What’s our story?

Back in 2004, we were a small team working out of a garage in regional Australia. Our first business solution? Humble safety documents. But as technology reshaped how the world interacted, founder Luke Anear was quick to meet customers where they were.

And so, SafetyCulture (iAuditor) was born, the first iteration of a digital platform that revolutionized inspections globally. It’s now the world’s largest checklist app — and that’s just the beginning.

Today, our technology includes sensors, issue reports, data capture, analytics, risk mitigation and award-winning mobile training. We power 600 million checks per year, approximately 70,000 lessons per day and millions of corrective actions. Our flagship products, SafetyCulture (iAuditor) and EdApp, are used by over 70,000 organizations — ranging from Coles to NASA and the United Nations.

Across industries, SafetyCulture supports businesses around the world in doing their best work everyday.
