Washington – OSHA on Jan. 10 announced the four winners of its Worker Safety and Health App Challenge, which called on designers to submit computer applications showcasing workplace safety and health hazard prevention.

Twenty apps, designed to run on Internet browsers, smartphones and social media platforms, were entered into the contest. Winners were chosen for four award categories: safety in the workplace innovator, safety and health data, workers’ rights, and people’s choice.

“The winning entries place new technologies in the hands of young workers and their employers, making safety and health resources even more accessible,” OSHA administrator David Michaels said in a press release.

Winners shared a total of $30,000 in prizes.
