Where we came from

The SafetyCulture journey started with a simple question:
how do we keep people in the workplace safe?

Back in 2004, we were a small team working out of a garage in regional Australia. Our first business solution? Humble safety documents. But as technology reshaped how the world interacted, founder Luke Anear was quick to meet customers where they were.

And so, iAuditor was born, the first iteration of a digital platform that revolutionized inspections globally. It’s now the world’s largest checklist app — and that’s just the beginning.

At the heart of it, we build products for our customers; to drive their business forward and support working teams. As the world of work evolves, so do we.

Today, our technology includes sensors, issue reports, data capture, analytics, risk mitigation and award-winning mobile training. We power 600 million checks per year, approximately 50,000 lessons per day and millions of corrective actions. Our flagship products, iAuditor and EdApp, are used by over 28,000 organizations — ranging from Coles to NASA and the United Nations.

Across industries, SafetyCulture is the leading digital operations platform which helps organizations get better everyday
