Lion launches their contractor safety system with Pegasus this week, signaling a crucial partnership between one of Australasia’s largest food and beverage companies and the leading workforce management tech company.
Committed to long-term, sustainable growth, Pegasus has found a like-minded partner in Lion and will manage contractor safety for brands starting in New Zealand – including Speights, Emerson’s, Panhead Brewery, Wither Hills, and LK – with expansion of the system to Australia, the UK and USA imminent.
“We’re looking forward to partnering with likeminded innovators who are embracing the use of technology in manufacturing and onboarding a higher skillset of contractors,” said Jo Dixon, Head of Sales at Pegasus.
“One of the great things about Lion is they’re equally excited to work with a subject matter expert in contractor management.”
“They’re looking for Pegasus to take them on the workforce journey as they further expand their safety standards on a global scale.”
“It has been a nice alignment of values as Lion is known worldwide for best practice in safety.”
Keeping everyone safe everyday is a key focus at Lion. The organisation says no matter where people are based, everyone who works with them knows their basic expectations when it comes to safety.
Partnering with Pegasus will see Lion replace a paper-based process for managing contractors which was inconsistent, labour-intensive, and caused delays for contractors getting on site.
“The current system we have was really difficult to apply across all our international locations – there are different rules and different legislation across the UK, US, and Australia,” said Andy Graves, Safety Leader Marketplace at Lion.
“We need a system that works across those different locations to keep our Lion team members and our contractors safe.”
A partnership with Pegasus underscores their safety essentials as contractors register and maintain their compliance to important safety rules.
“We need to be able to very quickly identify contractors that are qualified to do the type of job we’re asking them to do,” said Andy.
Using a single system with Pegasus will allow Lion to build stronger partnerships with valued contractors across their network. This will complement Lion’s Safety Essentials, one of their key commitments to worker safety and wellbeing.
Pegasus will help us build a Global Contractor Safety Solution across the entire Lion network in Australia, New Zealand, the US and the UK,” said Andy.
We’re proud to partner with Lion as we help them cement their status as leaders in safety.

“The greatest benefit of working with Pegasus has been the high level of innovation and features available in their packages that aren’t available in other products we have investigated.”
“I’d check Pegasus two to three times a day. It became a single source of truth for workers and safety on the project.”
"Working alone, the data entry was extremely high. I could spend one or two days entering 100 – 200 certs. The system is automatically updated, and I save two full days of work all up - yesterday I was done within 4 hours.”
“The Pegasus platform allows us to standardise the onboarding and induction of contractors nationally, with the robust system underpinning our contractor management process.”
“Pegasus is now used in managing safety, job planning and reviewing the commercial side of things. Pegasus is now integrated with everything we do.”
