Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • simple to use, no instructions needed
  • cute name – “Safety Pickle”
  • excellent organization and navigation


Thumbs Down

  • only one “Safety Lesson” is posted
  • some hot links don’t work
  • the hot links that do work are to old YouTube videos
  • they claim its’ Safety News section is updated weekly –  but we found the latest update was over 8 months old

Overall Rating

  • iPad / iPhone  – 
  • Android – not available
  • Overall – good idea, but it’s execution is seriously flawed.
