Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • both iPhone & iPad apps are offered
  • no registration or sign in required
  • well organized – easy and logical to use without any instruction
  • looks great, beautiful photos and illustrations, easy to read
  • each “Safety Moment” seems to be technically accurate and consistent with OSHA regulations (see LOTO screen print above)
  • Safety Moments can be emailed, printed, copied or saved
  • great resource for training new hires or for use in group safety meetings
  • can be used off-line

Thumbs Down

  • most of the 50 Safety Moments are very broad and general in scope – we’d like to see more “specific” Safety Moments offered 
  • there are far too few Safety Moments – we’d like to see hundreds more developed and included with this app

Overall Rating

  • iPad  – ♥♥♥♥
