RiskTalk Story

After working in the field for over a decade, RiskTalk Co-Founder Stuart saw firsthand the shortcomings of traditional safety practices.
And with research showing these methods reinforce inefficiency and complacency, as well as being disengaging for the worker, he knew there had to be a better way.
Recognising the frustrations for both workers and management, as well as a vital need to tap into the experience and on the ground insights of workers, the idea for RiskTalk was born.
Following countless product iterations, customer interviews, and a strong focus on human-centred design, RiskTalk is leading the way in safety innovation and continues to evolve into the world's largest voice safety library.
