The world’s leading platform for workplace safety and efficiency is now making it even easier for workers to remove points of failure, focus on core tasks and capture anything that raises concern. As businesses grapple with evolving COVID-19 regulations and complex work environments, SafetyCulture continues to deliver practical solutions.
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 greater visibility and the power to spring into action 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 that raises 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 the last 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. We knew that giving our customers a clearer profile of their organisations would give them the ability to get ahead of problems and their competitors. We’re giving teams the tools to communicate more fluidly so they’re agile and ever-ready to react.”
“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. They tend to do two things well – they build visibility across their business through real time data capture, and they empower their frontline workers to take ownership. 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.
In addition to its Safely Back to Business initiative and product launches, 2020 has seen SafetyCulture raise £32.2 million. This takes it to a pre-money valuation of £740 million and propels the company’s mission to help organisations achieve safer and more efficient workplaces.
