance, and

    methods and procedures required to control that exposure.

    Assessment forms and copies of the Regulations for each substance are available from EHS.

    The completed document will be sent to EHS for consultation with the JHSC.

    In some cases, further evaluation of the assessment and establishment of a control program may be required. The supervisor and department head will develop the control program. The control program includes action taken to protect workers from exposure to the designated substance and procedures to monitor exposure. Documentation of the control program will be provided to EHS.
