The Checkmate concept was developed in order to allow businesses to conduct regular safety audits of their plant and machinery effectively.
The major challenge facing companies or individuals required to complete safety audits is that they are typically paper-based, making it difficult to quickly and easily check that all plant and machinery have undergone regular safety testing and that they continue to remain fit for purpose.
To ensure all items are compliant requires an individual to walk around all the items that require checking and review these against paper-based audit forms. This meant that visibility of identified repair issues were, at best spasmodic, and that often, once a new week of audits was started, the issues previously identified as requiring rectification were simply left with the assumption they were being resolved. This was further complicated by audits being undertaken across multiple business divisions with no reliable method of consolidating the information, or tracking the audits. With large numbers of plant and machinery requiring safety checks the problem continues to grow and put employees and the business at severe risk.
Checkmate was specifically designed to ensure a higher quality of checks are undertaken and that all plant and machinery is compliant and continually enables a higher level of focus on safety within the workplace. Checkmate was conceived in early 2018 and since then work has been undertaken to create the business, thoroughly test the hardware out of the Globex Auckland office and develop the software created through an offshore specialist in Boston (USA).
The risks that Checkmate help businesses overcome are many.
