Free CCOHS Safe Work app for workplace health & safety
By Anthony Capkun
October 26, 2021 – The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety (CCOHS) has launched a free app “to help make workplace health and safety resources on Covid-19 accessible to workers in Canada”.
The CCOHS Safe Work app hosts the centre’s collection of over 120 Covid-19 resources, including industry- and sector-specific tip sheets, infographics, videos, and other guidance materials created to help workplaces keep their workers and customers safe.
Topics include things like how the virus spreads, responding to Covid-19 in the workplace, health & safety planning for employers, hazard and risk assessment identification, rapid testing, screening tools, vaccines, worker rights and responsibilities, and more.
Users can search by topic or type of resource, save items to their favourites list, and share videos and other resources.
Once downloaded, no internet connection is required to run the app, meaning it can still be referenced in remote areas.
The CCOHS Safe Work app can be downloaded for free via the CCOHS website.
* At time of publication, the app was available for iOS, while Android is marked as “Coming Soon”. In the App Store, the app is marked as “Designed for iPad”, but we were able to download and use it on our phones.
