SAP EHS module in R/3 version

Dear Experts,

I have two questions about EHS module:

- We are using R/3 4.7, so in order to use EHS functionality I have activated PLM extension. Is there any difference between R/3 and ECC in EHS module?

- The only books in English which are available to buy are three SAP Press.

For the following courses are there standard books or can I buy any other standard book in EHS?

  • SUS310 - SAP EHS Management - Essentials and Functions
  • SUS315 - SAP EHS Management - Essentials and Functions professional (EEF prof)
  • SU330R - SAP EHS Management - Occupational Health (OH)
  • SU410R - SAP EHS Management – Environmental Compliance (EC)
  • SU420R - SAP EHS Management Waste Management | SAP Training
  • SUS360 - SAP EHS Management - Product Safety (PS) | SAP Training

    I am not familiar with EHS but SAP Press has a book on the topic https://www.sap-press.com/incident-management-with-sap-ehs-management_3997/

    Thanks,

    You mean except these three SAP Press books (one only in German language), I cannot buy standard EHS books. Then would you please suggest me as a beginner how can I start?

    Hello Zohreh,

    Please through the link to understand the basics.

    https://blogs.sap.com/2013/05/07/sap-ehs-management-for-beginners/

    We are using R/3 4.7, so in order to use EHS functionality I have activated PLM extension. Is there any difference between R/3 and ECC in EHS module?

    SAP_PLM

    SAP_APPL you need to activate the BC sets.

    There is some updates in the version of Property trees if you want to create the SDS from SAP EHS.

    In order to use EHS functionality EHS is the vast area which functionality you need to use. Like Product safety or Health Safety ?

    Based on that you need to activate further BC set to achieve the complete functionality.

    I hope it helps.

    Thanks

    Satya

    Hi Jamir,

    There's another book: https://www.rheinwerk-verlag.de/sap-environment-health-and-safety-management_2557/
    but it is only available in German.

    In ECC there's new / changed / enhanced functionality - mostly in the EHSM topics - like the new incident management.

    Best

    Hello

    on top to the answers as still provided:

    1.) anybody is now looking to S/4 HANA; With S/4: forget about

    • SU330R - SAP EHS Management - Occupational Health (OH) => not supported any more
    • SU420R - SAP EHS Management Waste Management | SAP Training => not supported any more
    • and be aware of the fact that for "SU410R - SAP EHS Management – Environmental Compliance (EC)" we will have different solution (and we have no clue todaywhat kind of solution will come upat which pointin time)

    For

    • SUS310 - SAP EHS Management - Essentials and Functions
    • SUS315 - SAP EHS Management - Essentials and Functions professional (EEF prof)
    • SUS360 - SAP EHS Management - Product Safety (PS) | SAP Training

    we will see some totally different solution in place in S/4 HANA which you can not compare to the software which we have now in place.

    Therefore: you need to decide: is it worth now to get training?

    There is nothing to really add to the comments. We have only one "core" book and only available in german. This core book does not consider e.g. "GLM"..and it is "outdated" (but a very good starting point, but does not consider any enhancement as done with one of the many "Business Functions" now availablae in EHS classic)

    For "terms": please be aware that "terms" are a "challenge" (e.g. SAP ERP; my SAP ERP, SAP ECC, .... any many other terms).

    That means: EHS was "EHS" until version SAP Enterprise version 4.7 (EHS was an "add on" module). But afterward (EHS classic) was integrated in SAP ERP core (here ECC as term is used). Later on "EHSM" was invented (the correct term is "Component Extension for SAP EHS Management")

    Conclusion:

    1.) the topic as: "how to start an EHS career" was addressed very often here

    2.) the different terms (EHS /EHSM / ECC etc.) have been discussed often as well

    3.) as well the "training options" and "book options" have been addresssed often

    PLease check blog: https://blogs.sap.com/2013/05/07/sap-ehs-management-for-beginners/

    You will find some (may be) helpful "draft" overview. But be aware of the fact: The conent of this blogs get "outdated more and more" because of the move to S/4 HANA

    Good luck with your career and any kind of EHS project you will start

    C.B.

    Hello

    one comment on top:

    "We are using R/3 4.7, so in order to use EHS functionality I have activated PLM extension. Is there any difference between R/3 and ECC in EHS module?"!

    R/3 4.7 is "outdated" (R/3 Enterprise 4.7 Ext. 1.1 and Ext. 2.0). You should switch now to most current version of SAP ERP) This will be a big challenge for you. This kind of change belows to the "very big" ones. The documentation (what is different in EHS between EHS SAP ERP Enhpack 8 (current version of SAP ERP) and SAP Enterprise 4.7. is not "good"; and there are to many differences to list here. If i remember correct. SAP Entreprise is not supported anymore by SAP (maintenance period was stopped may be 2006... I can not remember.)

    SO CHANGE NOW to be able to use the many new features in EHS with the most up to date version

    You will find lot of treads here discussing differences (what is different if one compare SAP ERP 4.6. <> SAP ERP Enterprise 4.7 <> SAP ECC/ERP 5.0 <> SAP ERP/ECC 6.0 and SAP ERP/ECC 6.0 EnhPAck 8).

    It is not really "worth" to dig deeper. In most cases. Just do the change. And later learn: what is new; and check: ist this "new" part useful for the company

    C.B.

    PS: last comment: if you do not participate in the SAP trainings: you will not get the documents. It is not legal(you might get problems( to exchange these documents if you have not participated in the courses
