Safety Smart Apps are the world’s first industry-specific health and safety apps for the iPhone, iPad and iTouch platforms and proud winners of the inaugural Health and Safety Executive and Institution of Occupational Safety and Health Innovation in safety – small business award.
The competition was judged by the founder of the award, HSE’s Judith Donovan CBE, as well as the HSE’s Regional Director for the Midlands, Rosi Edwards; IOSH Immediate Past President, John Holden; and IOSH Vice President, John Lacey.
About the winning entry, Judith said:
“Our winner was a clear winner, because it was a highly innovative technical solution to create a health and safety app to go on the iPhone/iPad.
John Holden added:
“The winner stood out for me because it was piece of technology young people would use. Young people we know are particularly at risk in the workplace, so anything that gets them on board in the workplace has got to be a plus.”
The Safety Smart Shelf provides users with industry specific, up to date and simplified Health and Safety information. Taking into account current legislation, typical hazards and controls, risk assessment, accident and near miss reporting this app is a must for everyone working within industry.
