The enhanced Software as a Service (SaaS)-based offering allows companies to monitor their operational risks in real time to help them make better business decisions.

CHICAGO, IL (October 12, 2021) – Sphera®, a leading global provider of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risk and performance management solutions, has announced an expansion to its SaaS-based Control of Work solution.

The quest for safe operations is a complex undertaking that starts with taking control. For over 30 years, companies have relied on Sphera’s Control of Work software to help them standardize and digitally transform their control of work processes, identify and manage risk exposure, connect disparate data and deliver safer, more efficient schedules.

New features and functionality of SpheraCloud Control of Work include:

  • A user-friendly, responsive interface for laptops or tablet that makes finding necessary information easier than ever before, which enhances the user experience.
  • A Permit Acceptor capability grants authorized users the permissions to accept permits on behalf of contractors, simplifying and providing a full audit trail of the contractor management process.
  • An Interactive Piping and Instrumentation Diagram module that enables users to set isolation and de-isolation points directly on the diagram making isolation planning safer, more efficient and effective.
  • A Personal Protective Equipment feature which provides a visual guide to inform users of the required company-approved, protective equipment needed for a type of job based on the substances individuals may encounter during a task.

In a recently published Verdantix report named Sphera a Market Leader for Process Safety Management (PSM), and Sphera’s Control of Work solution was cited as a competitive advantage for its functionality.

Now, with the enhanced SpheraCloud Control of Work solution, organizations will be able to operationalize their ESG initiatives related to governance easier to safely, sustainably and effectively manage operations. It will also capture the transactional data necessary to advance performance.

“This release is a significant milestone in our company’s history,” said Sphera CEO and President Paul Marushka. “As we advance our ESG capabilities through SpheraCloud, the reimagined Control of Work solution will help companies accelerate their journey to evolve processes and procedures to protect people, assets, communities and, ultimately, their reputation.”
