eNews FLASH – June 2014

Vote Now! NIOSH’s Ladder Safety smart phone app is a finalist in the national HHS Innovates awards contest. The app takes the guesswork out of preventing painful and possibly disabling, even fatal, falls from ladders. Real-time, interactive prompts and displays put the critical information in one place: the palm of the hand. Choose the right ladder for the job. Place it in a stable position and angle. Use it safely. Maintain it properly.

The HHS Innovates program recognizes and celebrates internal innovations by employees and promotes these innovations across HHS as well as to the public. The public voting period for selecting “The People’s Choice” will take place through June 13. Vote here: www.hhs.gov/idealab/pathways/hhs-innovates/external icon.
