EHS Audit Software in the Spotlight

Software designed to support EHS audits is one of the most widely deployed applications across environmental, health, and safety (EHS) processes. Penetration rates for audit software vie with incident management for top place. According to the Verdantix annual survey of 301 EHS decision-makers, 40% of firms already use software to enhance their EHS audit processes, and 2017 promises a good kick in spending. Six per cent of firms intend to replace existing homegrown or commercial systems, a further 6% will invest in an upgrade with their existing vendor, and an additional 8% plan to invest in EHS audit software for the first time. An impressive 20% of firms therefore plan some level of additional spend in this category during 2017.
