A perfect portal for safety professionals

Amber, The Health and Safety Communication Platform, is a tool tailormade for innovative safety professionals looking to introduce creativity and communication trends into their workplace.

Created by a diverse team of artists, strategists, health and safety researchers, and engineers, Amber is designed to enable safety professionals to see health and safety communication through a fresh creative lens. ‘How can creativity save lives?’ you may be wondering. “We believe that by engaging workers with memorable and inspiring communication we can improve culture, build trust and receive feedback on where critical issues could be overlooked on your site,” says Lindy Scott, founder and creative director at Amber. “It is through dialogue that we can improve.”

The to-do list of a safety professional is long and admin-intensive, including a variety of tasks from risk assessments, appointment letters, reports, and investigations. “Added to this already long to-do list, we have the need for effective communication, managing a safety culture, and then finding time to make visual resources. There simply is not enough time in the day; inspirational, creative health and safety communication often falls to the bottom of the list,” Scott adds.

“Here at Amber, however, creativity and innovation are first on our list, so we built software to help safety professionals save time, save budget, and save lives.”

What makes Amber special?

Amber is the only health and safety communication software that auto brands visual safety posters and gives safety professionals access to cutting edge, ready-to-run workshops and resources through a monthly subscription.

“Resources found on Amber are inspired by Africa, design thinking, and teambuilding. The topics range from personal protective equipment to mental health to ensure that there is something relevant to every organisation and budget,” Scott points out.

Amber is inspired by ISO 45001:2018 and assists safety professionals with clauses 4, 5, and 10.

Clause 4 states that thorough understanding of the context in which an organisation operates is pivotal in establishing, maintaining, and continually improving an organisation’s occupational health and safety (OHS) management system. “This is achieved through the Context Report feature,” says Scott, while she adds that the inspiration behind Amber “was to design holistic, engaging, and thought-provoking workshops to help with Clause 5 of ISO 45001:2018 implementation to build a better culture.” She goes on to note, “Participation and consultation of workers and leadership are designed into each safety campaign.” In terms of Clause 10, Scott says, “Amber has created the place to save and track lessons and gather insights that add to the dialogue of promoting a strong culture. These lessons learned can contribute to the improvement of an organisation’s OHS management system.”

As Scott says, “Join us and over 300 safety professionals in our mission to save lives through creativity in the workplace and beyond!”
