Executive Summary

Whilst some firms invest in software to cover a multitude of industrial risk management usage scenarios, other buyers are primarily interested in digitizing their approach to the safe control of work. To help operations leaders seeking to better control risks arising from maintenance and production work, this software benchmark provides a detailed analysis of functionality used to meet control of work objectives. The analysis covers capabilities offered by 17 software vendors for job hazard analysis, isolation management, permit to work, and shift management. The report finds that three operational risk management vendors — eVision, Petrotechnics and RAP International — have the broadest and deepest control of work functionality. Given the specialized nature of control of work requirements, customers should select vendors who: offer functionality for all four elements of control of work; native mobile apps; and integration with asset performance management software.
