Kane St Quintin, Founder and CEO at Visibly, said: “Think of someone digging a hole (excavating). Sounds simple, but hit a high-pressure pipeline and you’ve got fatal consequences. It’s a dangerous task – so how is it taught? In a classroom, with a 20-question written assessment. This is clearly ridiculous. It’s situations like this – and their larger-scale impact – that we’ve set out to change.”

The infrastructure industry in the United Kingdom is centuries old and subject to strict regulations, especially concerning training. In an industry where physical danger is paramount, regulations play a crucial role. However, in the past, legacy training providers have interpreted regulations in a way that drives up costs, obstructs access, and prevents workers from receiving the training they require to perform their jobs safely.

In reality, certification programmes consist of antiquated classroom instruction that is little applicable to real-world situations and remains constant for years despite advancements in standards or technology. The worst case scenario is that someone gets hurt or the community suffers harm, but no one has tried to modify the industry's complicated regulations and hierarchy.

That's why Visibly was established. Kane St. Quintin, the organization's founder, understood that our interpretation of these regulations is the root of the issue. By updating the strategy, both blue-collar and green-collar workers will receive the education they are entitled to, as well as the knowledge and skills the built environment requires.

Because of Visibly's user-first technology, employees can receive on-demand education that fits their unique needs and applies to the real world. They can also take advantage of benefits that office workers often take for granted during training, such as peer-to-peer feedback and expert-led coaching.

Hanel Baveja, Investor at Creandum, commented: “We’re excited to back the Visibly team in disrupting a massive and completely underserved market in Europe: blue- and green-collar certification and compliance. As we’ve seen with many amazing companies we have partnered with, their unparalleled focus on user experience in a legacy-dominated market and first-hand experience with these problems convinced us that this was the team to back.”

The Visibly crew will be assembled with the help of the most recent investment round. In addition to recruiting, Visibly will expand the range of regulatory certifications it offers and expedite product development in order to keep up with its expanding clientele.
