Over the last several years there has been an explosion of mobile applications available for EHS professionals. So far, the biggest challenge has been finding the applications that will add maximum value to an organization. This can be tricky due to some applications lacking in substantive value, or being too highly configured to specific users to be readily usable for users as a whole.
However, there are plenty of mobile EHS applications available that can provide quick information, increased efficiency, improved compliance, cost reduction, and accident reduction that a wide range of users are searching for. The key is to know which apps can be used effectively to supplement your safety program, not complicate it, and how to find and successfully implement these cost-effective safety applications.
