SAFERME — SpotCast, a new video sticker platform was recently launched by SaferMe. The platform enables instructional and safety videos to be embedded on durable QR Code stickers. The sticker is placed on any piece of equipment and employees can scan it with their smartphone or tablet and watch the embedded video.

SpotCast aims to solve the challenge of how to easily deliver instructional videos to employees, states a release, adding no sign-up is required. The product will be marketed to the manufacturing, engineering, utility, physical security, facility management, contracting and construction sectors.

The stickers, which are unique to each company, are ordered from SaferMe. Once the SpotCast stickers arrive, the user follows three steps:  the sticker is placed on any piece of equipment or in any important location; the QR code sticker is then scanned and the user is prompted to record their video; and the video is uploaded to the QR Code and becomes active.

SpotCast can be updated with new videos at any time and the stickers are durable.

“The type of instructions that employees really require involves more than just reading a manual, or listening to a verbal instruction,” said Clint Van Marrewijk, CEO and founder of SaferMe, in a statement.

“Doing a job for the first time can be difficult, or dangerous, or both. Next to in-person training, video is the best instructional medium by far, for a business environment. Training managers can’t be right next to someone all the time, to show employees exactly what to do. That’s where video comes in.”
