SafetyCulture captures real-time risks to protect people and assets

As businesses adjust to Covid-19 regulations and an increasingly complex work environment, leading platform for workplace safety and efficiency, SafetyCulture, is making it easier for workers to remove points of failure, focus on core tasks and capture anything that raises concern.

SafetyCulture’s new products – Sensors and Incidents – are launching in line with safety becoming the world’s number one business priority and its Safely Back to Business programme.

Wireless sensors set to give workers greater piece of mind

Instead of physical monitoring of environmental conditions, and manually inputting results in a physical or digital form, UK workers will now be able to connect SafetyCulture sensors and data feeds in order to:

●      Contactlessly monitor conditions like temperature and humidity levels in real-time

●      Be alerted when things go out of range and respond instantly

This data flows to the iAuditor app – a mobile inspection platform that simplifies the auditing process. Data can pull from SafetyCulture’s own sensors, other monitoring systems customers already own, or even from third party data sources, like local weather. This provides teams with greater visibility and ability to mitigate loss or risk. 

Tightening regulations and increasing social scrutiny are driving companies globally to invest in automated systems to help identify and mitigate risks to their business.

Workers’ concerns become front and centre with Incidents product release

The launch of Incidents allows team members to capture anything of concern in the mind of the worker. Teams are empowered to be proactive in identifying and resolving risk and becoming active players in protecting people and property. 

With this new feature, UK workers can:

●      Capture incidents with a few taps and collect evidence 

●      Personalise categories such as “property damage”, “personal injury” or “near miss”

●      Notify the right people when an incident is raised so action can be taken.

For 14 years, SafetyCulture has led the market in mobile-first safety, quality and operational inspections. Its Chief Operating Officer, Alistair Venn, is confident these latest launches will not only support businesses with safety but also their growth: 

“We started work on these new products long before Covid-19. Giving our customers a clearer profile of their organisations provides them with the ability to get ahead of problems and their competitors.”

“Organisations who are surviving and thriving today are those who do not see safety and growth as a zero-sum game, but instead proactively lean into challenges and take ownership of risks. The top down compliance model is broken,” Venn continues. 

Already, more than 75,000 people worldwide are using iAuditor to complete daily Covid-19 inspections. SafetyCulture is set to play an even larger role in supporting businesses with its news sensors and incidents offering.  

SafetyCulture saw a 186% increase in Covid-19 inspections by UK businesses one week prior to the UK government mandating gatherings of less than 10 people on 23 March 2020. The number of inspections being conducted using the app has continued to grow a further 11% week-on-week since.
