Brentford FC and SafetyCulture host a football bootcamp

It’s been an exciting couple of weeks in the world of football (or ‘soccer’ for some folks). The Premier League season ended, Ted Lasso fans wept over the series finale, and SafetyCulture teamed up with Brentford Football Club to host an action-packed bootcamp. 

Our SafetyCulture customers and team members were left buzzing after an experience of a lifetime at Brentford FC’s Gtech Community Stadium last week.

After a deep dive bootcamp into the SafetyCulture platform, more than 40 customers and SafetyCulture staff laced up their boots and took to the field to raise funds for the Brentford Community Sports Trust and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.

They got the full game-day experience – from getting ready in the player dressing  rooms, donning Brentford’s official match-day kit, to the stoic walk out through the tunnel – like a real Bee.

We’re thankful to our fantastic customers who joined us, and to this 100-year-old football club for pulling out all the stops to offer this unique experience to our customers and team members.

We welcomed special guests ProtexAI to Bootcamp, with CEO and Co-founder Dan Hobbs delivering a session on the power and potential of AI for the EHS sector. Protex AI is working with SafetyCulture to revolutionize proactive safety management with the support of innovative technology. 

We were also proud to host Brentford’s Head of Stadium Operations, Jess Morris, and Facilities Manager, Declan Mahoney for a fireside session. Bootcamp attendees heard from the Brentford Operations team about their journey with SafetyCulture to date: starting just under two years ago with a single, simple pre-match checklist, the team has now rolled out the SafetyCulture platform across its behind-the-scenes operations.

Pitch perfect on and off the field

In case you missed it, Brentford FC has been using the SafetyCulture platform to improve their day-to-day running of club activities. Since they started using the platform in 2021, they’ve witnessed an improvement movement throughout the club’s DNA. 

They use SafetyCulture to demonstrate that teamwork extends far beyond the players. A lot goes on behind the scenes in the 48 hours before match day. This includes completing essential mechanical and electrical inspections on the grounds and providing the best training for hospitality, facilities, and security staff. They even enlist the help of fans to flag any issues in the stadium via a QR code. 

These actions help deliver a pitch-perfect match-day experience for the staff, the players, and the 17,000 fans at the stadium.
