Safety Smart Shelf‎

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.”

Safety Ladder‎

Ladders are used day in, day out by decorators, builders, Window Cleaners, the list goes on.
However, more than 2.1 million individuals were treated in U.S. emergency departments for ladder-related injuries from 1990 through 2005, according to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
One way to improve ladder safety is to make sure the angle of the ladder is correct.
The correct angle for a ladder is 75 degrees, any slight difference, and the safety of the user could be at risk.
Simply by holding “Safety Ladder” against the ladder will assist you in finding the correct angle. As soon as 75 degrees is reached, the phone will vibrate, letting you know your ladder is at the recommended angle.
Why be concerned about ladder safety?
“Individuals using ladders are often not mindful of the severe risks associated with use,” said the study’s co-author Lara Trifiletti, PhD, MA, principal investigator in the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Columbus Children’s Hospital and an assistant professor at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
“Increased public health initiatives that target men and women, especially of working age, could help reduce the number of ladder-related injuries.”
This is the first U.S. study to use national data to comprehensively examine nonfatal ladder-related injuries.
During the 16-year study period, the number of ladder-related injuries increased by more than 50 percent. Nearly 10 percent of injuries resulted in hospitalization or transfer to another hospital, approximately twice the admission rate of consumer product-related injuries overall, according to the research.
*Please note, the application relies on the accuracy of the device and iPear Ltd are not responsible for any inaccuracies of the angle.
