OSHA-NIOSH Heat Safety Tool app reviews
Needed for work 2/5
By Randal Craft G
I need this for my job to justify any variations from time used for completing duties — however the heat indexes on this ap are lower than both Weather Underground and The Weather Channel — how are they all not the same? Is this giving inaccurate data?
No data 1/5
Great idea, but app will not load any data to calculate heat index. iPhone 6, latest update
Awesome but could be better 3/5
This app it awesome but I won’t give 5 stars. Because it should give you notifications of warnings or have a alarm of high heat index to tell you you need to get inside.
Great App BUT Needs Spanish 5/5
Great app overall. It just needs to have the option of switching it to Spanish mode. Or better yet make a separate Spanish one for FLC contractors and supervisors. That would be deeply appreciated. Thanks
Good but.... 3/5
Useful app but it gives different temperatures between iPhone app an android app. It supposed to pull data from the same place so why the difference.
Needs improvement. 1/5
By J. Nash
When I try to open the app, it attempts to load then crashes. I liked the old one better or update this one so it functions.
Not reliable 1/5
By OSHA Sam
I am a safety inspector and I need this application.
The previous version was perfect but now this app is not accurate, is not reliable.
A waste of time using this app.
Good overall but needs a few tweaks 4/5
It works well. A previous review had an issue with the weather data not matching weather apps, but that is easily edited onscreen so it isn't an issue to me.
I do wish you could input geocoordinates, for the location. This is an issue for me and my workers because we work in somewhat remote locations. Maybe in the next release
Temp off 2/5
Either the location services are off or bad. Reported temperatures and humidity are off by 7-10 degrees or points. Good idea, but may not be reliable. Will continue to check against weather apps.
