National Trench Safety, Houston-based specialist in rental and sales of trench and traffic safety equipment, trench and traffic safety engineering and OSHA-compliant training classes has released its new NTS Mobile App, designed for anyone working with trench and traffic safety equipment.

“We believe we have created a tool with a lot of unique functionality built into this app that will make it a must have item for contractors and their crews,” said Ron Chilton, president of NTS. “This app is a total handheld resource that contractors should find highly valuable. Our app is not an advertising tool, but rather this app puts all of the specific tools a contractor needs and is required to have on any jobsite in the palm of his or her hand. One of the features we’re most excited about is the app’s ability to allow a contractor’s ‘competent person’ to complete an electronic excavation daily checklist, to log that checklist for future reference and the ability to print, text and/or email those logs.”

The NTS Mobile app will also provide real-time access to and the ability to print, text and email manufacturers’ tabulated data, product depth ratings and weights, OSHA sloping and benching tables, and all relevant OSHA excavation, confined space and fall-protection standards.

“As technology has permeated our industry and culture, it’s made some really unique things possible that weren’t feasible as little as a decade ago,” added Chilton. “The NTS Mobile app is the first of a series of technology-related services we’ll be introducing over the next year. We also remained committed to bringing new products to the market and have a couple planned product launches for later in the year.”

The NTS Mobile App is currently available on the Apple Store for both the iPad and iPhone and will be available for download for Android phones on the Google Play Store in late February. The app is offered free of charge to users. NTS has several updates planned for the app during the next few months to further enhance the app’s functionality and will be actively seeking feedback from the app’s user community about way to enhance its value.
