How can we help make safety simpler?


  • What Information do safety professional need to make insightful decisions?
  • In addition, what is the easiest way for onsite workers to access the documentation and forms that they need to do their jobs safely?
  • Do you need to know specific information about each work site?
  • Similarly, is there particular information you need to know about contractors?
  • How can the audit process be simplified?
  • Can the findings from audits be used to generate lasting safety improvements?  In other words, fewer OSHA violations should be an outcome of a thorough audit process.

In conclusion, we want to help figure out why these OSHA violations are so prevalent.  Most Importantly, we want to be part of the solution.
