Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • no registration or sign in required
  • well organized – easy and logical to use without any instruction
  • visually it looks great
  • can be used off-line

Thumbs Down

  • the “safety jobs” section shows only six job openings for the entire USA
  • “safety training videos” are not searchable, most are low resolution, many would not play properly, and some are nothing more than advertizements
  • “safety headlines” are old, they only post 3 or 4 each month, and most are from small countries that we have no interest in
  • we see little value in this app and will never use it

Overall Rating

  • iPad – ♥♥
  • Android♥♥
