With the continuous progress of China’s industrialization, problems with the environment, health and safety (EHS) have become increasingly prominent. A study on EHS managers’ competency model shall help Chinese enterprises build up an EHS professional team and accomplish EHS managerial goals. This article adopts the “behavioral event interview” (BEI) method to extract characteristic indexes for EHS managers, and then conducts a questionnaire-based survey to collect data to establish and validate a basic competency model for Chinese EHS managers.
