Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA) was established in early 2012 by 13 major oil sands producers in Calgary. Their vision is to enable responsible and sustainable growth in Canada’s oil sands while delivering accelerated improvement in environmental performance through collaborative action and innovation. Sharing many of COSIA’s beliefs, Hitachi is committed to drive innovation and collaboration that will improve safety in people’s lives. Hitachi offers a lean business process management solution, called WorksBase®, that was designed to help Energy businesses improve collaboration and the effectiveness of Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS or HSE) systems. Here’s how WorksBase can help COSIA’s members and associate members improve environmental management in Canada’s oil sands and meet the goals established in their vision.
