What are the Anthill Cool Company Awards?

The Cool Company Awards were launched in 2006 as a way for Anthill to acknowledge and celebrate Australian organisations that are doing things differently to bring about positive change. Cool Companies stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are trend-setters in attitude and action. Quite simply, they are … cool! More.

What’s a software company doing in the field of occupational health and safety?

You might be surprised. Concept Safety Systems introduced a way to fast-track businesses en route to compliance with Federal and State safety laws. Firemen and regulators alike have given their approval. If you’re in Queensland, there’s a good chance CSS will know its way around your office better than you do.

Their signature software product is the Fire and Emergency Program, or FEP. This product serves as an upgrade over the traditional face-to-face workplace safety instruction that occurs on-site. The FEP can be accessed by employees at any time, while still giving them an interactive run-through of how to react in case of emergencies.

But where this program really stands out is its one-of-a-kind mapping technology. FEP lays out the floor plans for an organisation and pinpoints the exits, evacuation routes, first aid stations and potential hazards. Meaning, obviously, it’s very much site-specific.

CSS developed the software in a private-public partnership with the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service. To market FEP in state, representatives from both organisations present at seminars and client meetings. Still, the technology at the core of this solution is applicable to laws Australia wide. The next step is to partner with more fire safety consultancies, while continuing to enhance its maps with spatial technology. Of CSS’s 450 clients, the bigger names to have signed on include Qantas, Virgin Airways, Queensland Rail, Airservices Australia and Royal Flying Doctors Service — icons of safety all.

Just the same, working around occupational hazards hasn’t blunted the CSS team’s edge. To celebrate another year of achievement, they informed us, they’ll be throwing their Christmas party with “40+ firemen who use water to put out fires, but rarely drink it.” Oh, dear. Have a ball, guys, just keep the path to the loo clear at all times. Cheers!
