App's - Do you use / would you use?

Post by cmiosh69 »

Do any of you use safety apps, if so do you find them useful and would you pay for a good one?

Hi CMIOSH69

iAudior is very popular and ideal for checklist / inspection etc. plus it is free.

I use APPS to give an indication of noise pressure levels (I have verified the results with a calibrate noise meter and difference is minimal).

Technology is having and will continue to have a huge impact on our lives. It can be used to streamline and simplify the way we operate to make our systems and processes more efficient. Any APP to be sellable needs to have what H&S professional need and want but each will want something different, so the APP would needs to be modular to cover a variety of industries.

not using apps. I expect me not to need one. I expect the employees to be working safely from knowledge taught and remembered. As safety is something you do I have a tendency to steer away from such stuff. It is very usefull for me to process KPI data so that senior management can look at it .
I think you can spend a lot of time with data, collating, checking etc but it gets in the way of the work which pays the wages.
I see large companies spending oudles of money to eliminate a probability that is remote.
I see companies spending money on tech stuff but not enough on training individuals to a true level of confidence.

I used to use I-Auditor as mentioned above.

Our company uses work mobile from Salesforce. The app is free but am sure there is costs involved for the hosting etc.

We use it for auditing and linking it live to an online job/estimate so the client, us and the supplier can all see it.

I have a couple of apps for light measurement & sound measurement. Handy if out and about to give an indication before I pull the calibrated stuff out of the cupboard.

Also use a couple of apps for auditing and suchlike.

I don't currently but I have just downloaded IAuditor and it does look impressive so I am going to give that a tried as it should cut down on paper work.

Now all Ineed is a smart phone to download it.

I've just done a First Aid at Work re-qualification with St John Ambulance, and I can thoroughly recommend their First Aid app - available on Android, iOS and Blackberry. Can't provide any links as I'm on the work PC.

what would an app have to do to tempt you to purchase it?
