The Audit tool is equally useful for internal audit as well as client company Audits.  The app allows the auditor to:

Thumbs Down

  • cost is $24.99 (Android version is $50.00)
  • no instructions – you will waste time trying to learn how to use this app
  • can’t either modify questions or add your own questions
  • only the Android version allows you to delete questions
  • a detailed explanation of each survey question is critically needed
  • only someone already very familiar with OHSAS 18001 will be able to use this app


Overall Rating
