November 2, 2016 - The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has released a mobile app that provides instant access to workplace health and safety advice and information.

The OSH Answers app serves up the centre’s collection of online fact sheets (available on the CCOHS website), which contain 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.

Users can access OSH Answers offline, in remote areas and job sites, or where wireless connectivity is absent or unreliable with this app.

“An important part of safe work is having the information and advice you need, when you need it. With the OSH Answers app anyone can get instant answers to their workplace health and safety questions on their mobile devices, whether they are in the office or out at a job site with no Internet connection,” said Gareth Jones, CCOHS president and CEO. “It really is about providing greater access to a resource that could help prevent work-related injuries and illnesses.”

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
