New CCOHS mobile app offers easy access to health and safety info on the go

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has released an app that provides instant access on mobile devices to useful workplace health and safety advice and information.

The OSH Answers app serves up the Centre’s collection of online fact sheets that is available on the CCOHS website, which contains thousands of questions and answers on almost 600 topics related to the health and well-being of workers – from workplace stress and chemical safety, to ergonomics and seasonal safety tips.

With the help of the mobile app, users can access OSH Answers offline, in remote areas and jobsites, or where wireless connectivity is absent or unreliable. The app is essentially a virtual safety pocket guide.

The app is available for free on CCOHS’ website, in the Apple App Store as well as Google Play for Android devices, with a web-based version available at www.ccohs.ca/oshanswers.
