The team at Platypus Environmental Services has experienced several notable benefits since adopting Safety Champion Software.

Regarding the benefits experienced since implementing Safety Champion, Amy Akers commented, “The centralised task system has been heavily utilised and quickly adopted, particularly for resolving issues handled by our maintenance team. The convenience of accessing SDSs while walking around the site, instead of having to return to the office or chem shed, has been a time-saver. Additionally, we spend less time inputting information from paper forms.”
She continued, “Overall, our experience has been excellent. We managed to roll out Safety Champion to our staff much earlier than expected, and they find it easy to use, resulting in a lot of positive feedback. The integration of Safety Champion with Employment Hero has been an added bonus, eliminating the need to duplicate staff record updates.
