Could you tell us about your company?
Safetyboss is a health and safety consultancy and training provider with a difference, helping organisations to meet legal requirements, lower costs and make work a safer place.
Our approach is a simple one – to operate in the best interests of our clients. As a result we have earned the trust of some of the largest organisations in the UK, who now use Safetyboss as a valued extension of their health and safety team.
Safetyboss provides a wide range of health and safety consultancy services and training courses to some of the largest organisations in the UK.
What challenges did your business face before accessing the funding?
We wanted to improve the interactivity of our online health and safety training to give our end-users a more immersive visual experience, and to create real-life examples of health and safety in the workplace that they could then use in their everyday working life.
360 video was an ideal avenue to implement into our training courses, and we needed professional advice and assistance to create suitable content to use.
What funding did you access as part of Innovation Bridge?
20 hours of Academic Expertise.
How has the funding benefited your business and would you recommend it to other businesses?
UOS provided fantastic, professional guidance and support to enable us to create in-house, practical 360 videos to improve the interactivity of our health and safety courses. They went above and beyond to provide us with tailored advice, dedicated time to focus on our project and even access to equipment to create the content ourselves.
