EHS professionals are caring, committed people who work hard every day to ensure that their co-workers go home safe and sound.
At Safeopedia, we think safety professionals are unsung superheroes in many workplaces. We aim to support and celebrate these professionals and the work they do by providing easy access to occupational health and safety information, and by reinforcing safe work practices.
Safety standards, best practices, innovation and legislation are constantly changing. There are thousands of formal and informal safety committees, dozens of safety certifications and thousands of courses.
How do EHS professionals get the information they need quickly and easily? How can they spend less time behind the desk and more time in the field keeping people safe? We aim to be the simple resource safety professionals turn to for all things safety.
Safety officers, first responders, environmental engineers and others working in environmental health and safety are our inspiration! We know how many challenges they face and how difficult it can be to keep pace with quickly evolving legislation and standards.
The Impossible Dream
We aim to create the ultimate resource for the EHS industry. At Safeopedia, we believe that environmental health & safety information should be in the public domain for anyone and everyone who truly wants to learn, share, collaborate and make the world a better - and safer - place. We are committed to providing free environmental health & safety education and information to the industry and the public at large.
The Safeopedia Family
We are grateful for our partners, who also share our vision and have contributed their valuable time and expertise to help make Safeopedia an educational hub for safety professionals. They include:
Scott Cuthbert - Co-founder Safeopedia.com.
While working in the energy industry Scott realized how important safety is but also noticed how splintered safety is across the industry. As a technology guy with the desire to help improve the culture of health and safety Scott realized he could help the industry help itself by creating a platform for individuals, companies, associations, safety professions, and suppliers, to collaborate across this vast and widely divers industry.
Jamie Young - Co-founder Safeopedia.com.
Having spent the last 20+ years in the construction industry, I've seen my fair share of things that didn't need to happen. I'm not a Safety Expert but firmly believe that by working together, we can spread the best industry knowledge and experience throughout the world. Can we constantly improve best practices and safety culture through open experience sharing, and ultimately prevent more incidents and save more lives? I believe we can. Working together, let's improve Safety to the maximum level.
I support and recognize the valuable contribution made by EHS professionals, who are often under valued. Our Mission is to create the single most comprehensive Environmental Health & Safety resource for safety minded professionals globally.
All accidents are preventable so let's work together to improve the culture of public and workplace safety for everyone. Safety starts with you! Join the movement!
The more we work together to harness the collective genius of the industry, the more valuable Safeopedia will become. Join the movement today and help us make the world a safer place.
