Organisation details

Please describe the main road safety challenges/problems you have addressed or are addressing. 
It can be difficult to get safety information out to workers who are working in the field and they may not always have access to a computer. But usually, they always have a smartphone. It would therefore be helpful if information about occupational health and safety came down that road. Svevia has today estimated about 450 employees who are at substantial risk for this. About ¼ of the company's employees are subjected daily to be working alone. This safety app will solve this.
What are your objectives? 
Make it easier for Svevia employees to take part in safety information.
Decreasing the risk of not gettting in contact with someone ,when laying around hurt somewhere.
Decreasing the risk of not be able to get in contact with someone in case of emergency, threat or violence.
Increasing risk awareness of Svevia employees.
To show Svevia employees and others that it is important with safety at Svevia.
In the long term create a better safety culture.

Name of action 

At launch we did as many efforts as possible, simultaneously to get as many downloads as possible at one time. (Boost) The more downloads on the same day, the higher the app gets in the ranking list.And its more viewable. It ended up high in the rankings and more people (including our employees and subcontrctors)where able to see it and download it. More things need to be done regularly: Advertising, Reporting to appreview media as many as possible. App and safety magazines and more.We will try to promote it as much as we can. We will also promote it on our internal website and promote it when we do our sitevisits and when we do internal safetyeducations.We also recently had a visit from The Swedish Work Environment Authority and they where impressed by the app and said they maby will be using it for there own cause also when they do inspections.


What has been the effect of the activities? 
With over 2200 downloads and feedback from employees that they feel more safe when using the app.One of the biggest Swedish television channels (TV4) thought this was a good idea and featured the app in The News.
How many people did you reach/have you reached?
