Alexandra Palace signs up for Notify safety platform

The world-famous London entertainment venue, Alexandra Palace, has become the latest client to use Notify’s health and safety app-based reporting platform.

The platform, which has been developed by the North-East England technology business allows companies to log, report and manage near misses in any location.

It also provides real-time visibility and the ability to abolish paper-based documents and processes.

“Introducing Notify has transformed the way we report and act on near-misses and accidents at Alexandra Palace, allowing us to gather learnings and make changes quickly, for the benefit of our 600,000 annual visitors and members of staff,” said the venue’s Head of Health and Safety, Graeme Timms.

“We run a varied events calendar across the year, from concerts from the likes of Rudimental and New Order, to the ice rink and skate park, to open-air cinema events and a regular farmer’s market, along with many others, with each posing unique health and safety risks,” he added.

“The data we’ve been able to collect has started to give some great insights with regard to accident causes and frequency relating to each unique event, as well as solving our GDPR-compliance challenges, thanks to the tight security functions built into the system.”

In addition to the news of commencing work with Alexandra Palace, Notify’s chief executive, Duncan Davies, said additional features are being added to the platform, which will automatically be available to clients in the next month.

“One topic our clients are increasingly concerned with is employee engagement, which is a critical route to compliance. In response, we are launching automated communications that will thank users for taking the time to log a report, and update them once an investigation has been completed,” said Mr Davies.

“This will help to highlight to staff how seriously the organisation takes their health and wellbeing in the workplace, and will undoubtedly increase trust and engagement in the processes they’re asked to adhere to.”
