Q-Safe was first introduced to South Africa in 2015. A tiny version of what it is now. Q-Safe gained its strength and content from its users – individual company users and health and safety professionals.
The content has grown as a result of sharing of information and requests from clients for additional features.
The Health and Safety Act and its regulations tell us what the law requires. Common practice tells us what is required for a safety file and how it should be presented. The many thousands of safety files that have been built using Q-Safe have tested the market and assisted the developers in learning what could be added to make Q-Safe stronger and more versatile.
May 2023 introduced a newly structured Q-Safe, which amongst other features, includes a new indexing system, which allows the user to build the content to a client’s requirement.
Q-Safe is part of Zardocs Compliance, which is sold throughout the world.
2023 Index System
This became a top request from users as a result of site safety officers insisting that contractors supply their files with an indexing system that matches their own. This helps them with auditing documents supplied.
Desktop or Online?
The Q-Safe desktop version is perfect for a single user, single company. If you are a health and safety specialist managing the safety documentation for a range of clients, you need the PRO version.
If you are a Mac user, due to high development costs, and low volumes in South Africa, Q-Safe is only available as an online browser-based option.
If you need to access the data from multiple locations or multiple users accessing and updating the information, you will need an online option. The data is stored on a cloud server, which means it can be accessed from any computer connected to the internet. Call us for more information on these options.
