Our story

Having led panels of enquiry into 16 fatalities and hundreds of audits in high-risk industries, we were baffled by our initial findings.

All companies under the microscope were able to show evidence of:

  • Kitemarked management systems
  • Resource-intensive internal and external audit programmes
  • Costly behaviour-based safety programmes
  • Up-to-date training matrices and registers
  • Top-notch safety teams with budgets to boot
  • A plethora of safety awards

Sounds familiar? 
These unfortunate events shaped who we are today.

Our team of innovators have been hard at work over the past 5 years testing solutions that help renewable businesses steer clear of failures that: 

  • hurt people  
  • damage the environment 
  • increase downtime  
  • delay critical infrastructure projects   
  • reduce confidence in energy security from renewable assets. 

And h’alt® was the result. And we are the h’alt® leadership team.
