Austere established the risk management system for the St Helens Mountain Bike Trails on behalf of Break O'Day Council.

The public app included:

  • an offline safety map
  • trail information
  • emergency information
  • a 'report a problem' function to populate the closed-loop hazard mitigation system.

The risk management system for mangers and trail maintenance included:

  • risk assessment

Emergency responders are able to access time-saving information such as:

  • distances and time to access/egress emergency points
