Donesafe was founded by Matthew Browne and Matthew Knee, who are both successful business owners looking for a better way to manage workplace health and safety. Matthew Knee ran a large workforce for whom English was a second language, which needed a solution that was easy-to-use, avoiding technical jargon. Matthew Browne was already using a safety system that was running successfully, but paper-based; which brings with it a huge administrative time and money drain. The vision was to find a technology-driven solution that would enable him to retain his tried and tested processes, adding the benefits of technology and reporting. The market at the time was not able to solve each of their problems. Donesafe is a highly adaptable cloud-based platform that is simple for all workers to use. Six years on from its conception, Donesafe provides solutions for over 400+ organizations from sole traders to huge household brands; McDonald’s, Vodafone, and IAG who are now reaping the benefits of a cloud-based solution.
Donesafe is a cloud-based safety, compliance, quality, and wellness solution designed to make every workplace safer. The functionalities within Donesafe allows organizations to manage requirements across Health, Safety, Quality, and Environmental in the one platform. Donesafe’s mobile-first technology, available on any device, helps organizations support an entire workforce, wherever they may be. Donesafe allows workers to capture information and instantly alert management while initiating notifications and actions to resolve issues quickly.

Quality, mental health, and wellbeing programs are vital to ensure the workplace is all-around safe whilst supporting employees with the right information at the right time. There are a number of solutions on the marketplace that offer similar functionalities, but what sets Donesafe apart from the competition is that it enables all workers to use the system and capture information; rather than solely admin users within an organization. Encouraging a culture where safety is prioritized and discussed throughout an organization is at Donsafe’s core.
