Australian MADE Digital Safety Online Store for Safety

In a revolutionary act of modern-day entrepreneurialism Aussie company B.E.R.T is opening an online store, what is it selling? Safety!

The very latest tech is rolling out from the BERT online store this month, replacing paper, apps, and downloads in an industry first.

B.E.R.T (Business Enterprise Risk Technology) is creating quite a stir with their fresh approach to delivering customized safety and risk tech solutions to businesses. The biggest appeal? Affordability, simplicity, and security.

“It is evident from our research out on the field talking to farmers, primary producers, truck drivers and NFP’s- they do not have extra time and resources. Often people are squeezed in a corner to comply. If I am an owner operator truck driver, I have been on the road for hours; I have a million things to do and think about, am I going to feel like downloading an app, swiping, fixing, altering, filling in forms and spaces to create a solution? No way. I want to tap and go with a quick effective yet SECURE tool. If I want to talk to someone, I don’t get some chatbot or an email I speak to an actual person. The next step in our business evolution was an online store where clients can buy and use right away.”

With the impending National changes to the Truck Industry, the products couldn’t come at a better time.

Mike Wood, head of LATUS, Logistics Risk Specialists is an educator on compliance. “Each business must have an SMS, Safety Management System in place by mid-2018. We are witnessing a lot of distress and confusion in the transport industry over the new legislation involving the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) law. The Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) prescribes certain requirements and obligations to ensure compliance and safety for all parties in the transport supply chain. This means that anyone who influences the transport activity is responsible for safety on the road. The penalties are harsh and high; we encourage anyone in this industry, or any workplace industry to be aware of legislation and use the Digital Tools available to them!  They can comply without the stress and heartache that compliance litigation can impose.”

The online store couldn’t come at a better time. Recently cited by Workplace Victoria as an exciting development in Safety and Risk Management, BERT is pleased to be able to be of service to those in need of assistance to transform their business space. The first release of products will include SWMS (Safe Work Method Statements) and Pre- Start Checks for everything from trucks to tractors and chainsaws.

The suite of products was rolled out earlier this year in the Gannawarra Shire in Northern Victoria.

Col Shepard, Acting Manager of Operation Works at Gannawarra says;

“We went from paper-based reporting that was generic and went with this model to help increase safety and create a better system. Now it is fully customized, easier to use and makes more sense to employees. When compared to some other tech-based systems out there, we found this one to be more affordable and to be honest; you get someone on the end of the phone, the backup service and relationship is better. It is more relevant and cohesive.”
