Safety App Of The Week

December 8, 2014 Dave Weber No Comments




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.

Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • this app really is “easy” – no instructions are needed to use it
  • can attach photos and videos to your reports
  • built-in spell checker
  • can email completed reports (email addresses are auto-populated)
  • completed reports are archived for future reference
  • works off-line


Thumbs Down

  • unfortunately the “take photo/video” selection button does not work – we found a workaround that involved adding photos/videos from your mobile devices’ library using the “select from library” button (a couple more steps, but this method does work just fine)


Overall Rating

  • iPad / iPhone  – ♥♥♥♥♥
  • Android –  not available
  • Overall – this is the only free risk assessment app that allows you to attach a “video” to your report (a big deal).  Even with the little glitch we found when attaching photos and videos, this is still the best free risk assessment app currently available.
