Labeling Assistant - released by Graphic Products - is a new, free mobile app designed to provide users with instant information about pipe marking, GHS/HazCom, OSHA safety signs and office labeling. Available for iPad, iPhone and Android through iTunes and Google Play.
“A growing number of our customers use mobile devices. We expect that trend to continue,” says Steve Stephenson, Graphic Products.“This app was developed based on feedback from customers who asked us about using their mobile devices to identify areas needing labeling.”
Market research indicated that the most requested feature was the ability to add text annotations to the pictures taken for a labeling project. With Labeling Assistant, users can take a picture of a work area, tap on a building support pole in the picture, and enter a phrase such as "place fire extinguisher sign here" as an annotation bubble.
According to Graphic Products, some benefits to this app are the ability to ensure OSHA compliance, enhance facility safety, and identify areas in need of improved organization. Features include the ability to: consult a labeling expert to discuss specific challenges; conduct a visual facility walkthrough; calculate label size and print labels from a mobile device; request 5S, Kanban, Kaizen and other reference guides from the Graphic Products resource library; and to plan a new labeling project.
