Networking Event

We invite you to join us on Wednesday 16 October to hear guest speakers talking about Enhancing Safety Through Innovative Technology.  The speakers Adam Poole, Co-founder and CEO of Safety Compass and Stuart Farquharson, Director Risk Talk will discuss apps which can support safety in the workplace.

Safety Compass users intuitive augmented reality to communicate hazard information to users in the field.  By accessing the worker's physical location, the app presents vital information on present dangers to the worker's phone, avoiding the necessity of bulky safety manuals to locate and manage risk. 

Using the phone's inbuilt camera and GPS system, the app displays real and present dangers to the viewer that adapt and compensate for the viewers field of vision.

Safety Compass represents a digital revolution in workplace safety that has the potential to bring lifesaving hazard information to frontline workers quickly and efficiently.

RiskTalk is a user friendly voice operated risk assessment tool aimed at enhancing risk assessment processes and safety behaviour, data retention for incidents, reviews and reporting.  RiskTalk is 100% online with no paper forms or manual data entry processes.  It incorporates live updates, automated reporting, and improved efficiency in completing safety assessments, hazard and incident reporting and safety observations.
