Discussion:
A New Safety App?

I'm currently working on a warehouse safety mobile app and have encountered this list of OSHA safety checklists. Are they good?
http://oshaindustrialsafetytraining.com/j/index.php/warehouse-safety-checklists
And since I'm more familiar with computer science than with the warehouse industry, I'm wondering how much warehouses could be interested in using a warehouse safety mobile app that would enable them to conduct and store safety inspections on their mobile devices, as well as share them with others via email, dropbox, etc. ?
I will really appreciate your feedback!
Sincerely,
Yulia

Such applications are very popular now. This is facilitated by the development of technologies that simplify the work in the warehouse. In addition to ready-made solutions, many companies resort to custom applications. So they can create software exclusively for their needs.

Does anyone know about the shock watches they put on forklifts now that react to any impact for safety? Was wanting to know when they hit a certain calibration if they should be recalibrated?

every time you use it it's one less time that it can be used
Daily safety checks are a two way street, beneficial to both the driver and of other staff , also providing management with information on their capital expenditure. If drivers donkey tick their safety check logbook and have an accident involving someone being injured the driver must deal with the consequences , on the other hand if a logbook presents an ongoing fault not rectified by management then they must bear the outcome.Logbook checks should only take a competent person a few minutes prior to daily use, any faults recorded , management should be notified, for them to advise what procedure and necessary steps need to be taken. Most drivers are aware of the condition and niggly items that appear with their forklift and do not need to spend excessive time doing the checks unless the forklift is so bad it should be out of service. Here in Australia we have been using this system for 15years now and most companies recognise the benefits of a logbook, it also helps with the relationship of employee/ employer when both take an active part in checks being done and management overseas the logbook recordings on a regular basis. It's like the old proverb a stitch in time saves nine. if you do not understand this ask your dad or grandfather. Check out the Australian logbook website for a extensive range of logbooks for many industries.

20 years in warehouses as in-house lift truck tech. I was at the 1st one for 13 years and my current for 8 years. Hundreds of operators come and go between both buildings. One thing they both have in common. Even when pre-opp inspections a required by employer probably 90% are pencil whipped. Even when done electronicly. They fill them out (or punch them in) without even looking at the inspection points. It seems that Daily Equipment Safety Inspections (DESI's) are only filled out (or punched in) correctly is when the machine ends up in so bad of shape it actually should be having a work order filled out.

It's all just nuts n' bolts.
This is an excellent topic, and I am in the very same situation. Strong computer skills, good warehouse skills.

I see violations daily. Maybe 5% of the staff fill out their pre-trips (and that usually means their machine is broken and they want it fixed). Numerous machine safety issues, (no lights, strobe, backup beeper, fire extinguisher etc.)

My safety guy actually put me into the mech dept to start addressing these issues, but now that I'm "in the department", I find it very difficult to get past the new bosses to implement the safety changes/upgrades.

I will say this, the drivers are good and aware of their machines, but...

Android & IOS app.

You going to bother with Windows phone?

Windows phone is gaining market share around Europe unlike the US.
