Our Founders Shane and Roslyn Ridley grew up and worked on farms in Queensland’s Lockyer Valley.
Commencing in 2004 with CPE Rural, they built one of Australia’s largest and most respected Labour Hire companies specific to Agriculture. Clients included smaller Mum and Dad growers and medium sized enterprises as well as some of the largest names in Australian Agriculture including Pioneer Seeds, Cotton Seed Distributors, Premier Fruits, Perfection Fresh, Costa Group, Houstons Farms, One Harvest and more.
In 2010 they started OTrain a company dedicated to helping create online training and helping to make online training work. Since that time OTrain has had the opportunity to work with Employers, Registered Training Organisations, TAFE Colleges, Not for Profits and Government to directly deliver training to more than 600,000 enrolled users and influence the training or many more.
SafeFarm is the culmination of the challenges associated with onboarding and managing large and agri focused workforces and the specific challenges of working with remote, seasonal employers with English as a second langue and the benefits of online training.
