CLOUD M launches its Blerter business app for the Apple Watch
Health and safety app Blerter will be available on Apple's wearable Apple Watch at launch.

Blerter is a new concept in health and safety that takes users beyond compliance to empower individual responsibility, safety-first team collaboration and real-time situational and hazard awareness.

“Making the app available on the Apple Watch was the logical next step,” says CEO Richard Gill.  “Blerter allows managers to inform staff of changing hazards and for staff to report health and safety issues up the chain to the appropriate manager. Making all of that available on an iPhone means the staff are safer when working on site but having the alert functionality available on the Apple Watch adds a whole new level of usability.”

The Apple Watch Blerter app allows users to receive instant haptic notification of alerts, hazards and other messages.

“It’s easy to miss an alert on your phone when you’re working on site, but having something strapped to your wrist buzzing away is a lot harder to ignore.”

Keeping track of who is on a work site is one of the biggest headaches of any project – with Blerter on the Apple Watch, staff can check in and out of sites as they move about during a project.

“We often see situations where staff from several teams are working across multiple projects for different clients. If there is an incident a lot of time can be taken up trying to work out just who was on site at the time. With Blerter on the Apple Watch, a lot of that frustration is taken away.”

Staff can be notified of hazards or even changing requirements on the job quickly and easily through the app and staff who find something that poses a hazard can report it by sending a “Blert” – a quick message with a photo of the problem.

“Typing out a text message isn’t the easiest thing to do in many industrial situations, but by using the Apple Watch’s voice to text capability, sending Blerts becomes quick and painless.”
