Safety software providers integrate for better service

Safety software providers Vault Intelligence and Tap into Safety have integrated to provide mental health and hazard perception training.

Vault customers will now be able to access Tap into Safety’s Hazard Insight tool, which offers 360° panoramic gamified hazard perception training to gain insight into safety knowledge gaps.

Vault is also integrating with Tap into Safety’s All of Me software. This tool was built in response to climbing suicide rates and a growing need for effective solutions for businesses managing mental health.

It provides animated scenario-based training, mental health assistance at the click of a button, and monitoring of stress, anxiety and depression levels. The analytics produced draw comparisons between groups to identify and address early indicators of rising mental health decline before they affect performance.

“This is an exciting step that introduces some very important new capabilities into the Vault mix,” said Dave Moylan, Vault founder and CEO.

“Having access to Tap into Safety’s amazing gamified scenario training will really improve what Vault can offer in terms of risk management training. All of Me is really a standout in terms of workplace mental health intervention. Our existing products include general mental health reporting, but giving our customers access to the entire All of Me solution will take it to another level, with a strong focus on early intervention.”

According to a 2014 PwC report, every $1 an organisation spends on workplace mental health initiatives can generate $2.30. Dr Susanne Bahn, co-founder and CEO of Tap into Safety, said organisations lack information about people in mental health decline. Only 3–5% of people seek mental health support at work and most organisations are concerned they don’t have the systems or supportive culture in place to manage mental health issues.

“Effective mental health initiatives have proven positive benefits for organisations. All of Me trains staff to know what and what not to do in common workplace situations that can impact negatively on mental health. Having access to detailed reporting data softens barriers and encourages engagement and helps change a workplace’s culture with respect to mental health,” Bahn said.
