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.

3M™ Aura™ HD

Official Description  

“The 3M™ Aura™ HD app is optimised for the iPad and has retina level images to take advantage of the new iPad display.  The app provides you with everything you need to know about the new 3M™ Aura™ 9300+ Particulate Respirators including a brochure, user instructions and videos demonstrating the features and benefits of the Aura™ 9300+ products.  You will also find a Respirator Selector to help you choose the appropriate product for your needs.1
