Executive Summary

This report provides corporate decision-makers and buyers of industrial hygiene (IH) and occupational health (OH) software with an overview of the current market—highlighting technology trends, innovations, opportunities and growth areas to anticipate. The IH and OH software landscape has transitioned from one-size-fits-all enterprise solutions to solutions that are specially developed to meet the needs of industrial hygienists and EHS generalists. As firms outsource IH and OH duties to third parties, EHS generalists are increasingly required to fill these roles. Hence, firms need solutions that are simple enough for the EHS generalist but also cater to the seasoned industrial hygienist. This report covers nine vendors of EHS, IH and OH software with value propositions that leverage trending or emerging innovations in the EHS digital technology landscape to provide such solutions.
