If you have an iPhone, and iPad or an Android device, you are by now well aware of the number of apps that you can download to do everything from using your device to make sure something is level to playing angry birds.
As a safety officer, your boss probably won’t be overjoyed to see you using the later app during business hours and he might rethink letting you even have your mobile device at all. Instead, you can show him how necessary you iPhone really is when you use it to make your job easier and more automated.
I’ve sent you over to Dave Weber’s site before and I’m going to do so again. Today I want to send you to his Safety Apps page where you’ll find a nice list of apps that you can download for your iPhone, and iPad or Android device.
Here are a few that I’ve copied from that page to whet your appetite and get you to go visit and download some of the apps that he’s linking to:
SafetyNet – The SafetyNet app from Predictive Solutions allows customers to predict, and ultimately prevent, workplace injuries. First, the app allows customers to conduct inspections and collect workplace safety observations from their job sites. Next, the app synchs these observations with the SafetyNet web application where advanced and predictive analytics are performed on the data. The SafetyNet predictive analytics helps customers identify where they are most likely to have a safety incident or injury, and then report and communicate that information to their work teams and management.¹
