iAuditor, SafetyCulture’s flagship workplace safety inspection app, is designed to simplify the auditing process, making it easy for field employees to monitor and manage safety and quality inspections from a mobile device. In addition to the availability of more than 100,000 checklists, iAuditor enables teams to collect consistent data, identify failed areas and standardize operations, providing much-need visibility to quickly problem-solve and maintain a safe work environment.

The arrival of COVID-19 has resulted in a dramatic spike in safety inspections, from 600 million checks per year globally, to 75,000 checks per day.

All workplaces are high-risk in a pandemic. The only way to get through this period is to strictly follow guidelines and empower teams to respond through an early warning system,” said Bob Butler, General Manager at SafetyCulture.“HR departments need real-time data to tackle the additional demands COVID-19 presents and infrequent workplace audits just aren’t cutting it. With iAuditor, HR managers will have access to the information they need—in real time—to keep everyone safe.”

“Whether you’re an employer, worker or customer who walks into a workplace—even if just for a minute—safety, understandably, is top of mind,” said Ashley Miller, SHRM Director of Digital Products and Services. “The essence of HR is people: Protecting the safety and well-being of all employees as well as customers. This technology empowers employers to proactively ramp up safety and security measures and bring peace of mind to all in the process.”

SafetyCulture iAuditor checklists can be updated in seconds and instantly deployed to an entire workforce, especially timely with public safety information constantly updated and compliance critical. More than 26,000 companies around the world are already using the iAuditor app, including leading businesses in hospitality services, manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, retail, education, and government sectors. In August, iAuditor was announced as ‘Best SaaS (Software as a Service) for Health and Safety or Risk Management’ in the international 2020 SaaS Awards, which celebrate excellence in software.
