Safety app aids workplace safety after COVID
Two entrepreneurs, Adam Civval and Jonny Gray, have developed the Work Wallet app, which is helping businesses protect workers returning to normal working post-COVID.
The pair developed the app for the construction, rail and manufacturing industries to keep contractors and workers safe in the workplace, and they have witnessed a fivefold increase in app users as workplaces become fully operational following the easing of Covid pandemic restrictions. Work Wallet monitors work permits, safety audits, briefings, accident reports and risk assessments. The app also provides health and safety inductions for workers and contractors.
The app has been designed to ensure it is easy to use. Many businesses use a paper-based system for health and safety, but they are now looking for a more efficient and easier digital system, which Work Wallet provides. The software gathers the essential data on which to base health and safety decisions.
Work Wallet is targeted at high-risk industries, like construction, where a large amount of information needs to be gathered when applying for permits. For instance, business owners need up-to-date information on the best PPE (personal protection equipment) to use that minimises accident risks and work-related illnesses.
According to Business Live, co-founder Gray said:
“We are delighted that Work Wallet has seen such big success in the past 12 months – we have some new contracts in the pipeline and the future is certainly looking bright.”
Work Wallet operates in many languages, so there is no language barrier for companies operating in multiple countries.
