People have long observed animals for signs of impending hazards or evidence of environmental threats. To many, the story of how the canary became a symbol of safety for miners is well known.
Long into the 20th century, coal miners brought canaries into coal mines as an early-warning signal for toxic gases, primarily carbon monoxide.
With our logo, we pay tribute to this extraordinary little bird. By placing the canary in a shield, we want to connect our logo with our mission of helping our customers to create safe, sustainable, efficient, and attractive workplaces through user-friendly SaaS tools.
