Make your workplace safer & more productive
“Mafic was founded with the mission of making workplaces safer after I’d seen workplace accidents happen too many times. I could see that by combing some advanced technology with our operational experience we could build something that would make a real difference to people’s lives. We quickly realised that this same technology could be used to improve productivity as well as safety, and Safeguard was born.”
Will Woodhead, Mafic Founder & Managing Director
Managing Director & Co-Founder
Will spent 18 years leading major construction projects for upstream oil and gas facilities in Africa and Asia. After witnessing first-hand the impact of workplace incidents on colleagues, friends, and their families, he was determined to find a way to make construction sites safer for the people that work on them. Appreciating the challenges of managing thousands of workers on huge construction sites, he was frustrated by the limitations of low-tech options available, and realised that with the right technology it would be possible to improve both the safety of workers and their ability to work productively… and the idea of Safeguard was born.
