Who are we?
01. Our values
Stay simple, fun and relevant: Be helpful.
Always listen to our partners (Customers, suppliers, institutions, ...).
Protect the personal data of employees.
Create networks of security actors at all levels.
02. The genesis of IBISA
It was within the company ECOBLAST (a sandblasting company in New Caledonia) that the idea for the "Safety@Work" application was born. ECOBLAST's founding manager, Luc SORLIN, who is responsible for security at this company, was looking for an IT solution to rely on for security management.
While there were several IT solutions on the market, none met Luc's expectations for simplicity and usefulness for his security employees on the ground.
Unable to find a suitable product, he created the company IBISA (I Believe In SAfety) and raised funds to develop its perfect tool for security.
03. The founding principle with our first application: safety@work
While the usual applications focus their architecture around occupational risk assessment (see box), "Safety @Work" innovates by putting the action plan at the heart of the tool.
The plan of action, a real driver of progress, aims to transform problems into solutions.
Occupational risk assessment is a legal requirement to identify hazards and to identify the risks to which an establishment's employees are exposed, in order to place prevention actions
The challenge for a company is to have the tools to identify or anticipate problems as early as possible.
Of course, prior risk assessment plays a fundamental role in this exercise but it cannot be the only strategy.
"Safety @Work" offers an even more relevant tool than prior risk assessment and "reporting".
The tool allows everyone to trace both potential and actual risks that could be benign requiring just a simple remark, through to non-urgent risks, urgent dangers, near accidents and actual incidents.
This sets up for a domino effect where reducing risky behaviour reduces accidents, and systems can be adapted based on these great results to shape and limit risky behaviour further.
Risk assessment and reporting are two major tools for identifying problems, but they are not the only ones. "Safety @Work" also allows for security talks, pre start meetings, site visits, procedures, equipment control, etc.
04. Where are we, where are we going?
The current version of the "Safety@Work" application is only the start of a complete and powerful tool for managing security in the enterprise. It is constantly developing. Indeed, a team of programmers is assigned full time to the platform's development.
We have roadmap and are excited to see where this application will be in another year. However, we are listening to our partners and will be careful to integrate all observations or remarks to enrich this tool even further.
