UK safety management system gets financial backingPosted on 17/01/2014
A Sheffield based company has secured a cash injection from Finance Yorkshire, which will be used to roll out its management system which works to increase workplace safety.
Reset's system helps firms ensure the competency of its staff before hey begin work on site.
The system, which can be used to check the skills and training of contractors and permanent members of staff, is a great addition to other safety measure in place such as personal protective equipment (PPE).
Indeed, it can help businesses target PPE training where skills are lacking or need refreshing, and ensure the appropriate distribution of kit.
Under the Reset system, a collection of tools is available to businesses, allowing them and their staff to conform to health and safety legislation. The tools also aid firms to comply with the ever changing face of construction and design management (CDM) regulation.
The £300,000 funding, which comes via the Finance Yorkshire Seedcorn Fund, will be used to expand the Reset team, in order to market and sell the tech.
Finance Yorkshire's investment manager Graham Davies said:
"Seedcorn funding is there for early stage ventures, which we believe have the potential to become beacon companies in the region.
"Reset is proving to be an exceptionally useful solution for anyone employing third party contractors, and we believe it has fantastic growth potential."
With the tools able to be used by a number of sectors, the managing director of the firm says that particular target areas will be construction, healthcare, education and retail.
