SafetyCulture’s Acquisition of SHEQSY

Herbert Smith Freehills has advised SafetyCulture on the deal.

SafetyCulture acquired SHEQSY, a cloud-based lone worker safety app. 

SHEQSY’s app gives organisations visibility of their employees in the field to ensure their safety when alone. It also gives the workers access to a platform that powers real-time alerts to the organisation for missed check-ins, failing to finish a job as planned, and a quick duress alarm activation for peace of mind in case anything happens. The integrated suite helps workers feel safer when working alone, as well as allowing businesses to easily manage, monitor and report on their safety.

This acquisition follows SafetyCulture’s investment in SHEQSY’s seed funding round.

The Herbert Smith Freehills team was led by partner and Co-Head of Venture Capital Clayton James (Picture) and senior associate Thomas Kelly, with a team including solicitors Vincent Greco Schwartz, Stephanie Simm, Katherine Duong, Sam Gonski, as well as senior associate Tess Mierendorff and support from Co-Head of Venture Capital Elizabeth Henderson.
