StaySafe are delighted to announce our partnership with mobile security experts, Secure Mobility to monitor and protect vulnerable workers across New Zealand.
The partnership comes ahead of new health and safety legislation which will come into force across New Zealand on the 4th April 2016. The new Health and Safety at Work Act will hold businesses legally accountable for reducing workplace risk and fulfilling their duty of care to employees.
In partnering with StaySafe, Secure Mobility are able to offer employers in New Zealand a powerful and accurate tool for monitoring employee safety at all times, using just their smartphone or tablet.
The new Health and Safety reform bill aims to reduce New Zealand’s workplace injury and death toll 25% by 2020. Businesses will be required to act in reducing workplace harm by focusing on managing risk and encouraging worker engagement and participation. As the StaySafe App requires little training and is easy to use, it can be easily integrated into an existing business culture before the changes come into force.

Don Cameron, CEO, StaySafe adds; “StaySafe turns any smart device into a safety tool and can be up and running within 24 hours, making it an attractive and scalable solution for any business.
