Rising Threats

Rising Threats

We are reminded every day that threats to our physical safety are becoming increasingly common, more catastrophic and less predictable.

Although emergencies often cannot be prevented, how we respond during emergencies to protect people can and must be managed.

Extreme weather events, like storms and floods are on the rise while home grown terrorism and active shooter incidents have impacted cities around the globe.

Significant obligations exist for employers under Workplace, Health and Safety (WHS) legislation to protect employees and visitors.

Concept Safety Systems is responding to an increasingly challenging environment to protect people and the legal requirement imposed on businesses to ensure that they do so with key technologies to protect the safety and security of people within the built environment.

Compliance with complex regulations in each country, which affects all employees along with the increasing need to manage risk
for every organisation.

AUSTRALIA

UNITED STATES

  • The Australian Standards (AS3745), Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 (BSFR) and Workplace Health & Safety Act 2011 (WHSA) outlines obligations to keep the occupants of their buildings safe in emergencies
  • Obligations apply to Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (“PCBU”). PCBUs have a primary duty of care to ensure workers and others are not exposed to a risk to their health and safety.
  • PCBUs are those people who i) direct or influence the work carried out by a worker, ii) engage or cause to engage a worker to carry out work iii) have management or control of a workplace
  • National Fire Code covers owners obligations on the full range of fire and life safety issues from fire protection systems and equipment and occupant safety to minimum training requirements
  • The New York and California Fire Code outlines the training frequency requirements and supplement the minimum standards set in the National Fire Protection Association Fire Code 1: Fire Code

Industry Specific Solutions

The Racing Industry

The Growing Injury and Safety Problem in the Thoroughbred, Harness and Dog Racing Industry

Scope of the Problem

The Thoroughbred, Harness and Dog Racing industry has remained the worst offender out of the 100 industries that Safe Work Australia tracks and reports on for serious injury claims, for the past decade. ‘Serious injury claims’ in Racing have been on average 5 times the average of all industries according to Safe Work Australia published statistics* for the past 10 years. Disturbingly the data shows that the injury rates for Racing has continued on a negative trajectory, year on year, with last year’s injury claims being the worst on record for the past decade compared to any other industry (10 times higher).

There is an opportunity to manage the broad set of safety challenges in Racing

The Horse and Dog industry is unique: due to its wide breath of hazards generally absent in any other workplace. Besides human issues, there are numerous hazards and dangers of animal stabling, handling and movements, associated machinery, mobile barriers, transport vehicles and others. Furthermore, other hazards and dangers involved with loose animals, chemicals, and the safety considerations associated with large crowd management in open public areas are evident. These hazards and risks can, and do, cause harm to humans and animals, and the problems existing with non-compliance of safety and obligations under the legislation are costs many millions of dollars every year and remains a persistent and growing issue for the industry.

The situation requires immediate action

No longer is it acceptable for persons involved in the racing industries to consider health and safety training as a discretionary action. Some examples of non-compliance issues are; induction and training can be piece-meal and ad-hoc, many part time casual workers and others miss induction entirely, poor record keeping, ineffective distribution and communication of work health and safety information, and lack of event based emergency management and training etc.

The bottom-line; persons involved in the racing industry require enforced attendance for Work Health and Safety (WHS) and emergency training and, if training is not completed, those employees/contractors should not be allowed to work as they are not legally compliant to do so. Health and safety, and lack of impetus by persons involved in the Thoroughbred and Harness and Dog Racing, reveal inefficiencies that can be improved upon by training and an effective technological solution.

A solution has been developed specifically for the Australian Racing Industry

Concept Safety Systems provides a unique online system that inducts employees, contractors, members and visitors with the skills and knowledge to remain safe on their time, instead of the business’s time, that meets all WH&S and Emergency Planning regulatory requirements. The system provides full transparency on compliance and exceptions, it establishes and maintains competency of all workers with automated alerts and reminders.

The Concept Safety solution has been specifically tailored to address the diverse nature of hazards that are unique to the Thoroughbred, Harness and Dog Racing industry. Typically, the system is configured within 2-4 weeks, it requires no integration or customisation, and only requires a very low level of user instruction and establishes competence through an assessment that requires a pass score. Last year over 450,000 inductions were completed here in Australia using this system from all types of industries, including our Racing industry.

Applying Innovation to Emergency Management

Our business is a technology leader in emergency management with a pipeline of innovations that will enhance Concept Safety Systems value to customers

PROJECT TANGO

  • Concept Safety Systems is one of three development partners in Australia working with Google Tango
  • Google Tango allows a tablet or smartphone to detect position and orientation relative to its environment
  • Concept Safety Systems is working with Google Tango to map the internal building environment in much the same way as Google Street View has done outside

AUGMENTED REALITY

  • To enhance the efficacy of emergency management preparedness training, Concept Safety Systems is developing Augmented Reality (AR) content
  • AR offers a high fidelity simulated training environment using clients’ own physical environment
  • With the support of AR content developers and Google Tango, Concept Safety Systems is able to “gamify” emergency response training and deliver superior training outcomes

PREVENT & RESPOND

Concept Safety Systems R&D focus is towards an integrated system that provides not only training and prevention measures but also emergency response tools. Some examples of these are:

  • Push notifications to employees phones with emergency tips on day of emergency
  • Employee count mechanisms and location systems during emergencies
  • Integration with access control
