Essential Apps for Safety Professionals

22 March 2016

In the past, safety management has relied heavily on paperwork and filing, whether it be accident/ incident forms, safety policies and statements, standard operating procedures, medical information, orientation details etc. The problem with paperwork is that it’s not instantly accessible, it’s inconvenient to store and the margin for error is often pretty large. The reality is that there is no longer a need to rely on the inefficiencies of files and paper. For a very low cost and in many cases for free, any safety manager can tap into a huge pool of resources on the cloud. Here’s a list of the essential apps and online tools for safety professionals:
