Best Apps for the Safety Professional March 11, 2014
So, everybody’s got a smartphone or a tablet, right? If not, what are you waiting for? That little communication device sitting in your hand is no longer just for talking. Gone are the days when you could say the best thing about your phone is that it is rugged enough for your job or it has ‘push to talk’. Now, that device is still your phone, but it’s also your camera, your calculator, your quick reference guide, your email, your weather report, your tape measure, your translator, and your rolodex (remember those?). It can be a rough decibel meter, a level, a compass, a voice recorder, and a document scanner. It all depends on how you use it.
Not too long ago, it would have been a struggle to find a small handful of useful, well-designed apps for a safety professional, but today it would be impossible to write an exhaustive list. Here, I’ve compiled some of the apps I’ve found to be useful.
