in the Face of Change

A Safe Organization Requires a Safety Culture Powered by Digital Insights

In the EU, work-related incidents and injuries cost 476 billion euros a year while in the United States work-related injuries cost employers more than $170 billion each year. It is no longer good enough to simply be in compliance with regulatory guidelines; companies must continually look to improve the safety of their workforce. We continue to see the demand for reliable EHS&S software rising because companies want to do better for their people, their processes and their communities. Noncompliance can mean huge fines and financial charges, but can also affect the company’s overall performance and cause serious global damage to the organization’s reputation.

Our latest Sphera Safety Survey found that:

Digitalization has immense potential to support nearly all mission-critical business processes. Why is there so little technology adoption for health and safety management processes?

Organizations can improve their safety culture, ensure their workforce’s safety and drive productivity through advanced data, software and expertise. Recent analyst reports confirm that EHS&S leaders understand that digital technology plays an essential role in EHS&S management and performance.

“The accelerated digitization of EHS processes and the increasing long-term focus on operationalizing ESG and sustainability risk management will shape the EHS software market in the next five years.”
