Using leading indicators to keep workers safe and well
In 2012, Tap Into Safety founders Susanne Bahn and Geoff Bahn identified a key problem. While mandatory safety training and site inductions were commonplace, it was inexperience, hazard blindness and worker stress that were the greatest factors contributing to work related injuries and fatalities. They set out to solve what they saw was a largely unaddressed problem within industry: the lack of engagement in safety and mental health training.
Our vision is to move the safety induction away from the compliance ‘tick and flick’ closer to its real purpose of ensuring all employees know how to work safely in their work environment. We want to support organisations to change the behaviour in safety training. We want to work alongside organisations to see the number of workplace injuries decrease.
Shaped by research, our unique software platform includes two workplace training solutions for physical and mental health hazards that can commence at the safety induction and extend onto ongoing refresher and workplace training programs.
To combine research and technology to highlight and address early warning indicators of poor hazard awareness and declining mental health.
To value the unique needs of our clients, the security of their data and the health and safety of their workers.
We offer two workplace health and safety training solutions within one platform. Our safety and mental health solutions can include over 28 pre-built modules or our team of in-house developers and designers can customise versions specific to your organisation.
We use your organisation’s existing workplace health and safety data to build an individualised, interactive and immersive hazard perception training solution to complement your existing workplace training.
Our cloud-based interactive training modules can be completed in under 15 minutes and are available online and via smart devices.
Through using 360-degree panoramic photography our workplace safety training solution allows staff to interact with the gaming platform to determine if there are any gaps in their safety knowledge. This allows organisations to assess, measure and improve hazard perception through detailed results and reports.
Our mental health training solution provides your organisation with animated customised scenarios of typical workplace issues that can impact on the mental health of the worker.
The solution combines these scenarios with a personal and anonymous mental health quiz that assesses stress, anxiety and depression levels.
The comprehensive reporting platform tracks these levels across your organisation. The analytical data draws comparisons within your organisation and compares results with the general population.
Our solution allows organisations to identify and address early indicators of workplace mental health issues before they affect performance.
