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.    

 

ISHN

 

Official Description  

“ISHN Magazine allows users to access ISHN-exclusive content via smartphones and tablets. Industrial hygienists and safety and health managers in oil & gas, manufacturing, construction, healthcare, service and other industries can search and read both magazine and website articles, how-to features, blogs, EHS and public health news, regulatory updates, and product information. Additionally, they can view videos and receive alerts to breaking news.1

 

Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • good graphics, visually attractive
  • simple, easy to use, no instructions needed
  • well written, authoritative safety and health articles
  • articles are updated once each month
  • can be used off-line

 

Thumbs Down

  • before you can use this app, you first must register at their website to get a free ID and password
  • the search feature does not work very well
  • this app locked up with regularity on our tablets (did not test with smartphones)
  • the table of contents is hard to find, when on the home page click on the orange box in the upper left corner to access the table of contents

 

Overall Rating

  • iPad / iPhone  – ♥♥♥♥
  • Android –  ♥♥♥♥
  • Overall – Great content, but the many lock ups are frustrating.  Because of the lock ups, we prefer to read this safety magazine on the ISHN website.
