Safety benchmarking results

Safety benchmarking data – EHS Management Institute – 2020. 

Independent benchmarking research was taken by the EHS Management Institute, with contribution from Donesafe, ‘The People’s Safety Software’, released its annual survey of over 70 EHS professionals across more than 25 industries. 

65% of the respondents – safety leaders responsible for reducing risks in the environment, health, and safety operations – complain their current safety management solution does not meet the requirements of their business. 50% go on to note that they would invest in new technology to replace their current system in 2020. 

These respondents are looking to invest in new technology to improve their current management systems. High priorities for technology investment in 2020 are improving incident management (71% of respondents), enhancing workplace health and safety (63% of respondents), and focusing on risk management (57% of respondents). 

“This is in line with buying trends at Donesafe,” explains Graham Martin of Donesafe. “In 2019, we saw an unprecedented number of clients looking to Donesafe to consolidate their management of health and safety, and in particular Incidents and Risk.”

When considering the top 3 triggers for investment into technology, a huge 45% pin-pointed clunky and inefficient systems as the primary reason. Lack of employee engagement (35%) and lack of visibility into data and performance (30%) rounded off the top 3 triggers.
