Executive Summary

In recent years, digitization has become a powerful tool to enhance and transform a firm’s EHS capabilities. Safety management, for example, is a key component of EHS, with the digitization of safety processes allowing for the use of less paper, leveraging occupational risk identification and serving to improve working conditions. This report focuses on how Danone, a global food and beverage firm, adopted software provider VelocityEHS’s control of work solution to improve its safety management and permitting processes. The digital platform, with its permit to work processes, and contractor and visitor management capabilities, helped Danone to screen, train and approve third parties working on Danone sites. EHS executives should use this report to understand how technology can streamline safety management, thus reducing the risk of workplace accidents.
