Executive Summary

This report provides executives within EHS, process safety and operational roles with an overview of 15 prominent process safety management (PSM) software vendors available on the market today.

Having originally been targeted at firms within industries that operate with hazardous substances, such as chemicals, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals, PSM software functionality is now seeing increasing usage amongst clients in a wider range of verticals who are aiming to manage risk more proactively. Executives should use this guide to support them in their initial searches for a PSM solution that meets their functionality requirements.
