Verdantix Says EH&S Leaders Should Upgrade Incident Management Processes Given the Breadth and Quality of Incident Management Software
New York, June 20, 2016. A new assessment of the incident management software market finds that EH&S leaders can choose between 31 different incident management software applications. According to independent analyst firm Verdantix, the increasingly rich functionality for incident management reflects the priority that corporations put on understanding why incidents occur in order to avoid them in the future.
“In recent years, getting a better understanding of why operational incidents occur has been a top priority for many EH&S leaders due to the potential to save lives, reduce injury rates, avoid fines, and eliminate workers’ compensation claim costs” commented Jordan Nadian, Verdantix Industry Analyst. “When we interviewed 312 EH&S decision-makers 60 percent of them told us that improving incident management was a high priority in 2016 and a further 32 percent said it was a moderate priority. Those survey statistics confirm what we are seeing in the market.”
The Verdantix report ‘Smart Innovators: Incident Management Software’ is the only independent analysis of the wide range of incident management software available on the market. Key findings include:
- Customers identify five major elements of the business case for investing in incident management software spanning better compliance, improved risk management, shutdown avoidance and enhancing business continuity plans, and enhancing contractor safety performance.
- EH&S leaders find that software helps achieve better incident management outcomes through universal access to incident and near miss reporting, consolidation of enterprise-wide incident data in one database, streamlined regulatory reporting, intelligent tools for incident investigation and root cause analysis, and functionality for assigning and tracking corrective action plans.
- Specialist vendors in the incident management software market which customers may not have identified include Airsweb, ecoPortal, Effective Software, EHS Insight, Emisoft, ERA Environmental, eVision, EXP, Integrum, IsoMetrix, NordSafety, RegAction and SHE Software.
“Buyers of incident management software need to ensure their organization is willing to drive a culture of continuous engagement to achieve the best outcomes,” commented David Metcalfe, Verdantix CEO. “Innovations in cloud-based software and mobile technology mean the EH&S team can push incident logging activities to plant and field operatives. The rich data set they collect will become a gold mine for better industrial operations risk management. Future developments in incident management will be more worker-centric such as the MySafety offering from Questback.”
