Tsunami Solutions Ltd is a software company headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
In 1998, WorkSafeBC enacted regulations to improve the safety of workers working alone. Federal legislation followed with Bill C-45 on March 31, 2004. This federal legislation amended the Canadian Criminal Code, imposing serious penalties for employers not providing employees safety from injury or death.In response to the legislation and to address this issue for employers, Tsunami Solutions founder, Thomas Touhey, created a lone worker monitoring service, SafetyLine Lone Worker, in 1999 that ran on Wireless Application ProtocolWireless Application Protocol devices (WAP). There were few users utilizing WAP devices at the time, so the company pivoted to using Interactive Voice Response (IVR) check-in service, and later began using mobile apps.
