If you check Specification Category you will find one quite interesting thread discussing the options to "customize" EHS classic.

This option shows the "highest" option (which I know) in hierarchy you can use to start the work and generate a complete different EHS Classic "look and feel". You should only use this option if you really have a good picture about the SAP architecture used (e.g. reading, writing data etc.).

The options to change EHS classic function using the SAP standard are quite large. Some examples are mentioned here:

Customer Exits in SAP EHS MANAGEMENT

Further examples are mentioned here:

EHS Specification Identifier Exit

How to configure VAT of Category COMPOSITION

Identifiers in Material Master Specification Screen

Especially the last option is a "core" one which is used very often. The use of so called "Identification listings". Here a lot of options exists to adapt EHS classic look and feel.

talks about set up of value assignment. Especially this option need to be checked deep. Not always you will get the "wished" effect.

Especially in the "design" of a property tree a lot of options exists to "enhance/change/modify" look and feel in EHS. Some examples are listed here

If you dig deeper in the technical part of this set up you will immediately identify additional options to "change" lool and feel of EHS. Some of these options are really helpful. PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE set up of standard SAP Value assignment type and if so: DOCUMENT WELL your changes.

Generally. Check SAP Online help. e.g. Value Assignment Types and Characteristics Setup - Basic Data and Tools (EHS-BD) - SAP Library

as well as:

Value Assignment - Specification Management (EHS-BD-SPE) - SAP Library

Creating Characteristic Fields in EH&S - Basic Data and Tools (EHS-BD) - SAP Library

Further more. If you check customizing you will find options to change look and feel of "Hitlist" in CG02/CB02BD.
