About Us

In the construction industry, everything has evolved due to advances in technology. As those advancements are made, daily tasks on a construction site become much simpler. So why is it that safety has not made that transition?

Our Story

In late 2013 Ryan was consulting as a functional safety engineer for an engineering firm developing real-time control systems for the oil and gas industry. He was a team lead implementing life safety systems to protect the oil extraction plants against run away processes using safe guards that are specified in international safety specifications, such as IEC61511. 

Craig was a safety manager in a the largest roofing company in Alberta. After working in the field as an industrial fire-proofer for 14 years. He realized one day that all he was really doing was traveling from site to site calling out workers that hadnt completed documentation. This means he would stop them from working and call them all into a impromptu safety meeting in order to highlight the hazards and controls. 

Craig felt this was all a cause of having a lack of information prior to arriving at site. He felt that if he knew what everyone had completed prior to arriving at site than the conversation would be much more arround re-enforcing safety as opposed to penalizing workers.

So Craig approached Ryan, knowing that he had built software for a living, to see if there was something we could put together to bridge the gap between the field and the office.

This was where SafetyTek was started. Ryan started using his Real-time control systems development background to apply it to user behaviour in order to gather documentation from the field. This resulted in our first version of the system which automatically collected field level data and stored it in a database as well as filing it into a cloud based file manager in PDF format, for archiving and distribution purposes.
