QuickSafety to launch electrical safety app nationally
QuickSafety has raised over $400,000 in seed funding ahead of the national launch of its electrical safety compliance software.
It’s a legal requirement to conduct electrical safety testing and compliance assessments, but the tests are rarely validated for accuracy, according to QuickSafety founder Kurt Alexander, who has 37 years of industry experience. In its own analysis, QuickSafety discovered that 42% of tests for electrical compliance were inaccurate and not in accordance with AS/NZS 3000 Standards. These tests are usually lodged as paper-based forms and are time consuming. This results in significant safety risks for end users and electricians and presents legal risks.
QuickSafety’s software sends safety alerts to electricians in real time and instantly conducts compliance assessments.
The company aims to officially launch the app across Australia in three months, with plans to expand globally in the future. It plans to incorporate blockchain at the end of this year to provide immutable data records. It is also working with insurance service providers about the impact this best practice compliance will have on insurance premiums.
QuickSafety recently completed BlueChilli’s accelerator program. Alexander said that the program gave him the start-up support, confidence and technical expertise to gain traction quickly and efficiently.
