iConstructSafe is a collection of 2-3 minute safety reminder videos for the construction professional’s use at the job site (no wifi needed). The app includes a selection of safety videos on power, hand, air, gas and other powered tools. It includes videos on PPE, preventing falls, ergonomics and more.
These 2 minute videos are designed to remind workers on how to use tools safely, right before they use a tool. The worker uses a menu to select the tool video and watches safety tips on the tool, on site, at the tool crib. The app is a collection of engaging short videos that are stored and viewable on an iPhone, iTouch or iPad; no wifi is needed at the site.
Videos remind users on key tips on using tools safely; videos are not intended to be training. The time between training and using the tool can be weeks, months or even years. And most training videos are too long to be replayed at the site. Attention spans are short, and worker time is expensive. Watching a 2-3 minute video right before using a tool provides timely information to recall information and avoid costly incidents.
Warning: the videos are resident in the app so this safety app can be used on a job site without wifi, so it takes 5-10 minute to download the app given the size of the video files.
Monthly video updates will be posted; connect with wifi and get new safety videos and updates, including foreman’s tips on “toolbox talks” and ideas for superintendents running monthly or quarterly safety/productivity meetings.
The app also features a safety tip of the day. Please follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook, and view our daily safety tips. For additional information or to provide us with feedback please visit us at iConstructSafe.com.

A big leap...
This app is a big leap forward in construction safety. My company regularly consults on construction safety practices, and based on our assessment of this new app we'll be recommending it pretty widely to clients (to provide to their crews for both iPhone and iPad). Engaging interface, great videos, solid search functionality, and on-point content. Also, having the video content resident on the device is more practical than relying on network access on-site.
Safety on the go
This is a great set of tutorials on how to use construction tools safely. Now you can review safety techniques when and where you need them.
The interface is user friendly. The explanations are simple and easy to understand, and most tools are already covered with more on the way.
This should benefit anyone who uses construction tools and equipment.
Well presented and very user friendly. Videos load very quickly which is great for training environment. Will definitely use and share this app with my construction buddies.
