Health and safety app in top ten downloads

A health and safety app is in the top ten most downloaded business apps in the UK.

The RNF Digital Innovation Safety Wizard App was launched last Friday after being awarded a £100,000 grant in 2014.

The app is free to download and has drawn information directly from the Health and Safety Executive toolbox guidance. It’s aimed at offering SMEs a solution to help navigate health and safety information.

It includes advice on working environments and the most common causes of accidents as well as simple risk assessment tools for common hazards like electricity, gas, manual handling and COSHH.

The app has had 638 downloads of the app since it was launched on the Apple iOS platform.

RNF Digital Innovation secured a £100,000 grant from the Technology Strategy Board smart fund in March 2014 to develop the app.

Rob Mannion, managing director of RNF Digital Innovation said: “We are delighted that the Health and Safety Executive has supported us in developing the Safety Wizard app.

“With its simple navigation and user-friendly information sections, we believe the Safety Wizard app will prove an invaluable aid for small and medium-sized businesses.”

The app is currently exclusive to the Apple iOS operating platforms and is free to download from iTunes.
