About Safety Reports

How We Got Started

Safety Reports was founded in 2011 by Chet Slump and Steve Polich, CSP. At the time, Chet owned a 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 their discussions, Steve mentioned what a long week it had been traveling across Nebraska conducting safety inspections and then having to work late in the evening to type 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 life.

With Chet’s 15+ years of experience building apps and Steve’s knowledge gained with over 12 years conducting audits for various industries, 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 they were done, they built a custom app solution with an off-the-shelf price tag that’s appealing to many independent safety consultants and larger organizations.

Over the past decade, we’ve grown our product as an industry leader in the workplace safety technology market, in large part thanks to word-of-mouth referrals. 

Safety-Reports was acquired by Align Technologies (formerly ToolWatch) in 2022. We specialize in building and maintaining mobile safety solutions for all types of industries, including general, construction, consulting, and insurance. Our safety apps are valuable tools for Loss Control Representatives in the Insurance Industry and Safety Consultants who provide third-party services.  

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to build “simple” safety apps to minimize the learning curve for your employees and maximize user adoption. We know that if the app is too difficult to use, our customers will not fully realize the benefits of a mobile safety solution. Keeping our app interface simple helps our customers overcome this challenge.

The operational insights captured are complete and meaningful. Our customers use this data to drive safety improvements company-wide. Plus, knowing that the data collected using our applications help make workplaces safer and more compliant matters a great deal to our team.

Our team delivers reliable and timely customer service and support. We value the relationships we build with our subscribers. See what our customers say.
