This new app uses visual and audio signals to make it easier for workers using extension ladders to check the angle of the ladder’s position, as well as access useful tips for safely using extension ladders.
The NIOSH Sound Level Meter (SLM) app combines the best features of professional sound levels meters and noise dosimeters into a simple, easy-to-use package. The app was developed to help workers make informed decisions about their noise environment and promote better hearing health and prevention efforts.
When you’re working in the heat, safety comes first. With the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Heat Safety Tool, you have vital safety information available whenever and wherever you need it — right on your mobile phone.
The app allows workers and supervisors to calculate the heat index for their worksites, and based on the heat index, displays a risk level to outdoor workers. Then, with a click or tap, you can get reminders about the protective measures that should be taken at that risk level to protect workers from heat-related illnesses, including reminders about drinking enough fluids, scheduling rest breaks, planning for and knowing what to do in an emergency, adjusting work operations, gradually building up the workload for new workers, training on heat illness signs and symptoms, and monitoring each other for signs and symptoms of heat-related illness.
