What It Means To Find A Meaningful Career

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Straight from the mouths of our employees, they tell us what it’s like to work at SafetyCulture.

Location: Kansas City office

Before I started working for SafetyCulture, I worked for a career fire department within the Kansas City metro and I was looking for an app to help prevent complacency within our fire department. Yes, it does happen and isn’t a good thing when we are responsible for responding to people’s worst days. I downloaded the SafetyCulture iAuditor app in March of 2012, which was shortly after the app was released to the Apple app store. And I knew immediately that SafetyCulture iAuditor was going to be something that would revolutionize workplaces around the world. It was a great find as it was the first of its kind available on a mobile device.

After I deployed SafetyCulture iAuditor at the fire department, I was able to close the gap we had faced in equipment readiness. In the fire service, we have medical equipment that is required for different types of incidents. At times, we found the firefighters didn’t check the bag and when they get on a call the equipment wasn’t there. We were able to go from “I believe it is there” to “I know it is there” by using SafetyCulture iAuditor.  My biggest fear was I never wanted to have a moment in my life where a piece of equipment wasn’t available which could have potentially saved a person’s life.

After leaving the fire service, I joined SafetyCulture’s support team in March of 2014 to continue making a difference in people’s lives beyond my local community. I grew up knowing I wanted to help others and SafetyCulture is the place where I can do this at a global level. I worked in a remote office and was the furthest away from the team located on my own in Kansas of all places. However, I quickly started to relate to SafetyCulture’s customers, the issues they faced and the problems they needed to solve. It drove me and I became more passionate about health and safety, as it became clear the mission behind why SafetyCulture iAuditor was created and the real-life problems it set out to solve.

To me, the mission is to give every person in the world the opportunity to return home to their families by reducing risks, hazards or incidents from the workplace. I’m currently the Vice President of Customer Success but during my time in support, I heard from a number customers  in every industry about how iAuditor was helping them create safer workplaces and I knew that we are delivering a great app for them to do just that.

My hope is that we can get SafetyCulture iAuditor in the hands of more people, and with each audit it makes it possible to prevent one less person from an injury or death statistic. I know our team  at SafetyCulture is making a positive impact on our customers’ lives, and even our customers’ clients’ lives and we will continue to make a difference as we listen and stay progressive based upon our customer requests.

What is great about working at SafetyCulture is they empower me to make a difference in people’s lives. By providing best practices, listening to our customer’s feedback, and helping drive innovation as we are truly doing great work we are changing the world one user at a time.
