The Project

Did you know that in 2012 Canberra suffered three workplace deaths in just four months? The building industry necessarily faces real risks at construction sites. Although there is good safety legislation in place to help address these risks, some of it comes with a lot of paperwork.

Enter EasySWMS! Through the vision of entrepreneurs Russell Boyd and Sue Davidson, this system was conceived to make the paperwork for writing Safe Work Method Statements a breeze. With less time doing paperwork there’s more time to focus on the real safety issues at hand.

Result

EasySWMS (with the support of the ACT Government) engaged Agile Digital to develop a “smart” tablet-based app to realise their goal of “less paperwork and safer workplaces”. In addition to Android and iPad apps, Agile Digital developed a back-end administration platform using Scala and Play technology that allows EasySWMS staff to manage their system with a minimum of hassle.
