Safety and Mental Health: September Wrap-Up

safest companies

September saw the Tap into Safety team, heads down, completing the safety and mental health content builds for existing clients. We have also been busy keeping up with increased inquiries and presenting to new clients!

New Clients and Key Achievements

  • September has seen the continued fast pace for Tap into Safety, with new clients,  including international clients, coming on board. The team attended their sites to taking panoramic photographs for the latest safety training content. Clients are really focussing on workplace safety and mental health in the workplace and seeking innovative ways to revitalise their safety inductions to improve performance and reduce injuries.
  • Last month, we advised that we have entered a re-seller partnership arrangement with the mighty SAI Global and a formal announcement was made about the new global distribution of our safety and mental health solutions. If you are already an SAI Global client, please ask them about our solutions as we can integrate with their EHS Safety Platform to offer a single access portal.
  • Pre-built content is now available for construction and civil construction businesses. Please take a look at our website for more details.
  • October is National Safe Work Month – see the link to free tools and materials.

Out and About on Client Sites

This month the Tap into Safety team made the significantly long trek, including three flights there and back, to Barrick Gold’s, Lumwana Copper Mine in Zambia. This was an extremely interesting photo-shoot over four days to gather panoramic and photographic content across four areas of their business: maintenance workshop, mining, haul road and processing.

Setting up each shoot was a mammoth task of planning and coordination by the Lumwana staff, and in particular, John Covill who coordinated with the safety managers, and the Tap into Safety team. We believe their main haul road has to be one of the busiest on the planet, servicing the third largest copper mine in the world.

Taking photographs in that environment was a significant achievement for the Tap into Safety team and our efforts were acknowledged by one of their Supervisors who said:

‘Thank-you for coming to my country to help keep me and my people safe. Please pass on my thanks and best wishes to all the Tap into Safety Team.’

Tap into Safety – designers working hard!

Congratulations to our team of designers at Tap into Safety! Special thanks goes to Lachlan Seddon for the outstanding work he has achieved this month. Lachlan has not only been working hard on the first two modules for the FMG maintenance workshops, but he has also been producing customised animations to enhance the safety training software to make the training modules more fun and varied.

Furthermore Lachie’s photoshop skills have really been put to the test across training modules for Asplundh Tree Expert, Penske Power Systems and Master Builders Association WA.

The next task is to take the photographic content from the Barrick Gold, Lumwana Copper Mine shoot and turn the ugly duckling (raw material) into a swan!

Lachlan makes a difference to workplace safety and mental health performance improvements in organisations by reducing workplace injury and encouraging people to reach out and seek help when their mental health is in decline. He demonstrates our company values of ‘client first’ and ‘quality content’. We are proud to have him on the team!
