The CodeSafe digital platform is designed to reduce the risk of injury by providing key information to employees through visual support to existing procedures using QR code technology. This approach is said to reduce the risk of misinterpretation of the written word and overcomes language and literacy barriers by allowing the employee to scan a CodeSafe QR code to view safety, environment and quality communication messages in an interactive way.

The product was originally developed with the support of both Melbourne Water and the Water Resource Alliance partners for applications in the water industry. In adopting the CodeSafe system, the Water Resources Alliance was awarded the Australian Water Association ‘Water Industry Safety Excellence’ award for 2013.

RMIT University announced in June that it is partnering with CodeSafe in a bid for research funding. The research will evaluate the effectiveness and impact of the CodeSafe system in promoting WHS in the construction industry.

The CodeSafe system combines a systematic process for: eliciting the tacit knowledge of construction workers relating to the WHS aspects of the work tasks they perform; engaging construction workers in scripting, acting and recording films to visually represent this tacit WHS knowledge; and using Quick Response (QR) code technology to make this knowledge quickly and easily available to other workers who need to access it.

The CodeSafe system enables important WHS information - such as documents, pictures, text and even video - for a specific piece of equipment, location or procedure to be delivered direct to a smartphone instantly and on demand.
