About Tap into Safety and our Culture
In 2014, Tap into Safety Founders Dr 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, leadership and mental health training.
Off the success of the safety training courses, in 2016, they extended the platform to include training and support for employee mental health. They recognised the key issues that organisations face are stigma and the unwillingness to seek help by employees with declining mental health.
In 2020, they launched training to improve the skills of leaders, managers and supervisors. It became clear that there was a need for soft skills training with a focus on compliance for blue-collar industries.
Tap into Safety’s vision is to keep employees both physically and psychologically safe using engaging training. We want to support organisations to improve safety performance and to support a mentally healthy workplace. Ultimately, we want to work alongside organisations to see the number of workplace injuries and fatalities decrease.
The most important part of our business is you, our clients. We wish to work with you to keep your employees physically and mentally safe.
To maintain excellent product quality and a great user experience, our development team ensures we have complete oversight of our training.
We strive to continually provide an outstanding level of service throughout every interaction with our growing client base.
The Tap into Safety Founders
The Tap into Safety Founders are a husband and wife team that have worked together in the workplace safety discipline since 2003. They understand the difficulties that companies have in successfully managing workplace safety and employee mental health.
Training is a key to reducing workplace injuries and fatalities. But for training to be effective it needs to be engaging, use simple concepts and at a level that the average worker can relate to and understand. The Tap into Safety Platform is the vehicle they believe can meet these requirements.
