Contractors, workers and safety professionals have access to an increasing number of free or relatively inexpensive applications for smart phones that can help to keep construction sites safer. This collection of apps was put together by the National Response Team's Worker Safety and Health Subcommittee and focuses on emergency response. The NRT produced this listing for informational purposes only and indicates it isn't a comprehensive list. There are many useful apps in this list including a sound level meter, a light meter, the NIOSH Pocket Guide, the DOT ERT Guide, WISER and emergency preparedness guidance for the home.
