Work from home mobile app: free for six months

As working from home becomes the new norm in Australia and across the world, work health and safety software company Safe365 has announced that its smartphone app and performance console will be freely available for the next six months to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on their starter plans. The company has put this offer in place to support remote ways of working during the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.

This offer comes with no obligation to buy, and as an additional support measure, Safe365 has also unbundled the normal five full-time equivalent (RTE) smartphone connections requirement, increasing this to 200 FTE. “That means businesses with <200 staff that need a digital solution to support them through working from home set-up can access this at no cost for 6 months,” Safe365 said.

Those SMEs who take part in the offer will have access to all features of the Safe365 smartphone app, including: culture and engagement surveys, incident/event reporting, risk and hazard reporting, and a range of custom checklists. One of the checklists that is available to users as part of this offer is the ‘Working from home set up checklist’. Safe365 advises that while working from home is nothing new for larger corporate entities, setting up such an arrangement is a new experience for approximately 80% of SMEs.

“We appreciate we are a very small part of a very complex suite of solutions relating to COVID-19,” the company said in announcing the offer, “but we hope that in a small but meaningful way, this offer for SMEs out there — in any country — will provide a little extra support to ensure you stay connected to your team and keep them healthy and safe while working remotely.”
