Using leading indicators to keep workers safe and well
Tap Into Safety is a technology company on a mission to reduce injuries in high risk workplaces. Underpinned by university research, the business combines interactive technology with modern learning practices to produce a methodology that focuses on the individual worker.
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.
The vision is to move the safety induction from compliance ‘tick and flick’ to its real purpose of ensuring new employees know how to work safely in the work environment they are about to go into. This includes training on both physical and mental health hazards that commences at the safety induction and extends into ongoing refresher and workplace training programmes.
