RNF Digital Innovation’s new Safety Wizard app, designed to help small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) meet their health and safety requirements, has proved an instant hit by entering into the UK’s top ten chart for business downloads.
Only days after its release onto the Apple i-tunes store, the Safety Wizard has proved so popular its entered in at number 9 in the chart for the most downloaded UK business apps for Apple iOS devices.
The app has been downloaded over 1,200 times since it was first launched onto the Apple iOS platform earlier this week.
The free-to-download Safety Wizard app, drawn directly from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Toolbox guidance offers SMEs a solution to help navigate a vast array of health and safety information.
It’s the first time a Toolbox guidance app has been developed using HSE website based information and as a result will offer SMEs the opportunity to access a treasure trove of data at the touch of a button.
The Safety Wizard app gives the user access to straightforward advice on the most common health and safety hazards and shows how SMEs can take practical steps to control the risks in their workplace. There is advice on working environments and on the most common causes of accidents with helpful dos and don’ts. There are sections on the most common hazards such as electricity, gas, manual handling and harmful substances as well as simple risk assessment tools.
Rob Mannion, RNF Digital Innovation Managing Director, said: “We are delighted that the app has had such an immediate impact and charted so high in the official iOS charts.
“It’s the first time that HSE’s Toolbox guidance has been available in this format and offers the user access to a rich seam of information designed to address their workplace health and safety needs. “
“The iOS version of the app has been entirely funded by RNF Digital Innovation and it’s great to see our investment pay off with such a high level of user engagement.
“We are looking now to develop an Android version of the Safety Wizard app and are exploring various funding opportunities to enable us to make this available in the near future.”
