About SafetyCulture About SafetyCulture

Our Story

After witnessing the tragedy of workplace incidents as a private investigator, our founder Luke Anear went on to recruit a team to help him develop a mobile solution for safety in the workplace. SafetyCulture was originally founded in 2004 from Luke’s garage. As it started gaining momentum and was adopted by a wider range of customers, SafetyCulture graduated into an office space in Townsville, Australia. The team has since expanded across the globe with additional offices in Sydney, Kansas City and Manchester.

Our flagship product, SafetyCulture iAuditor, simplifies the auditing process by making it easy for anyone to effectively manage safety and quality from a mobile device. Frontline workers are empowered to report issues quickly to prevent an incident due to inefficiency and limited visibility. Word of mouth about SafetyCulture iAuditor and the growing industry movement toward safer, data-driven workplaces have added momentum to our growth.

Today, SafetyCulture iAuditor is the most used checklist inspection app in the world. It’s currently used in over 80 countries to perform millions of inspections.
