The Apps of the Irish! The ROI of Safety Link Mobile Apps for Smartphones and Tablets

In honor of St. Patrick's Day I decided to bring you a guest blog from Irish Safety and Risk Assessment Consultant Martin Denny. Martin was one of my very first customers when I started at GoCanvas almost 2 years ago and he's since become a sales associate of ours, populating the GoCanvas Application Store with great apps for on-site safety inspections.

The aim of Safety Link is to enable employers of Small to Medium size companies to comply with their legal obligations which are set out under Health & Safety legislation. This is done by carrying out a Safety Audit of the premises using their own specially built GoCanvas safety apps to identify any hazards that might be present in the place of work, whether obvious or otherwise. The apps assess the risks which might be involved and helps Safety Link put into place the necessary control measures to ensure the safety of all concerned.
