-Safety Evolution CEO and Cofounder
Meet our founders!
Wade was the Project HSE Manager and met David in 2014 when he was hired as the HSE Lead for the drilling program.
After 2 years of working together, over a cup of coffee in Wade’s office, they found themselves discussing the challenges they and other safety professionals face on a daily basis.
David and Wade were dealing with the common issue most Safety Professionals can relate to - being stuck in their office doing paperwork and not out on-site with their workers.
The same root causes of incidents were showing up regularly. They were indicating that workers were not trained, the companies were not verifying they were competent to do the jobs, and the hazards were not recognized or documented.
This conversation turned to
What if we could create a program that had everything in it? What if companies could have a turn-key system built for them by safety professionals?
In order for this software to work, it had to be built with checks and balances designed to protect the worker. The Safety Professional would need to be able to see what their team was doing in real-time and have automation to reduce the administrative workload.
A few hours later they shook hands, agreed to build it, and Safety Evolution was born.
The excitement fuelled months of feverish mapping and planning. They now had a crystal clear vision for what a safety person needed to really create change in the workplace.
We get to see the real-world impact on workers and their safety teams every day. We are excited to be a part of your company's safety story and we are ready to roll up our sleeves to get to work for you!
Our team will be an extension of yours so
it's important you know who they are!
