UK Enterprise Awards 2021

239 | UK Enterprise Awards 2021 Best Health & Safety Management App 2021: The Compliance Genie Be-Safe Technologies Ltd (Be-Safe) is an innovative technology company that offers an all-in-one health and safety app – The Compliance Genie - for businesses of any size and in any industry. The cloud-based solution is available on the Google Play and Apple App stores and works on smartphones, iPads and desktops. A group of professionals with over 150 years’ experience in technology, app creation and the health and safety industry, the team at Be- Safe have combined their expertise to produce something that is both state-of-the-art and intuitive to use, as well as something that helps companies become, and then stay, safe, secure and compliant. The Compliance Genie app works in real time and can be used on site, on the go or in the office, and by contractors as well as employees. There are several key features and benefits of the app, including being able to record time and attendance so as to know who is on site and when they got there, as well as being able to capture photos at point of sign in and GPS co-ordinates. The app makes vital Point of Work Assessments simple; captures crucial accident and incident statistics; provides induction videos and documents; can create and customise safety audits; manage equipment regulation and compliance; and remotely deploy documents to teams. In short, it can provide everything needed to ensure a company’s health and safety compliance. Be-Safe has customers in a variety of industries, such as construction, roofing, and manufacturing, as well as retail, utilities and the service industry and it accrues different customers and industries all the time. “The intention when we developed the app was to bring together all the functionality that a company needed to digitise its health and safety processes into one place,” explains CEO Graham Pollard. “We believe that this aspect of The Compliance Genie is one of its key selling propositions as well as the ease with which it can be set up and the flexibility within the platform. Another feature that is proving very popular with our customers is the innovative use of QR codes for anything from signing in or out to document retrieval too.” Many of Be-Safe’s customers were previously using pen and paper and some were using a mixture of solutions. The Compliance Genie has significantly reduced customers’ time and cost to administer their health and safety systems, as well as helped to make them more compliant. From an operational and development perspective, Covid did not affect the business. The Compliance Genie is a cloud-based service that can be accessed from anywhere, so the lockdown and Covid-19 situation didn’t really impact the development or delivery of the service. “In truth, this has worked extremely well, and our customers and prospective customers, like us, have adjusted to the Covid environment well,” elaborates Graham. “We have obviously not visited our customers and potential customers for some months, but we were still able to deliver what they wanted and needed remotely: this is one of the benefits of delivering services in the cloud.” Having recently being awarded the prestigious title of Best Health & Safety Management App 2021 for The Compliance Genie, it appears that the world is Be-Safe’s oyster, and there is a bright future ahead. There is still a very significant roadmap of development for the app and the team at Be-Safe strives to ensure that it is always on top of health and safety specific requirements as well as ensuring that its technology and delivery systems are the best. In addition, Be-Safe will be adding functionality to enhance its API offering, launching a new dashboard environment, and enriching its reporting functionality and adding eLearning videos within the platform too. “One of the crucial and intrinsic aspects of the Genie is that is constantly evolving – as we improve its speed and efficacy – and also as we add significant new features that are often suggested or requested by our customers as well as things we had always planned to introduce,” concludes Graham.
