Shield Safety Group

Shield Safety Group is one of the leading providers of Food, Fire and Health & Safety software, specialising in the development of risk management SaaS systems and was recently ranked No. 30 in the Northern Tech 100 league table. Legal obligations surrounding safety and consequential civil claims mean that organisations are under increased pressure to meet regulations and maintain high standards.

Compliance Centre, their cloud-based safety software, is an integral part in delivering the company ethos -`We believe in making safety simple´. It enables storage and management of vital information in one central location with an overall real-time risk status. With the largest team of EHPs in the UK, Shield Safety Group witnesses first-hand the struggles businesses face in managing compliance. This has enabled Compliance Centre’s functionality to be built around a wide array of business needs, with the aim of simplifying the complete process.

Many companies use safety software that isn’t future-proof and operates independently of other software, causing data silos. Through extracting data and integrating with existing systems, Compliance Centre helps businesses comply with policy, risk assessment and other risk and safety management needs.

Innovation and technology are at the heart of everything Shield Safety do. The SaaS system is the only software that calculates a real-time risk status across a whole organisation, depicted by a user-friendly status indicator, to improve overall visibility. Last year they won the Lion’s Lair Award for Innovation at the Health & Safety Event and were named Technology Supplier of the Year at The Grocer Gold Awards 2017.

Compliance Centre modules include Audit, Fire Risk Assessment, Accident & Incident Management, Checklists, Document & Policy storage and renewal and Training Record Management, enabling businesses to easily manage and improve every aspect of compliance.

Compliance Centre transforms the way businesses work, enabling records to be updated and compliance to be managed across multiple locations. Acting as a safety system, it adds value to a business and makes sense of all compliance information. Levels of compliance are increased, operating costs are reduced, efficiency is improved and critical documentation is stored at the click of a button. Real-time reporting allows safety progress to be tracked and monitored to improve transparency, sales, profitability, effectiveness and safety culture.

The company’s vision is to provide Food, Fire and Health & Safety software to every business in the UK. Shield Safety now has over 128 employees as a result of the driving force behind Compliance Centre. Shield Safety has a 98% retention rate due to customer satisfaction on the consistent performance of services. The product is continually evolving to suit customer requirements, the current product roadmap includes introduction of a dedicated Risk Assessment module, integration with eLearning providers, globalisation capability for language support and the utilising the vital data captured to develop unique predictive analytics amongst further innovations.
