Below is this week’s “Safety App of the Week“.  Every Monday we publish an article that reviews and rates a new workplace safety app.  Our testing is done on Apple iPads and Samsung Galaxy Tab 3s.  We rate each app from to ♥♥♥♥♥ (♥♥♥♥♥ is the best).  Prior app of the week articles are archived here.

Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • no registration or sign in required 
  • wow, the photography in this app is outstanding – this is the most beautiful safety app we’ve ever seen
  • this app is basically a PPE (personal protective equipment) catalog, but it does have some good and usable information on PPE selection, fitting and maintenance
  • a good way to help you select the proper type of PPE for your company

Thumbs Down

  • 2 out of 3 pages of this app are advertisements for this company’s safety products
  • these wonderful safety products are only available to New Zealand and Australia employers (we’d love to see a USA safety supplier produce such a beautiful and useful safety catalog app)

Overall Rating

  • iPad/iPhone  – ♥♥♥♥
  • Android  –  not currently available
  • Overall – visually stunning app with some good information on PPE selection, fitting and maintenance
