Best Apps for EHS Managers

Most Useful Mobile Apps for EHS Managers

September 6th, 2016

Managing compliance is a full-time job and to do it well, EHS managers need to have the right tools. We’ve put together a list of apps that we like (and use ourselves) to make EHS management a little easier.

We've broken them down into three categories: EHS-Specific Apps, General Business Apps, and Travel Apps (for those EHS managers who are on the road a lot visiting mulitple sites.) 

EHS Apps to Download Today

Here were some favorites from our consultants:

General Business Apps to Make Your Life Easier 

Get the job done wherever you are:

  • Google Translate (for global collaboration)
  • Adobe Fill and Sign (complete and send PDFs)
  • SafeNet MobilePASS (for extra security when accessing data remotely)
  • Genius Scan (uses your smartphone camera to take photos of documents and converts them to PDFs and can assemble multi-page documents on your phone) 
  • Evernote (capture notes, build checklists, pull in images, PDFs, links and files, and share with your co-workers)
  • Egnyte (access files when away from your computer and save them locally to read offline)
  • Converter Plus (for unit conversions)

Travel Apps to Save You Time and Stress

Our road warriors swear by these:

  • Waze (for avoiding traffic when heading to sites)
  • TripIt (for organizing travel plans and sharing them with others)
  • Rail Crossing Locator (provides railroad crossing info including the owner, crossing ID, and milepost. Extremely helpful to our railroad experts on a recent emergency response project.)
  • AccuWeather (loved by all for their extremely accurate forecasts and current precipitation tallies.)
  • SpotHero (lets you find and reserve parking spots in major cities)

Check these apps out today, then reward yourself for your great work by using Untappd to quickly find a great beer list near you.
