Safe365 and International Institute of Risk & Safety Management (IIRSM) are delighted to announce a new, joint partnership.


As part of this, Safe365 is sponsoring the Institute’s Emerging Risk Leaders (ERL) initiative. The ERL network aims to support the professional development of future leaders in risk management, and to foster social connections to help them develop both professionally and personally.


Nathan Hight, Co-Founder and Director of Safe365 says: “Safe365 is all about stimulating innovative thinking and improved leadership in risk and safety management. So we applaud the IIRSM for bringing the Emerging Risk Leaders Network to life, ensuring the next generation of industry leaders are enabled and set up for success. It's a concept totally aligned to Safe365’s vision, purpose and values.”


Phillip Pearson, CEO of IIRSM says: “Safe365 is an award winning safety tech company that has developed innovative software that allows organisations to assess, improve and monitor their health, safety and well being risk management capability, culture, performance and engagement. We thank the Safe365 team for their support of IIRSM and for sharing our vision of the critical importance in investing in developing tomorrow’s risk leaders, today.” 


In addition to a financial investment, Safe365 will also provide the ERL network with access to Safe365’s dataset of over 100M safety maturity benchmarking data points and expertise to support the projects the network is undertaking. 


“We can see firsthand the performance of our clients who enjoy excellent risk and safety leadership within their business, beyond the technical competencies of the profession. Any opportunity to equip our emerging risk leaders with greater skills, confidence and competence to work effectively with Boards, C-Suites and senior business people, the better - both in terms of safety and business performance outcomes” says Hight.
