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.

Incident Cost Calculator

Official Description  

“What does a workplace incident really cost?  While you can’t put a price on a worker’s health and well-being, you should know the financial cost of a workplace incident.  By uncovering the obvious – and not-so-obvious – costs of an incident, this calculator uses sample accident and injury scenarios from a number of industries to show why a safe workplace is good business. “1

 

Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • no registration or sign in required
  • great instructions and instructional videos
  • developed in Canada, but can be used in any other country with any monetary system
  • extremely detailed with 6-pages of information that you are required to input on each accident
  • six industry presets
  • custom analysis available that’s based on your own hours and pay-rates
  • this puts OSHA’s “Safety Pays on-line accident cost calculator to shame
  • can email completed summaries to interested parties
  • can be used off-line 

 

Thumbs Down

  •  no identifiable shortcomings – this app does only one thing,  but it does it extremely well

 

Overall Rating

  • iPad/iPhone –  ♥♥♥♥♥
  • not available for Android
