About Us

Our History

The Keep It Simple Group came to life through a direct need by tradies for a simple way to manage their WHS compliance without adding more overheads to their business. 

They needed a system that was everywhere they were, didn’t need any paper and was simple to use. So Keep It Simple Safety was born. KISS has expanded to offer the same simple systems to all kinds of businesses from Cafe’s to Retail outlets and Manufacturing plants. 

Now with the addition of full HR systems and support we have expanded to the Keep It Simple Group. 

KIS Group head office is based in Townsville, with a Victorian and NSW office, but we service customers across the country and in New Zealand.
