How it Started
Safety-Reports was founded in November 2011 by Chet Slump and Steve Polich, CSP. At the time, Chet owned his own company that designed and built mobile apps for the Ag Industry and Steve worked in the insurance industry as a Loss Control Consultant. One morning in the Spring of 2011, Steve and Chet met at a local coffee house in Omaha, NE and during the course of their discussions, Steve happened to mention what a long week it was traveling across Nebraska doing safety inspections and then working late into the night typing up his reports. Steve, half-jokingly said, “wouldn’t it be nice if there was an app for that”. Chet, somewhat surprised that there wasn’t, said “draw it up and let’s build it”. And that’s how Safety-Reports came to be.
With Chet’s 15+ years experience building apps and Steve’s knowledge accumulated over 12 years conducting safety audits for various industry groups, the two rolled up their sleeves and started building an inspection app that’s not only comprehensive and simple to use, but also affordable. By the time we were done, we built a “custom app solution” with an “off-the-shelf” price tag. that’s appealing to many industry groups.
Over the past few years we’ve grown our company into one of the industry leaders in the inspection app market, in large part due to word-of-mouth referrals. We’ve also figured out that the best way to retain business is by providing service and support that is second to none! If you’re looking for a mobile inspection app, you’ll find that with Safety-Reports, you’re not just subscribing to a solution, but you’re also partnering with a company that will put your needs first!
