Back in 2007, two tradies decided there was a time and place for ‘she’ll be right’ – and it wasn’t on the construction site.

A new approach and attitude towards health and safety on-site was needed. Something simple that tradies could get on board with.

HazardCo was born.


Our aim has always been to give our customers in the construction industry the systems and advice they need to make their job safer and easier to do. Our digital tools do exactly that. It’s what you need, when you need it… all from your back pocket!

At HazardCo, we care about helping you focus on what matters – getting the job done and making sure everyone makes it home safely at the end of the day. We get it, the old ways suck. Mountains of paperwork won’t keep the person at the top of the ladder safe, yet at the same time we we want to make sure we do everything we can to look after ourselves and our people. That’s where we step in. We empower you to manage health and safety, in the simplest way possible.

From our scan boards to our digital app, we put the right tools in place to make on-site safety a priority. Every single one of us has a responsibility to ensure our sites are safe for all workers and anyone who steps onto site.

HazardCo, health and safety made simple.
