Safe Ag Systems
Safe Ag Systems was founded in 2016 to help small farmers meet complex Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) regulations without resorting to piles of paperwork.
The cloud-based software can be set up on a desktop computer and accessed via mobile app, making it easier to develop safety policies and inductions and store training and compliance records.
The business soon attracted larger operations who saw the value in OH&S software tailored to the agriculture industry—which can face very different safety challenges than other workplace environments.
With a $500,000 grant from the Government of South Australia’s Early Commercialisation Fund in late 2019, Safe Ag Systems increased staff numbers and expanded the scope of their product to cover additional regulatory needs.
The startup has also found success in international markets, with more than 800 customers and 6000 users across Australia and New Zealand, and a commercial trial underway in the United Kingdom.
