About Across Safety Development Ltd

At Across Safety, we don’t see risk management as just a regulatory necessity, we see effective risk management as a way to improve the bottom line and make a business more profitable as well as safe.

 

Simply put, we help organisations manage risk. We do this by providing the right software, training and consulting services to fit their needs. We serve customers from all around the world from a wide range of sectors. 

 

All of our consultants and trainers are subject matter experts not just in risk management but also in their operational backgrounds. In Aviation for example, we have experience including safety department and flight crew roles at Qantas, NATO and the UK Military Aviation Authority.

 

Whilst our foundations are in the aviation industry, we also work with other industries where our expertise can also be applied: oil & gas, healthcare and environment.
