08 Aug Gemstar And Tap Into Safety Today Announce A New Strategic Partnership To ‘TAP’ Into Asia

Wednesday 8th August 2018, Perth, Western Australia. Gemstar and Tap into Safety today announce a new partnership that will see Award-winning Western-Australia education and training tech company, Tap into Safety, further expand its growing global footprint, now into Asia.

Gemstar, a market access and growth partner in Asia for fast growth Australian companies, recently opened an Innovation Centre of Excellence in Perth creating a direct line of access for Western Australian companies into Asia through the Gemstar’s Singapore flagship Innovation Centre and solid presence in the region.

Together Tap into Safety and Gemstar aim to reduce increasing workplace safety incidences in Singapore and in other parts of Asia, especially in countries that have a foreign workforce where safety training isn’t always a priority or understood.

Tap into Safety’s specialised training software, ‘Hazard Insight’, equips businesses with in-depth gap-analyses of hazard perception and risk assessment within their workforce so they can effectively direct safety training towards early intervention and avoid costly workplace incidents.

Tap into Safety’s Founder and CEO Dr Susanne Bahn, says, “We see this partnership as a highly important step in our move into the Asian market. There are a large number of construction companies operating in the region and our expertise with the Australian market in this sector, together with what we have learnt by working closely with clients in this sector, can be translated into the Asian market. Australia has a high level of safety on their construction sites and we feel we have much to offer. Gemstar have a terrific presence in Asia and are highly respected and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”

Gemstar’s Founder and CEO, Gemma Manning, says, “We are delighted to partner with Tap into Safety and unearth their safety training platform in Asia. With Singapore lagging behind Australia and the United Kingdom in its safety record, there is an urgent need for a platform like Tap into Safety as an early intervention mechanism to help prevent growing casualty rates in industries like construction, manufacturing and transportation”.

The companies plan to work closely with organisations in Asia over the next 12 months to mobilise the Hazard Insight platform and start measuring the positive impact across multiple sectors. ~ ENDS
