Top 10 Safety Audit Apps to Help You Save Millions in Reduced Safety Incidents

Kevin HallJanuary 19, 2023

One of the most realistic examples of a safety disaster was the B.P. oil spill/leak in the Gulf of Mexico, which caused 11 deaths of on-field employees. This is an extreme example to begin with; however, it demonstrates the disastrous results of failed occupational safety and health standards. So, what can businesses do to achieve high safety standards while saving their time, money, and resources?

Well, the answer to this question came to me when I met 50 plant safety heads at the last national safety council event in June. Meeting them made me realize the core competencies of safety standards and helped me come up with 10 practical tools that will help you save millions in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) penalties for reduced safety incidents.

In this blog, you’ll learn:

Top 10 Safety Audit Apps To Consider

After all the successful evaluations, I entered some of the top names on the list. They are as follows:

iAuditor by SafetyCulture is the first safety audit app that comes to mind when I think about safety. The app is quite popular in high-hazard industries to perform inspections, capture safety-related information, manage tasks, train working teams, and improve communication on the shop floor. The app is suitable for organizations of all sizes to improve safety practices with regular assessments and frequent checks.

2. Axonator Safety Audit App

The safety audit app by Axonator is one of the most trusted apps used by safety inspectors, supervisors, and shop-floor employees because of its ease of use and high customizability. Organizations use this app to perform safety audits, identify hazards, issue corrective actions, manage OSHA compliance, log and resolve safety violations, and send real-time automated reports. Another interesting fact about the app is that it’s built on a no-code platform, which means it can fulfill your unique needs and support real-world scenarios on the shop floor

6 most advantageous features of the safety audit app are:

2. No-code platform to build custom safety audit checklists & apps to perform risk assessments, OSHA reviews, safety audits, incident & near-miss reporting, and more.

3. Robust safety forms to record risks & near misses, capture safety-violation data, and images, and add annotations & notes.

4. Automated and shareable safety reports and timely reminders, notifications, and e-mail alerts on real-time safety violations

5. Quick assignment and tracking of corrective actions with due deadlines, potential consequences, priority level, and detailed descriptions.

6. Reliable collection of safety-related data in one place (dashboard) to get insights on near-misses, incidents, safety violation resolutions, key performance indicators, and more.

Differentiation Factor

Axonator is a no-code field workflow automation platform. Organizations can use this no-code platform to develop widespread apps ranging from simple digital checklist apps to complex safety audit software in record time and cost. There is quite a fan following for Axonator’s similar apps like safety inspection, digital checklist, and quality management, which all are built on their no-code platform.

10. First Aid: American Red Cross Workplace Safety App

I’m ending my list of top 10 picks with this safety audit app that allows organizations to access lifesaving information from experts instantly. The reason I included this app is that it gives crucial information on how organizations can handle common first-aid situations and be prepared for emergencies with interactive quizzes and videos. However, one of the app’s major drawbacks is that it’s unavailable in locations outside the United States.

Pricing:** This is free as it doesn’t have a paid version
