2020 State of Process Safety Management Operational Risk Management Survey Report

Since the 2019 Process Safety Management (PSM) and Operational Risk Management (ORM) Survey reports were published, all of us have experienced unprecedented change as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the fluctuation in oil and commodity pricing, which has impacted operating margins.

Ninety-one percent of respondents said that technology has made companies and their workers safer, up from 80% last year. The survey results point to how digitalization technologies, in the form of dynamic and simulated risk, are important to help overcome many safety and risk challenges.
