Introducing the HSW iPhone App: Health & Safety Information - Anytime Anywhere

FERGUS, Ontario May 2, 2012 Health and Safety Watch - The Health & Safety Watch team is very excited to announce the availability of the first HSW mobile app!

The HSW iPhone app is the only all-hazards, multi-jurisdictional, real-time health and safety information resource for your iPhone. Led by public health experts, HSW delivers personalized information on Canadian advisories, recalls, and warnings; giving YOU the information YOU need to make safe and informed choices for yourself and your family. The HSW iPhone app brings you all the same valuable health and safety information as the HSW website, with the additional feature that when location services are enabled, Events are ranked by distance to your specific location.

Everyday there are warnings, advisories, and recalls posted on hundreds of government, industry and media websites telling Canadians about potential dangers in their midst. It could be a recall of a baby product or food product, new boil water advisory, or urgent advice concerning a local disease outbreak. In order for you to get all the latest health and safety information, you would need to visit many different websites.

Using lists, maps, search capabilities, ranking algorithms, and your location, the HSW application helps you find health and safety information on a variety of topics most important to you: Food Products, Consumer Products, Health Products, Public Health, Water, and Environment. You can also use the HSW application to find and review local public health inspection results. Starting with Toronto, Ontario and expanding to other communities soon, use the current inspection status of restaurants and other food premises to help plan your day.

Come across a health and safety Event not reported on HSW? What are the most important issues facing the health and safety of your family? Use the HSW application feedback feature to let us know. Help us to identify Events and prioritize new HSW features to keep your family safe.

Upcoming features

Together with shortly launching the Android version, many new mobile app features are in development. For example, in upcoming versions you will be able to personalize your HSW mobile app by linking it with your HSW on-line account preferences.
